What a delight it must have been to be greeted by this magnificentGreen Sea Turtle, a true ancient mariner, on a coral reef off the Maui coast.

 My connection to the Honu, Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, began with seeing them sunning on the beach in Waikola Bay, on the Big Island of Hawaii.  From that first encounter, painting a sea turtle is a true reflection of my admiration and pure respect for their peaceful beauty.

In order to capture these beautiful creatures, I developed a process of applying many layers of transparent colours, creating a life-like image.
