Stone Turtles 500 blog posts

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

This is my 500th blog post! And I want to talk turtles. I am still working on the details of my marble “Gymnast” and hope that you have been following along. I must admit that I am running out of energy right about now, so I hope that you will pardon me for just adding these images of one of the heads on the four-headed turtle who supports the “Gymnast.” I am having a fun time with the subtle and different textures I am carving into the stone. And it brings a smile to think of turtle lips!
