ATTENTION: You Can Become A Mermaid, Really!

I have discovered my life long goal, and it isn't being rich, famous, successful or a good person (just kidding on the last one) . I want, no I need, to become a mermaid.
Just think about it for a second, swimming super fast, always being in the ocean, helping your sea creature friends...its practically the American Dream, except better.
Celeb fashion photographer Angelina Venturella and amazing underwater photographer Chiara Salomoni have teamed up with the most interesting man in the world, Eric of the Mertailor to capture stunning pictures of "mermaids" to raise awareness AND money to preserve the ocean.
I need to be apart of this and you will too after you see the mind boggling pictures.
Its kind of amazing to see a mermaid out in the open, right by houses! I think thats what I love about this picture. It makes this dream seem a bit more attainable.
Just look at the details on her tail! And the top piece its own work of art! Being able to go to work and be made up to look that outta this world....#goals.
There is something so mystical about his picture. Mermaids have been in folklore for forever, and this picture certainly makes it even more romantic.
Again just look at the TAIL! The Mertailor has found his talent and it is jaw dropping.
I love that project mermaid doesn't just stick with typical mermaid colors. This dark and mysterious mertail is beautiful and completely enchanting.

Collection of Late Philanthropist Don Marron
The Wall Street Journal described three New York galleries as "longtime rivals" for selling the collection of late philanthropist Donald Marron. Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella planned to privately sell over 300 works totaling US $450 million. Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ed Ruscha, etc. are among the artists included. How exactly the trio managed to pull it off, particularly with competition from Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Phillips, may never be public knowledge. “The joy of private sales,” quipped Pace president Marc Glimcher. Many in the industry were surprised by this agreement. In recent news reports, three prominent auction houses were reported to have engaged in aggressive negotiations. The Wall Street Journal report noted that the houses guaranteed that at least $300 million would be paid for the paintings by Donald Marron's widow, Catie Marron. The auction house may be assertive because of its new owner, Patrick Dahi, and the need to make a big splash in its first year. Michael Plummer, the co-founder of Arvest Partners, saw potential in a Christie's partnership. According to a report that cites Pinault, "We know [Christie's owner François] and his family like taking risks on big deals." There are good reasons for the auction houses to be aggressive. According to Artnet Analytics, 35% fewer lots crossed the auction block in 2013 with an estimate above $10 million than in 2012. Additionally, many are concerned that Brexit, Coronavirus, and the upcoming US elections will continue to impact markets. The three New York galleries who won the rights to the collection are framing it as a critique of the auction model, which will make matters worse for auction houses. Glimcher said one of the main reasons the trio teamed up was to "make a point" about how galleries can compete with auction houses. Glimcher told the Wall Street Journal that the talk about numbers and bidding was uninspiring to [Catie Marron's widow]. “Private sales are private, and sometimes that’s an advantage.” A previous report from Artnet highlighted the conceivable procurement of Donald Marron's assortment by a significant sales management firm as motivation to anticipate a turnaround "from a genuinely fair 2019." Now, those expectations lie in the assortment of land big shots Harry and Linda Macklowe, whose separate from procedures prompted a court-requested offer of their assortment, worth an expected $700 million. Artnet anticipates that those pieces should go to sell as right on time as spring. In the interim, Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella get ready for the offer of Don Marron's 300+ piece assortment. The threesome will have an occasion on April 24th, observing Marron's achievement. In spite of the fact that it is indistinct which compositions or drawings will feature the occasion. Furthermore, the exhibitions likewise are not precluding the chance of selling a few pieces before that date. They can't bear to sell the assortment gradually. Among a couple of subtleties, we think about the association is that Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella consented to purchase any piece from Catie Marron that they can't sell. "It was a large chunk of change, so we need to convey—we can't send any works back to her," Bill Acquavella of Acquavella Galleries told the Wall Street Journal. Be that as it may, while it is a tumultuous time for the exhibitions, it is additionally a significant second to respect the memory of Don Marron. Marron established the Wall Street firm D.B. Marron and Co. in 1959. His initial gathering enthusiasm lay in Hudson River compositions. In any case, he developed to see the value in more present-day pieces as time passed by. He proceeded to assist PaineWebber for more than 20 years with their assortment as the organization's administrator. What's more, he filled in as the leader of the Museum of Modern Art, where he likewise gave pieces from his assortment. He passed on of a coronary failure last December, matured 85.
