Tonala Tortoise

Tonala Tortoise with traditional motifs and patterns. Watercolor on paper. 11” x 8.5” (28cm x 22cm).

Backstory: I was walking in my neighborhood when I noticed what looked like a large rock moving in someone’s yard. It was a tortoise! A very friendly tortoise. It walked right up to the fence and gave me a good look. I was charmed. I had no idea tortoises could be so friendly and charismatic. My tortoise friend inspired this painting.

Sights and scenes from my 2019 trip to Maine. We spent most of our time in Camden and Rockport. 

The lovely mermaid was on the outer wall of the gift shop and restaurant at the Owls Head Lighthouse Museum complex. Credit to Christine Anderson who painted the mural. While I did take a sightseeing cruise, I was way too seasick to take any pictures. I will never be a good sailor.

Tonala Bird #1

Tonala Bird #1. Watercolor on paper. 7.5”x 9” (18cm x 23cm). 

The pottery bird model for this painting looked to me like a cockatiel but apparently cockatiels are not native to Mexico. I’m now guessing it’s a type of parrot or a Crested Caracara also known as the Mexican Eagle. Perhaps both birds will sing a beautiful song if you keep a green tree in your heart.
