This is an ACEO oil painting of a sea turtle in the beautiful blue green water of the Gulf of Mexico with a hint of the impending doom of brown sludge approaching. I am so very mad about this oil slick and how it is killing these beautiful animals. I am listing at least one piece of art a week that will be of these or other animals of the Gulf of Mexico who are now fighting for their lives, and I have them listed for auction with a percentage that goes to one of the organizations that are working to save them.

My heart breaks when I see those pictures of these animals all covered in oil in the Gulf of Mexico. I painted this piece with a very heavy heart. Oil, water, and sea turtles do not mix, and I am afraid for the future of these and other animals affected by the oil spill. I am making 50% this listing sale to be donated to the National Wildlife Federation, because they are making excellent efforts to save these already endangered animals, and I’m thinking that every little bit will help.
Thank you for caring about these and other animals in the wake of this devastating disaster.

50% of the sale price of this little ACEO painting will be donated to the National Wildlife Federation.
