Shelly paint's a turtle (honu) for charity!

The Auction was Sept. 19th 2008 Shelly's Honu brought in $3,500 to the Sponsors Charity "The Three Ring Ranch" A Wildlife Sanctuary in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Once it was finished Shelly displayed it in the gallery where it was a huge hit. The Holualoa Elementary Hula Troop even stopped by to perform a dance for Shelly about a turtle swimming through the flowers, so of course Shelly could not resist letting these little flowery angels name her turtle.
