A beautiful painting. I like this perspective with the fish in the foreground. I think your vision of the turtle's shell is both fantastic and beautiful. Best of luck in the contest.

so cool and colorful. the body form and language of both fish and turtle is great. the depth is great. the details is great. the shading is great. the blend of the colors is great. the creation is balanced and eye appealing to the viewer. creative approach and great job overall.

What a wonderful piece of artwork with an equally wonderful description. At first glance I thought it was a stained glass window. A very worthy contender for the contest, well done and good luck

    Unfortunately our turtle friend didn't place in the contest, but we were in competition with some incredible artwork by some of our top artists so I don't feel too bad about it...Thanks for the great review!!

Ah, the colors are gorgeous and the way you etched in with a marker on the turtle's back. Really lovely loose acrylic work pluse the realism of the fish and the blend of the colors in the diamonds or sections.

A wonderful story and your self discovery is awesome as you enter your inner feelings perfectly into your presentation - this turtle is well created with so many colors and outstanding application with special forms and adding this tin fish makes it even more interesting and attractive
outstanding combination, fantastic harmonious use of space, nice view point and a happiness creating content
A great piece of artwork, interesting and very attractive, Kudos

This is truly beautiful!! I love the way you used the abstract colours and dragged them on the shell. So pretty, each section of the shell is its own work of ark. The bright colours, especially the blues make a great background and work nicely against the fins gold. Well done CJ!!

Oh my goodness!! This sea turtle you created is awesome ???. I love the use of vibrant colours and that textured finish of its shell portions. It's definitely a lovely entry to the contest and my best wishes for the contest
