We recently saw a few of our reptilian friends at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa.
This one in particular seemed glad to see us.
Such a nice smile!
These ones were lazing about on the boat launch railings. I’m guessing they were trying to get somebody to take them out on the big boats. Turtles love yachting.
These ones were having a spa day complete with mud baths and natural moss scrubs.
This one appears to be stuck.
His friend seemed to find that amusing. Turtles are like that.
This is a green sea turtle who was rescued. The blue bean bag thing is a weight pack/buoyancy device which helps her swim. She was hit by a boat and her back flippers are partially paralyzed.
This is an octopus.
This is a quickie sketch of a house in town. 4×6 inches.
This an acrylic painting of a mason jar from a lesson in the book “50 Small Paintings” by Mark Daniel Nelson, a great book for everyone from beginners to professional and all in between. 4×6 inches.
This is an acrylic of a farm near my house. 4×6 inches.
This is Sammy playing Frisbee.
This is the moon.
Because it’s time to say Good Night.
See you soon.

I love turtles. I like how they will all sit on one log too. The octopus is a cool colour. Your artwork is really good. I especially like the quick drawing of the house in town. And the moon…wish it was up right now, I’m tired.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the fun and art in this post Virginia. A little bit of everything. Nice!
