rose of sharon by faeriefaeria rose of sharon by faeriefaeria
for those who might be interested, my inspiration for this was from the Rose of Sharon flower [link] and the (glaucus atlanticus) Blue Sea Slug [link]

here, Althea, which is the latin name for the Rose of Sharon, is gathering soma berries with her daughters, which give them their unique coloring. they are actually transparent "mermaids" who get their color from the berries just like the Blue Sea Slugs get their color from feasting on the Portugese Man-O-War jellyfish.

would be happy to hear anything you might want to add to the story ^^

beautiful ! I looked at your references via your links and the Blue sea slug is really neat. Using the two concepts to create this image is terrific.
