“I really wanted to paint something I’ve never painted before. I thought and thought about it and the tortoise came to mind. The picture I had in mind was a ground level painting with the tortoise and desert flowers. My search for the perfect photo led me to a spectacular photo artist Marianne Skov Jensen. Marianne took the photo of this unique Desert Tortoise and kindly granted me the use of the photo for my painting. Marianne supports the Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve whose main goal is education and preservation. Marianne donates the sale of her photos to the preserve and I hope you visit her website, I am amazed by her artistic talent.“ L. Curtin
