Sea Turtle

Hey Little Dude!

Finding Nemo, 2003. One of the best animated films of all time. I loved watching the movie with my youngest daughter and we loved the turtles.

Painting a sea turtle reminded me of watching this movie with her. It took me back to the memory of her little baby giggles during the scenes with the surfer dude turtle.

From Pencil to Painting:

“Just keep swimming”

  2. Laura Kate – One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.

    I love the colors you used on the turtle shell.
