Folksy Friday - Turtles

My latest painting is of Lily the turtle, we saw her when we were lucky enough to visit Lily beach in the Indian Ocean, They had a conservation project to protect these wonderful creatures until they were of a size to survive in the wild, Lily would still come back daily to join in the feed even though she had been released many years previously.
So I thought I would show you all the lovely turtles available on Folksy.

You can also see how I painted Lily on You tube


  1. Thank you so much for including me in this turtle fiesta.

    'Behold the turtle, he never gets anywhere unless he sticks his neck out.' Not sure who it's by but I love this quote and remind myself of it when doing something difficult, first craft fairs, classes, and speaking to new people.


  2. Your step by step is great (I looked at it yesterday. I also got slightly distraced by your nest box videos!)
    Gorgeous painting and fab turtle finds. I do like Apryl's pendant. So unusual

  3. Thanks apryl that is great quote I will have to remember that,

    Gemma, we have a new blue tit in the box and I noticed this morning there are 2 eggs, so hopefully we can find a way to record again to show you more.

  4. Your painting is stunning!!!!! And your step by step guide was amazing, thank you for giving us the opportunity to see how to create a masterpiece.

    Thank you too for including my little embroidered turtle, inspired by a wonderful artist no less.
