"Aqua Champion" Acrylic 30" x 30" is my second turtle painting this month and I got my inspiration from rescued turtles at Miami's Seaquarium. They have a beautiful lagoon with a walkway above it going all the way around. I walked and ran around it many times taking photos as I urged the turtles to move, swim, change position, face the other way and more. I was a mad woman for an hour or two all in an attempt to create paintings that capture the beauty of marine turtles swimming among mangroves in the light of the Florida sun. Such beauty deserves to be shouted from the rooftops.
