I needed a little "me time"

I spent most of the summer in a serious study of painting fundamentals, (most of the results were not blog-worthy) and most of the fall making pottery for Margaritaville,  so Sunday I grabbed a few quiet hours in my painting studio and busted out a turtle.  I don't think I ever painted one before but it was fun and maybe a little self-indulgent.  My goal was to stay loose but not forget the fundamentals, (or rules or best practices, whatever you want to call them).

I call him Calypso, very Island-y and also the name of J. Cousteau's boat.  And I see the tutle as an explorer of the seas and this painting as an exploration of fast and loose.  He'd be perfect for a child's room or that white room that needs a pop of color.
