Pond Turtle and Sea Turtle Doodles

Pond Turtle Doodle

 

Hello Friends,

Last night I was watching t.v. and decided to doodle with my Prismacolor watercolor pencils.  I still struggle with making up drawings out of my head.  This pond turtle, I’ll call him “Tucker,” decided to wear a hat on this hot summer day.

I have been concentrating more on writing for my class than doing art.  I am currently working on a non-fiction piece that is supposed to be a description of a favorite place of mine from childhood.  If any of you know anything about me, you know I don’t have many favorite places from back then, so it was tough to come up with one.

I decided to do a piece called “The Ballpark.” It was my favorite place to go when I lived in Georgia.  I played softball for three years before we moved to Kentucky.  Close by was the public swimming pool which was also where I loved to go most of the time in the summer.  I chose to write about the ballpark, because I was able to come up with more description using the five senses…I think.  😉  I probably won’t share it here since it is an assignment, and I’m not sure about whether we are allowed to put our assignments on a blog.  Perhaps I should find out.

Here’s another doodle I did last night experimenting with yellows and greens.  You may have to shield your eyes for this one; it’s too bright for me.  I could lift some yellow out, but it’s just a doodle, so it’s staying the way it is.

 

Bright Sea Turtle

 

Tomorrow I will post another 5×7 Sea Turtle I did, but I probably won’t be getting cards made from it.  I don’t really care much for the color, but I would love to know what you think!  I honestly don’t think it would be one that could sell.  Until then…

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

“Bank” the Thai Sea Turtle

Hello Friends!  

Meet Bank, the green sea turtle who lives in Thailand!

 

A photo of Bank taken four days before her surgery, her belly filled with nearly 1,000 coins.

When my husband told me the story of Bank, the green sea turtle, all I could do was shake my head.  Fortunately, her story seems to be having a happy turnout.  This is just one of the crazy, almost tragic, things that people can do to sea turtles, harming them without thinking.

There are more photos in the story that you can see of this beautiful green sea turtle, Bank.  Once you read this, you’ll understand her nickname.  Hopefully you haven’t heard it yet.  I couldn’t get the link to go to the Yahoo news page directly, so you’ll have to go to my art page on Facebook and then click on the link there.  Sorry about that!  It is a short article, though.  Please go check it out.  Tell me what you think!

Here’s her story:

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

P. S. If you ever see a sea turtle in a pool anywhere…please don’t toss it a coin!!!
