Artwork Description: Tenacious Turtle Adventure measures 12 x 12 inches and comes in a gold “plein air” frame, complete with picture wire. With the 3 inch frame included, the total measurement is approximately 18 x 18 inches.
My goal is to produce beautiful art that highlights the beauty and comedy of nature. This little guy was a sea turtle that we visited at the NC Aquarium in Atlantic Beach. He was injured by a propeller and had some scar tissue on his back and flippers. The aquarium has a lot of rescue critters that stay there because they are unable to survive in the wild. When I started snapping pictures of this guy, he swam up to the glass and posed- twirling and flipping and coming back to look at me.
