Turtle Crossing State Park Road


"Turtle Crossing State Park Road" is a 14" x 10" watercolor painting on paper, matted under glass with a brown wood frame measuring 20 inches by 16 inches. Wired and ready to hang.

My inspiration for this painting is the road I traveled frequently when living near Wisconsin's beautiful Whitewater Lake. State Park Road winds through Kettle Moraine Forest, and on this road are two trees that are intertwined as if embracing. I was enamored by this natural metaphor and looked forward to viewing it on a daily basis - biking, walking or driving by... I recorded these trees in this painting in case someday they are brought down by disease or weather.

*I gave my 15-year old grandson a summer job uploading item data to my Etsy shop. He is an aspiring writer, so one of his duties was to write his thoughts about my artwork:
✒︎ Tybo’s Tall Tales: This little turtle is crossing the road, this is because he lost a bet, and had to do the same race his cousin had to. The rabbit was a mile ahead, and the Turtle decided he would take a shortcut. The turtle's shortcut worked, his shell skimming the bottom of a car, unfortunately, the Rabbit was not so lucky. The turtle made it to the finish line, and had a nice, tasty bouquet of flowers and ferns waiting for him. He was raised above everyone's head, and for his great feat, he was named "straddle" for his quick-ish feet.
