Sea Turtle Tuesday: Kris’ Turtle

Kris' Turtle Sometimes when I finish a turtle painting, I send out the image in a newsletter and say “name that turtle”, which can be done by simply purchasing the turtle! As did Kris in this situation!  Or make that Kris’ husband. Anyway, more about the painting.

She’s 36X36 acrylic on canvas.  I used a photo I had taken with my new camera that my new husband had given me for our first Christmas 6 years ago.  I was swimming north of Elbow Cay and this little critter came around, and STAYED around for about 10 minutes.  I snapped away.

I had intended to put a reef below, but decided to mottle the blues and suspend the turtle in “water”.  

Kris worked out a trade for the turtle.  I can’t tell you what because I swore to secrecy! But I think we both were happy.

Kris’ turtle is part of the new “Turtle Caboodle” which features 16 different turtles.

Kris is on a coffee cup.  Also, 5″ big dippers,  2.75″ little dippers and 5″ tidbits.  

And, of course, giclees.  Thanks for your interest!
