Washed up

The 15x30 oil painting "Washed Up" won 2nd prize in the Artist's Magazine's annual art competition in the "Animals" category and it will be featured in their December issue. This painting also was in the 2003 Arts for the Parks Top 100 National tour.
The painting depicts a beautiful Loggerhead Turtle that had washed up with the tide at Cape Hatteras National Seashore and a nearby Seagull is eyeing it longingly. The Turtle had plastic wrapped around its flippers that inhibited its ability to swim and so it drowned. A stark reminder that garbage can kill.

Peter Hall Shares his Art from the Amazon

As Peter describes his trip:
I recently returned from Aurora Expedition's 'Up the Mighty Amazon ' cruise on board Polar Pioneer which was Awesome. Have to admit I was a bit unsure about this one as the Amazon is known to kill cameras and gear with it's humidity and heat, more than threaten anyone with its wildlife. The gear and I almost came through unscathed [a few bites and scratches, that are only now fading!!!!] but the people living on the river more than made up for it.
