The turtle represents protection, determination and serenity.
The "Sea Turtle" was created using acrylic paints and glazes along with a vintage map of Hawaii and torn pages from a century old book titled, All About Animals copyright 1900 McLoughlin Bros., New York.
An interesting story about this painting….I randomly chose the map of Hawaii for his flippers. Little did I know that within less than a year of making this painting I would be visiting the exact place which is on the map of his left flipper, Oahu!
This is a print of Kelly's original painting. It is printed on a heavy weight paper with archival inks.
