Illustration Friday: (The Mermaid) Chair

I was asked recently by David after reading The Mermaid Chair, how I would illustrate it.

So here are three sketches, because no matter how much I read over the book (I went to the bookstore just to look it up since I had returned my copy to the library), I couldn't get a clear image of exactly WHERE the mermaids are on the chair. So: based on the fact that I felt the chair would be very very old and carved out of wood, the largest one on the left is how I felt the chair would appear. Or how I felt MY chair would appear. I would want to be sitting between the two mermaids.

So if you've read the book (and even if you haven't) which one speaks to you? Which one would you want to sit in and pray in?
