|"Dude" (Watercolor) © C. Eastwood, 2011|
The name for this painting is a bit tongue-in-cheek. A few years ago there was a certain highly successful animated movie that featured sea turtles from Australia who were prone to commenting, "Dude!" about everything. Somehow, the name stuck and, thereafter, any sea turtles that were sighted were promptly named Dude. So why would the painting be any different!
