"Hawksbill In The Weeds" 20x20 Acrylic Painting
"In The Weeds"
A series of canvas and panel acrylic originals inspired by long days of chasing weed lines offshore in the Florida Keys.
Last year I became especially inspired by the weed lines of sargassum and all the sea life living below while we were out mahi fishing. I'd be scooping up the weeds and studying their intricate colors, shapes, and patterns. I was finding myself in the water photographing their movement in the waves, and all the fish and sea life hiding within. This collection is full of blues, greens, and golds that I felt the need to bring to life in the studio
"Hawksbill In The Weeds" is a 20x20" Acrylic Painting on wood panel. This painting comes wired and ready to hang. It has thick 2" gallery wrapped edges so no framing is needed.
The Hawksbill is one of the smaller sea turtles. They are endangered and in danger of extinction within the foreseeable future. The greatest threat to the Hawksbill is the harvesting for their prized shell. Lets all enjoy their beauty with our eyes, cameras, and artwork, instead of purchasing jewelry made of "tortoise shell".
