Another amazing rescued green sea turtle experience I had with Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Turt endured a year long recovery journey, only to be deemed a non-releasable rescue – he was adopted by the Florida Oceanographic Society and happily lives in the lagoon at that center in Stuart, FL. Turt emerged as my healing remedy during the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill, and was my first acrylic painting, emulating my flow, blends and contrasts that I was so familiar with in my oil and watercolor process. I have recently applied some of my Natural Earth Paints and Walnut Oil to accent his friendly features! Thank you, Turt!
A gorgeous, 32×32 piece, rustically framed in San Juan Island Driftwood. Allow Turt to greet you each day, and all your visitors with his majestic, “all-knowing” grin.

My journey with this guy is epic. Here are links to just a few of my adventures with Turt, from my early blog in 2010 during the Gulf Oil Spill. I have donated giclee prints, and proceeds from all works of Turt. Including The Carl Safina Center in NYC, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and where Turt currently resides at Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center in FL.
Early Blogs, Although My OceansforLife.org project has now evolved into The Nature Connection and my book Natural Self Discovery, I am thrilled that Turt keeps educating, inspiring, and helping the organizations who are helping Humans find a more balanced relationship with the Oceans:
