Box Turtle – Don’t Bug Me!!

Hello Friends, 

I checked out some cool turtle books from the library a week or so ago.  So I have been working on this box turtle from a book called “Turtles” by Deborah Dennard.  It is in the “Our Wild World Series” of books.  I just loved the way this turtle was all closed up when the photographer took the picture.  I did not trace this one but drew it by sight so it isn’t an exact rendering.  However, it has taken many hours, but I have decided it is finished.  I didn’t do the background exactly the same either.

The photographer who took the picture I drew from is James E. Gerholdt.  In case you ever find this book, it is on pgs. 16-17. James also has published many books of his own on various creatures in nature such as hummingbirds, jumping spiders, etc.  I love both of those but have never drawn any jumping spiders (they are my favorite kind of spider.)

So here is a Box Turtle in hiding!  There is hardly any of its face showing as you can probably tell.  It is just a sliver really.  That is why I chose to draw it.  They are just so cute even when they are hiding.

 

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

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 always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a 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. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
