Sleepy Sundays: Jellies

Jellies © 2018 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

Have you ever seen a jellyfish in its natural habitat? Ever been stung by one? (I hear it’s quite painful.)

Many moons ago, when I was just a teensy little daydreamer, there came the realization that I was very much drawn to the water. The ocean has always been a place where I find a deep calm and a strange sense of belonging. Maybe it’s the fact that my zodiac is a water sign. Perhaps, it has something to do with a past life. Whatever the case may be, I’m still fascinated by all of its mystery to this day.

This artwork was inspired by a day at the beach where I scooped up a jellyfish in my hands just to get a closer look at the details. I was careful to keep the intruiging little friend still submerged in the water. Surprisingly, I was not stung. Seconds later though, my cousin, however, was—right in the butt.

What kinds of creatures have you met at the beach?

Have a relaxing Sunday, loves! Some exciting things coming up!

    1. They are! I’ve seen a few different kinds, but the most jaw-dropping ones to me are the ones we can’t access – the ones in the deep ocean. The ones scientists say are technically immortal. They are these crazy neon colors. Every time there’s some sort of nature program on TV or the internet about the deep ocean, I’m glued!
