Sea Turtle

Acrylic on canvas

24 X 18

After the BP oil spill in the gulf, our shores were awash in oil.  Sea life of all kinds were affected, and the TV network news carried photos of the suffering of birds and turtles in particular, because they were easy to spot as they struggled in the oil.

The artists of one of the Biloxi galleries voted to have a fund-raiser show, giving all proceeds from sales to the Department of Marine Resources.

This painting of a sea turtle was painted for that show, as well as Noble Survivor.
