Starting Life

"Starting Life"

Original palette knife painting (in oils)



Scientists have no clue where baby sea turtles go after they reach the sea. Their lives remain a mystery up until they reach adulthood. It's fascinating but it's something I wanted to explore in a painting. So I painted this tiny little turtle swimming into a vibrant coral reef to hide. This painting has a definite abstract feel to it for sure, which turned out really wonderful. Some seascape paintings don't need a lot of detail and this is one of them. Simple is better!
