Places in the Sun

Located near the pond in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory, Places in the Sun was inspired by Harvey’s childhood. The turtles are poised on the log as though they are about to slip into the water. The intricate detail of the decaying log demonstrates the artist’s technical capabilities.
