Caracas, our beautiful city! How I miss our big mountain el Avila, that guards the city, always there for us! Caracas lays in a narrow valley surrounded by mountains, a beautiful city, now very deteriorated by the political situation.

This is a very special piece. It has a big turtle with two small ones, that are going back to the sea. It was so much fun to make this piece, make the rocks, the waves, the color of the sea, the turtles! It takes a lot of research for the right colors to use, but so much fun!

As usual the beach is one of my favorite themes. Love to work with the different blues and green colors. It was punched directly in the hoop, so it is going to be laid on a frame, just a little more interesting way!
