"The Little Mermaid - He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not"

oil on canvas 34" x 28"

“I’ve got to see him again” proclaims a headstrong and lovesick Ariel.  She has just come back from her first encounter with Prince Eric, where she saved him from a sudden shipwreck.  Ariel has fallen instantly in love with the handsome Prince and has vowed to become part of his world, no matter what it takes.  Flitting around her mermaid world, Ariel’s happy and lighthearted mood is baffling to her father and sisters.  It becomes obvious to her observant sisters that she “has it bad”.  Ariel has fallen in love.  In this scene, Ariel plays the classic game of “He loves me, he loves me not” with a piece of sea algae.  As she plucks the last petal, Ariel is delighted to discover that he does indeed “love me”. *
