I fell in love with Sea Turtles from the first time I saw one while on my very first scuba dive. It was an intro dive for newbies wanting to get certified and at about 20 feet down right along the edge of the reef there it was! It seemed so huge and unconcerned just slowly swimming around. It seemed so peaceful and serene I followed it for a while. Amazing. Since then I have studied them and painted them and sculpted them. One of my favorite art pieces is "Na Kupuna" which means the elder in Hawaiian. His face is so expressive and I think he really looks elderly. Turtles can live even longer than humans but there are many predators and dangers for them too. We were living on Molokai for a while and the Turtles were abundant. I am blessed to have my work, both turtles and fish, in three Hawaiian art galleries and three Florida galleries. The Kupuna piece is on Molokai at the Artists Guild Gallery.
