Oceanid/Ὠκεανίς

A Oceanid

A a visual person I can see some strange things in my head sometimes.  When I saw the above image in my mind, I decided to attempt to paint it.  The painting made me think of an Oceanid-a sea-nymph from Greek and Roman Mythology. There are three thousand Oceanids and they are daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. Each Oceanid were patronesses of  rivers, ponds, lakes and so on.
