Galapagos Tortoise

“Gordy” the Galapogos

Hello Friends,

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mine was pretty productive.  First, I spent most of Saturday writing my article about sea turtles and a few of the perils they face every day that could maim or kill them.  I have the rough draft, but still have to get it into my laptop as I wrote it out by hand.  I think better that way and enjoy scratching things out while writing.

Then on Sunday I finished this drawing of a Galapogos Tortoise that I have been working on for a couple of weeks now in the evenings.  I decided to finish it, because I would like to get this article done soon and do some painting which I haven’t done in a while.

In case you don’t know much about Galapogos Toroises, here is a link to an article about them.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gal%C3%A1pagos_tortoise

(I think he kind of looks like E.T.!!)   😉   They are certainly beautiful creatures.  When my husband went on his trip recently and spent the day with some old friends, he discovered that they own tortoises.  He said when they went into the back yard to show them to him, they called its name and it came running up to them like a dog!  Pretty cool, I thought!

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

About whitefeatherfloating

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! :)

  2. I like the swirling lines on its back and its stern look – it’s almost asking why we stopped it on its busy way.
