Pose Of A Mermaid

This sculpture's had some of the influence of the sun give an opaque quality to the ice, but if you enlarge it, the mermaid reveals herself.


On a side note, this is directed at the antagonistic, bitter, know-it all troll and general waste of oxygen who left comments at my other blog yesterday:


I leave the question to you, whoever you really are, "Sara Miller"... just how far do you want to take this? Because I've already decided your fictional counterpart is going to meet a very bad end.

  3. Oh no sounds like you've been having a few probs since I checked in William, going over to have a look! Meanwhile , super new set of ice sculptures but it looks like their time is running out.. that pesky sun. It's been a pleasure to see these ethereal beauties, merci beaucoup.

  6. It's too bad the sun is aging some of these beauties but at least the temperature has been helpful.

    I LOVE the way you take revenge, William. It makes me smile. ;))

    1. What's up ? You know me ? If not keep your opinion ! Mr. Kendall isn't able to accept other opinions . So I think I've got the right to react. May be you should ask him why he deleted my coms on his other blog. Would be interesting.

    2. Congratulations, Sara, or whatever your real name is: you just crossed the Rubicon. Gloves come off now. And you're the one who started this.

      At least I'm not the one hiding behind a private Google+ page like the gutless coward you are.

    3. How annoying... you've got a troll, too! I tracked mine down to being a miserable uWaterloo biology student, who wished a cat-disease on my grandchildren. SIGH.

    4. Yes, she is a tedious wretch, but then again, her just being herself is a life sentence. A common problem for all trolls.

    5. Trolls are such a nuisance...but not worth your attention.

  7. @Tomas: yes, the sun does have that effect on these things. This might have been one put up the first weekend.

    @Whisk: well, she, he, or it started it, and one more comment out of the troll and I'll take things up a step.

    @Grace: I did delete them- they were gratuitous insults, but then the troll has been doing the same to others elsewhere. Thank you!

    @Halcyon: I had to enlarge it to really pick out the details. If this goes any further, it'll be in my Monday post over in my writing blog.

    @Hilary: I've got the same idea in mind for a choice few other trolls that have crossed my path.

    @Karl: it could have been, actually!

    @Sharon: mermaids tend to be a recurring theme for ice sculptors.

    @EG: thank you!

  9. Mermaid in the snow~~~BRRRR!
    I like the lady.

    What is the matter with people who cannot be happy?

  10. I get crap too. You know, women in revealing lingerie but never have gotten one of these ignorant threats. Maybe the mermaid longs for a pushup bra. Maybe that would set the trolling iidiot straight.

  11. uh oh. war of words...

    poor drippy mermaid slipping back into the sea drop by drop. :)

  12. I love mermaids and I really hate trolls!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, you have the Troll Spray I gave you yesterday.

    It's making the mermaid melt!

  14. you made me smile with your "threat!!" Go get him/her!

    1. And you wonder why I think you're toxic and bitter? You're insulting her interests. Thanks, Sara, at this point all you're doing is giving me more material to work with.

    3. Actually, Sara, I don't have much personal regard for JFK- but that doesn't mean I go around insulting people who hold him in high regard. And as I've said, you've crossed the Rubicon. You started this.

    4. So if I understand I must probably also consider people who admire Mussolini, Staline or Hitler ? Seems logical. If critizing politicians means insulting people who admire them, go and buy a gun to shoot all the historians, journalists and people making inquiries . You know what I think? You love to fight and I gave you the reason. Why should you defend people cause you got the feeling they were insulted by my opinion ? Are you a modern Robin Hood ? I will not comment on your blog anymore and you will miss it!
      Concerning my ID do you really think that all your followers are commenting under their real idendity ? My name is Sara M.. Good luck to you in your fantasy blogland.

  15. @Tanya: it's quite all right- it's been awhile since I've had a good fight, and I've missed it.

    @MB: what started it was on another blog, and repeated comments slagging other people. I responded, and it triggered a number of back and forth things that escalated.

    @Birdman: she could use it in these conditions!

    @Tex: she would about now be a pile of broken ice pieces, I think.

    @VP: and they don't really understand they're trolls.

    @Norma: the troll spray will come in handy.

    @Stefan: I thought so.

    @Gill: I might not even need one more comment out of this troll to go ahead and run with something in my other blog.

  16. You've had a very good run on ice sculptures. It sounds like it might be coming to an end with some brighter sun.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Maybe Sara Miller is a mermaid who meets an Octopus with very strong tentacles.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would love to be there when this exhibition first opens. It is wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow- I've seen snow sculptures before when we lived in Canada , but not ice ones like these- gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love that hair.

    And I'm sorry some skank is trying for attention.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You insulted me first so you're getting in return what you deserve . What's your problem ?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lovely ice sculpture by the way ! Oh there is a bit of hostility going on here YIKES ! Thanks for sharing have a good day !

    ReplyDelete
  23. Enlarging does indeed help.

    I'm sorry you're dealing with some negativity. I hope they tire of it quickly.

  24. A mermaid out of water but made of frozen water...

  25. @Red: it was a very good year for the sculptures.

    @Eve: considering the genre I write in, not likely. She, he, or it has resurfaced as you can see, so I'm taking the gloves off.

    @Lauren: it's great watching carvers at work.

    @Terri: snow sculptures happen here as well, but the ice sculptures are what I love.

    @Cheryl: in an ideal world, "Sara Miller" would just have gone away.

    @Sara: actually, pointing out your habit of making negative comments wasn't "starting it". I was as reasonable as I could be in that first comment. You're the one who started this. Don't go throwing a temper tantrum when it comes back at you.

    @Country Gal: yes, he, she, or it has given me all the excuse I need to keep at this.

    @RedPat: she would be.

    @Hilary: I suspect this foolish person won't be.

    @Ciel: who'd have thought?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that fragile mermaid, but I can't stand trolls! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wonderful, who have thought a mermaid on ice, I've never seen that before

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lovely mermaid! Be gone to your nasty troll. Sorry you have to put up with such nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ok, these really play with my mind - i see a man with a big chin ... a interesting profile. ha. ha!! ( :

  30. Now you've got me wanting to visit the other website and follow "Ms. Miller." It is a shame people can hide behind their aliases.

  31. @Jan: they are a loathsome sort, after all.

    @Geoff: mermaids are a recurring theme in ice sculptures, though this year there were less of them.

    @Lois: she, he, or it, can choke on their own bittterness.

    @Beth: I can see that in this as well. I thought of calling this Why The Long Face

    @Janis: at the very least, sooner or later a character by that name will turn up, and meet a bad end. Whoever she is, whatever the hell made her who she is, I really don't care.

  32. I like the ice sculpture.
    Heated comments? Life's too short. I don't get trolls, spammers, and other time wasters.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I try to remember to enlarge each of your photos. The mermaid is beautiful! Sorry about your problem.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Been enjoying the ice sculptures. As for the other matter, there are some very sad people out there; we all get them from time to time and each one needs handling on their merit. Good luck!

  35. Actually, you don't have to put up with her. You can block her.

  36. We have a wide range of people, some are nasty and resentful.
    It is sad that such people can not be silent.
