Clockwork Turtle

Clockwork Turtle - Portico Arts - Art Print by Elizabeth Legget
There is this amazing stretch of beach on O'ahu called "Turtle Beach."  Dozens of sea turtles swim right at the edge of the surf and the water is so clear, it looks like they are flying!  I went home and started drawing sea turtles.  Of course, flying sea turtles would need gears and kites because gears and kites are cool. 

(Oh, one other small story.  I was manning a booth at a convention and this charming woman came up, smiled at the print and bought four of them.  She said it reminded her of her mother.  Apparently, before she passed away she was a bit hard of hearing.  The woman's sister was trying to comfort the mother.  The sister said, "Mom, don't worry.  Your soul is eternal."  The mom's response was, "My soul is a turtle?!"  The woman at my booth said it gave them all a chuckle and a smile that they needed.  She wanted the prints to share with her family so they could remember the moment, too.)
