My Sea Turtle Painting "Coming Home" is chosen for cover of the Emerald Coast In Room Concierge Book https://www.destinflart.com/blog/2016/5/my-sea-turtle-painting-makes-the-cover-of-the-emerald-coast-in-room-concierge-book My "Coming Home" Sea Turtle Watercolor was just chosen for the 2016 -2017 Cover of the Emerald Coast In Room Concierge Book that is placed in all the condo and hotel rooms in the area.

I was so thrilled to have my work on such a great book! "It was shocking to see it, I am so happy." The book reaches thousands of guests year round in their rooms and homes. I hope my art helps to promote the great beaches and tourism our area has to offer and at the same time reminding others of the great natural beauty we have been given to care for. Our sea life is so important. "What a great honor".

The original has been sold but we can get prints, cards and a variety of art products that feaure the "Happy Sea Turtle" including canvas gallery wraps, matted prints and even metal art and glass cutting boards! Order something from my art today!
