Shelly the Hawksbill Sea Turtle

Here is my new watercolor sea turtle. This is a Hawksbill sea turtle. Her name is Shelly, thanks to my friend, Jill Weatherholt.

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will still have my artwork and some writing, but I created a new blog called My Crazy Life! in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now.

  1. Love this Patsy, Shelly is the perfect name 🙂


  2. Jill, I’m so sorry I spelled your last name wrong on my first post! I was at the library and didn’t have much time, so I tried to go by memory! LOL! That’s never good!! 🙂


  3. Shelly looks beautiful and so happy, Patsy! I’m glad you liked the name Shelly. I hope you write Shelly’s story. 🙂


    • Thank you, Jill! I have grown to love the name, and it’s nice to have a female turtle. So now I have Thomas, the Green Sea Turtle, Larry, the Leatherback Sea Turtle, and Shelly, the Hawksbill Sea Turtle! Now I am working on my first drawing of a Loggerhead Sea Turtle. I just need to draw “her” on bigger paper soon.
      I have started somewhat of a story about sea turtles in general, but I wanted to do something that is really simple, like for a picture book for preschoolers, but it is difficult to simplify it that much for me! 🙂
