Kroten in a Dream

Sea Turtle

This is Kroten, but is having a dream since she is not a sea-turtle in real life. In real life Kroten is a 3 year old Morph Red Ear Slider, but here, in a dream, she is a sea-turtle.

Kroten also has a blog that she shares with Kame, who is also a turtle, but not a sea turtle.

About this artwork: Watercolors and ink on 140 lb coldpress watercolor paper. Created for Kroten, who has patiently waited.

  1. Swim Kroten, swim!!! Beautiful colours you used for this Deb.

  2. Striking painting .
    thanks for the link.
    I have a year old snapper and 10+ year old red slider

    I think they dream of being sea turtles too!

    • We all want to go for a deep sea swim now and then, even it in our dreams. lol
      Kame and Kroten would love a visit from you.
      I’m glad you like it, thanks for saying so, my hero!

  3. I like the almost electric colors you used for Kroten. Very nice. I’m sure Kroten will love it, though Kame may be a bit envious!

    • This is true, but there has already been artwork done of Kame by someone else. So I thought I would even the score. 😉

      Glad you like the colors, hope Kroten likes it too….Where is she anyway? She’s the star of this show.

      Thanks for commenting, Binky!

  4. Nice piece Debs! 🙂

    God Bless!


  5. Ow my God…I just got home and check my mail and see my baby’s name in your blog title….that is beautiful!! I love it. I better wake Kroten up. Both Kame and Kroten have already asleep.

    • I am so excited I forgot to say thank you….thank you thank you thank you 🙂 xoxo

      • I’m so glad you like it. I certainly hope Kroten likes it too. She deserves a picture of her, or about, so to speak.

        Btw: I fixed that little error all through post and comments. Just between us. 😉

        I can’t hardly wait till Kroten sees it. I hope she likes it.

      • Aw, well you are so very welcome, Novroz!!
        I couldn’t bear the thought of there not being artwork of Kroten too. She is my little niece. 🙂

  6. Aunt Debbie…thank you so much, danke, arigatou xoxo

    This is a nice surprise…I look beautiful in my dream. Being yellow sea turtle would be awesome.

    • Aw, Kroten, I am so glad you like yourself in a dream. When I decided to paint you I wanted it to be special and unique just for you. Drawings and paintings as yourself can come easy, but in a dream makes is special…at least I think so.

      Be a good girl now, Kroten.

      Much love,
      Aunt Debbie xx

  7. You’ve expressed the feeling of being underwater wonderfully, Deb. Nice!

    • Thanks George, I had a few ideas how to take that approach. You’ve made me glad I choose this one.

      Thanks for commenting, George!

  8. Great! I like the enhanced shell. I also like the neck almost straining and the way it’s like Kroten is really getting into the swim. Nice background too. Could be the ocean depths or corals or could be near the shore.

  9. Very nicely done, Ms. A…
    you really have seem to have created an almost fluid feeling of motion…
    so impressive!

    This is an interesting concept, a Spider dreaming of being a Sea Turtle, now how about that for being an inventive Artist? I like it… I also like your painting Deb, as your first commenter mentioned, this one is very colourful 🙂

    Have a lovely rest of afternoon now Deb 🙂

  12. OMG I just love it!!!! Love the beautiful colors you used and just so you know… since I discovered your blog, I come very often to see all your amazing drawings and paintings!

  13. Nice one!
    I used to have four turtles. I named them Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello 😳

    • Those are wonderful name for turtles, being that they have so much design and color on them!
      I’m glad you like the painting. I had fun painting it.
