Tristesse the sad little mermaid painting

Somehow this little mermaid turned out sad.  But that's ok.  Sometimes we're sad.  That's life!  One day, my hubby and I were being silly and we were discussing this sad little mermaid, and what possible reason she might have to be sad.  So we made up a little history for her that would explain the sadness...
Once upon a time there was a beautiful little mermaid who lived along the shores of the Baltic Sea with her seven sisters, her father, and her mother...For 20 years she lived without a care, until one day there was the most terrible storm anyone had ever witnessed.  During the storm as her and her family were trying to weather the storm, she was knocked unconscious by a huge piece of driftwood. When she awoke, she discovered she was all alone in the world.  She began wailing in despair, weeping great tears of infinite sorrow...these tears solidified and became tiny drops of beautiful Baltic Amber, which eventually washed ashore and brought joy to many people.  She continues to swim the Baltic Sea, with her sorrow as her only companion.
