Moon Mother

Aqua oil on canvas, 36″x48″

One night as I was walking back to my mountaintop palapa along the beach in Zihuatanejo, I felt something run across the top of my foot, then another. I looked down to see dozens of baby turtles zipping their way to the ocean waters. The full moon was just rising on the horizon, and I could just see by the moonlight the turtles swimming out to sea. I envisioned this lovely moon mother sweeping them all up into her hair, and carrying them safely to their new life in the sea.
