Aequeor Tranquillium Mask by merimask Aequeor Tranquillium Mask by merimask
Okay...of all the many many masks I've made, this one here was my absolute favorite. I've always been most proud of my "Fighting Bettas" design and I'd always wanted to do that design in my favorite colors (silvery blue/green), so this was a very special mask for me.

The cool peaceful colors made the fish look less like fighters, more like pacifists. So I named it "Aequeor Tranquillium"..."peaceful oceans".

I have no idea where it is. :shrug: I sent it out into the world...it was meant as a birthday gift for someone I admired (Jon Anderson , who has made music I have loved since I was a little kid), but I have no idea whether he got it or not. Sometimes I do stuff like that; I just send a special piece of art to a person I admire who has influenced my life and my art. Sometimes they get it, sometimes they don't. I hope it's not lost... But at any rate it's done and beautiful and swimming away out there somewhere.

I really wish Jim Henson was still alive. :( Of all the people I'd love to thank, he's at the top of my list. Jon Anderson was the next one.

You make some amazing masks!
If I ever find the need for a mask, I will most definitely order from your etsy. Or if I have the resources to splurge!

I love the masks that you've made, and I agree that this is, if not the best, then at least top three on this site. Leatherworking is one craft I have yet to try my hand at. I admit I'm a little afraid of not being successful.
