Original Encaustic Painting (Beeswax). 12"x16"x1.5" on cradled panel

Painted in response to a challenge by my fellow gallery artists at A New Leaf Gallery supporting our own wildlife photographer, Dan Robertson, and his recent trip to Hawaii where he encountered a beach of turtles coming ashore to nest.
