What Brought About this Painting?
After completing 3 small paintings of sea turtles swimming earlier in the week I juggled the question of "one more?" for a few minutes then started this one. Typically, what is cuter than the baby of most animal species anyway? Hence, I felt I needed to do a baby sea turtle.

According to Wikipedia, "The seven existing species of sea turtles are the green sea turtleloggerhead sea turtleKemp's ridley sea turtleolive ridley sea turtlehawksbill sea turtleflatback sea turtle, and leatherback sea turtle." Who knew?

Interesting reading - I didn't know that the egg temperature in the nest determines what sex the baby sea turtles are, and as I understand it, sea turtles have been an endangered species for years. And baby sea turtles after hatching have to get to the sea - as fast as possible - as predators want to pick them off before they do. Wow, nature.

So this little guy is "making a break for it" on his mission to get to the sea.
