“This design began years ago, scuba diving and
snorkeling... studying colorful Coral Reefs and the fascinating
Marine Life thriving there. Sea Turtles were almost always
nearby, but I wasn't able to get really macro, detailed
photographs to do a painting. A visit to Mote Marine Laboratory
& Aquarium in Sarasota provided me with the up-close
Sea Turtles I had been hoping for, in order to get every
detail. To my surprise, the Loggerhead Turtles at Mote Marine
ended up on a recent episode of (the new version of) Mutual
of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, a TV show I loved when I was a
kid. Turtle details and hard corals were built-up with layers
of Gesso and coarse molding-paste.” -Peter R.
