Loggerhead Sea Journey IIi
Painting - Oil On Canvas
"Loggerhead Sea Journey" is forth in my series of multiple paneled paintings inspired by the beauty of our underwater world. In this series baby loggerhead turtles enter the sea in great numbers to join their relatives.
The inspiration for the painting came from a trip to the Loggerhead Marine Life Center of Juno Beach where I photographed rescued loggerhead turtles waiting to be released into the wild. I wanted to show the baby sea turtles from another prospective. They are almost always shown heading toward the water on the beach. The adults act as a focal point for each of the three paintings. If you do not look carefully at the paintings you might mistake the babies for fish.
"Loggerhead Sea Journey" is a triptych of the baby loggerheads joining their relatives in the sea. What I like most about this painting is the concept of hope. The Loggerhead turtles are endangered. In this painting, they are happy, almost smiling, and pictured in great numbers. Perhaps, one day, there will be a way to save our ocean's treasures.
My painting (the first panel) was chosen as a finalist for TurtleFest 2009 Poster Contest in Jupiter, Florida.
