I completed a new piece today, and it’s immediately available below as prints, cards, etc.

SPECIES NOTES

The Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) is a large freshwater turtle found throughout eastern North America. They have a reputation for being combative when confronted out of the water. They also have a long life span, with individuals recorded living to over 100 years of age.

ARTIST NOTES

The original pen and ink image was completed in early 2016 (also available), and based upon a photograph I took at Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area in northwest Ohio. The coloration was done digitally, and completed in June 2016.
