Turtle house, oil on canvas, 16”x20″


1 in stock


It is a giant empty turtle shell. Someone changes it into a cozy little home in the middle of woods. At the bottom there are piles of rocks to lift it above the ground. Inside the shell there is a bed, a chair, a room divider/curtain, a celling light, some food storage and some decorations.

If thinking this a little bit more serious, first of all, the outside surface of turtle shell can be solar panels so the light has its energy source. Second, the outlet on both sides can be covered by wood/bark/moss. One of them is main entrance and the other one close to bed can be ventilation and emergency exit. Should any window exist, it would be in shape of hexagon. The turtle shell is oval in general so it has more room than what shows up in the painting. Therefore, there can be a table and a shelf too.

Option 1)

This turtle house belongs to a small animal such as mouse, chipmunk or even a bird.

Option 2)

This turtle house is giant enough for one human being. It belongs to a hunter/traveler.

Who owns the turtle house is up to you. 😆

This piece was painted on Fredrix Blue label ultra smooth stretch canvas in traditional profile 3/4”. It has been varnished and carefully packaged with two same size cardboards, buffering paper, bubble wrapping paper and 4 corner protectors.

Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

Note, the painting ships unframed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
