Ain't She Pretty ! (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle)

"Ain't She Pretty"
24" x 24" Acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas

I have noticed on my statistics to this blog that many people are searching for turtles - on the Web, that is.
Since this blog started out being mainly a showcase for my miniature paintings, I had never posted this larger painting before of the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, which is found only in Hawaiian waters and is on the endangered list and carefully monitored.  This one is resting on the beach and sometimes they take naps while sunbathing.   I have taken many reference photos of these marvelous creatures....mostly on the North Shore of Oahu.   Hopefully I will find time to paint another one again soon.   

Thank you for visiting today !
