Turquoise Turtles


This painting is of my daughter and I. I am the large turtle and my daughter is the small one. We have had a falling out due to our differences. She is on a path of her own, making her journey, and whilst I respect this and am keeping my distance, I am always there watching over her to ensure she is safe even though she may not notice. The line work in the large turtle depicts my life until this point and all the things I’ve learnt, the struggles I’ve had and the good and bad experiences I’ve lived through. This is why there are more lines on my turtle than hers. Ultimately my message to my daughter is that dad will always love you and be there when you need him most.

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
