Each year ARC Savannah and the Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary (Skidaway Island in Savannah, GA) hold a competition to choose the image for the Gray's Reef Film Festival poster. In Nov 2016 I created two paintings for this competition.Though neither of them were chosen by ARC Savannah, Chris Hines--Superintendent for State Programs at Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary--and the staff who work there, chose my paintings as their favorites, assigning them the special title of "Honor of Gray's Reef". They praised the beauty, detail and meaningful message of my paintings and so gave them a special place in the art show which accompanies the yearly film festival.
This painting carries the same important message as the first in the series: PROTECT & CHERISH Gray's Reef. At the top you see four circles with actions YOU can take to help protect the reef: (left to right)
Cutting plastic rings so they do not entrap sea life
Putting all waste in the trash bins instead of leaving it on the beach
DO NOT dispose of tropical fish in sinks or toilets
Use cloth or reusable bags instead of plastic bags
Below these images is one of the great turtles found on Gray's Reef, swimming among other flora and fauna.
PLEASE NOTE: every single coral, fish, animal or plant in the painting is taken from photos of Gray's Reef.
