Print of a colored ink artwork depicting five mermaids bathing in a hot spring. The spring is surrounded by greenery, and a Japanese maple has dropped some of its orange leaves in the water, suggesting autumn. One of the mermaids is combing another's long hair, while two others are talking lively on the other side of the spring. One mermaid is sitting calmly by herself away from the others with a washcloth on her head. The reflections of the plants around them make the water appear green.

Words from Heikala:

“This watercolor illustration was originally painted for the 2021 Mermay exhibition at Gallery Nucleus. For this piece I chose a lighter painting technique with more gaps, to emulate the patchy and playful lighting of a forest. The gentle steam from the water together with the calm, natural greens and warm orange hues of the foliage brings tranquility to this comfortable early autumn scene.”
