While canoeing in New Hampshire, I came across this photogenic turtle posing on a rock in the middle of a lake.  He allowed me the honor of taking several shots perched on his sunny stoop, from which I could use to paint him.  This acrylic painting is secured in a handmade wooden frame.  

Framed acrylic painting dimensions are 7.5” x 9.5”.

Threats to the painted turtle include habitat loss, road mortality, pollution and possession and trade.  In Vermont, I often see turtles attempting to cross roadways.  Luckily, I often see a motorist stop to move the turtle to the side of the road.
