A student saw the "Lime Hunter" a week ago. I told her I thinking of some tortoise cats. I decided to paint a tortoise in the same color scheme as the "Lime Hunter", but in a more mysterious cloudy background and without a lantern. Characteristic for my tortoises is that they often have lost a scute from their tortoise shell pattern.
Apparently this big green guy is waiting for Phoebe. Maybe it's his girl friend. It seems at least he is looking forward for the things to come. Why Phoebe? Frankly just because I always loved that name. When I had a Tamagochi in 1997, I named my virtual pet Phoebe. As I only paint male cats (though sometimes refer to them as pussy), I could not direct name my cat Phoebe.
