Huge Oil Painting 60 x 40 inches Loggerhead Run


Brand new oil painting now available on in my ETSY Store

Run Of The Baby Loggerheads
Impressionist Oil Painting
Size : 60 x 40 x 1.75 inches
Artist: Ginette Callaway

"This painting was inspired by my many trips to Jekyll Island Georgia."

"From May through August, under cover of darkness, a silent drama is played out on Jekyll Island's beach. Female loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta-caretta) swim ashore, make their way across the sand, dig their nests and lay their eggs. Designated a threatened species by state and federal law, loggerhead sea turtles have found safe haven on Jekyll Island. Their nests, tucked among the dunes of Jekyll Island's clean, white beach, have made the island a major site for conservation and education."
