About this Product
24" x 12" canvas. This fluid art painting is done with acrylics in blue, purple, white, and black. It's built with resin, fire glass, shells, and metallic chips. There's a bit of sparkle in the water that was added with iridescent flakes, but it doesn't translate well in a photograph. When my family and I visited the Keys, we went to a sea turtle hospital there, and I thought how awesome it would look with one of the little guys painted as though he was swimming in my reef. This artwork is HEAVY, but it's super sparkly, and it would be a wonderful addition to any art collection. It's crazy 3D.
Meet the Maker
Hi there! I'm Jo Michaels. I'm a writer, photographer, designer, artist, and baker. I started with painting, moved to photography, got a degree in graphic design (where I also took fine art classes), spent a few years writing novels and being a book designer, baked on YouTube, and have come full circle back to painting. Skills I learned along the way have come in handy with my art. I grew up in Louisiana, so you'll see art inspired by that culture often around here. ;) It's nice to meet you all, and I look forward to providing you with gorgeous artworks to enhance your living spaces.
I don't show artwork on walls using an app because it's really difficult to get the size just right AND get a quality image. I've done my best to add dimensions to the pictures so you can whip out your tape measure and go to it.
We ship sustainably, and all our packaging is either reused or has been made from recycled cardboard. You can shop with a clear conscience. :) Thank you to everyone who's been waiting for my art to hit the site. You guys are amazing!
How it’s Made
Starts with a bit of fluid art, and then several (several) layers of resin are added. Near the top layer, the turtle was painted on with acrylics.
