Do Not Touch (Oahu Turtle)
Piece description from the artist
'Do Not Touch (Oahu Turtle)' is a study based on a brief memory of tourists harassing sea turtles that lounge on a beach in Oahu. A velvet rope is drawn across the sand with a description of the turtle's age, size and nick name. Despite their laid back appearance, their expressions, if imagined, would be one of annoyance when snorkeling folk grab their flippers as they swim to use as a personalized trolley system. Original work is slightly different from the printed out version with a layer of acrylic glaze poured on top of panel. This print is customized to look better on a screen and on a flat, untextured surface, hence the modifications.
