I have done a lot of research for the illustrations for the book of poems, Dreams of the Turtle King, and I found a video of these turtles hatching and making their way to the sea and it was awesome to watch. I would like to observe that in person someday. Today I think I will finish up two illustrations and the project. I do have others that I haven't downloaded and posted but the actual painting is nearly finished. What a learning experience this has been and so glad I said yes.  One thing I've learned from a favorite instructor, Robert Burridge, "The answer is always YES." (If you have to ask, the answer is always yes.. in such as, does this painting need more red, Yes.. do you think I need to stop, Yes..and when people ask you to do a project..say yes and figure the how out later..the answer is always, Yes..)

All of these watercolors will be for sale on my Daily Paintworks site HERE soon. They are now in Houston being professionally scanned and when they are returned, I will mat them in 14x11 mats and place in clear bags before mailing and the new owner can select a standard size frame. 

Yesterday I ordered Vistaprint postcards to give out with the book cover image of the Sea Turtle. I can't wait to get my cards and begin to pass them out. This is the cover image:
