I will ask you to take a few deep breaths, as you center yourself, breathing easily and relaxing your busy day, breathe. Imagine the ocean. A turtle glides by you, let the ocean take you and let go of your troubles, your worries, your fears. Let it take you deeper, and deeper…


Lady Pacifica and a turtle.

These are a few of the stages as the painting comes to life, it is a play on Vermeer’s 1665 masterpiece ‘girl with pearl earring’
