Learned that Van Gogh got inspired by woodblock prints from Japan when making the "Starry Night" piece so it is fitting to make my own version of it in ukiyo-e esthetics. That is why the Great Wave and Starry Night resonates to me so much! The broken lines, swirls and repeated fast strokes is eminent in these two masterpieces.
So this Turtle Boy will help us remind ourselves to "Take it Slow", taking it all in, being grateful that you are alive in the moment. Ordinary everyday things are beautiful like playing, walking with your dog, eating with your family, watering your plants, cooking your meals, exercise and meditating alone, working on what you love or just driving and listening to music.
