Tortoise ACEO (But I'm calling her "Turtle")

This is the poor neglected ACEO that I'd left waiting for color for so long. She's finished and ready for a new home.

This painting represents the story of the creation of "turtle island." A sky woman falls from the heavens to the world covered in water. The turtle offers her back for all the water animals to cover with mud from far under the seas to create a land for the sky people to dwell upon.

In this piece the unselfish tortoise rests in the warmth of the sun and watches over the Earth, now filled with the children of the sky woman. -Joyce Brandon
