Turtle Trail


Local artist JJ Graham eagerly accepted the challenge and brought the sculpture to life. “Suffice it to say I never dreamed I’d be commissioned to paint dancers inspired by the works of Degas on a sea turtle named Nadia or that I would actually enjoy the process as much as I did” he stated. “For the most part, I treated the shell and fins like an unusually shaped canvas, turned up the music and went for it. In the end I can only hope that people feel the joy and playful nature that embodied my creative process. My thanks to the Palm Coast Arts Foundation and the mysterious sponsor that gave me the opportunity to participate in this ongoing project, and I hope our community continues to support their efforts.”
