Try to Sea
Oil on canvas, 16 x 12″
Endangered species populations often have a very slow recovery, yet many have had a rapid decline due to human impact. In this piece I chose to encapsulate the slow movement of a sea turtle through water, and I ask humanity to ‘Try to Sea” what is happening in the oceans around us. The path of recovering our oceans and this beautiful creature is a long and slow process only made possible once everyone can Sea.
