Pisces Artwork Inspired by the Center for Conservation

Pisces Seaturtle Artwork"Pisces", Orignal Acrylic on Canvas, 24"x36" created by Kelly Quinn

This Sea Turtle artwork is called "Pisces", inspired by the events of last year's coral spawn in the Florida Keys and celebrating the achievements of the Florida Aquarium's Center for Conservation team!

During the spawn, Blake Wheeler and I had the opportunity to learn more about the aquarium's Center for Conservation, and their research with Florida corals! Over the last few years, Florida's coral reef tract, the third-largest in the world, has been losing it's remaining stony corals to a flesh-eating disease called "Stony Coral Tissue Loss" which quite literally causes the corals to rot. Some early indicators point to the culprit being sewage leakage and general pollution from fertilizers and poisons.

To save the last of the genetically distinct Atlantic Pillar Corals native to the keys, the CFC team partnered with the Keys Marine Lab, Mote Marine Lab and the Georgia Aquarium on a mission to capture the coral spawn, possibly one of the last, and to nurture the polyps into adults in facilities called Arks at the Apollo beach CFC location!

Throughout the ensuing nights, the biologists battled storms and false spawning, but ultimately succeeded in capturing both wild spawn and lab spawn, shown here! Note, all corals were handled under a permit; The Florida Aquarium works under a permit regulated by Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary that allows them as well as the other institutions involved, to interact and safely handle corals.

To fully capture the mystery, and the impact of this event, I wanted to paint a midnight scene lit by the full moon, which is when the coral all spawn together, like a snowstorm underwater. What's interesting about corals, and even the animals like sea turtles who inhabit these environments, they actually fluoresce and glow in the dark under certain lighting!

Another connection with this "fluorescing" aspect, thanks to documentary Chasing Coral, is that corals are now known to fluoresce as a last-ditch effort to protect themselves from the sun once bleached, kind of like a  temporary sunscreen. However, the corals can only sustain this screen for so long, before they inevitably fade from fluorescing to slightly glowing, to disappearing. This movement from fluorescing to glow to disappearance is what I wanted to capture in this work with the use of the right lighting conditions.

We love The Florida Aquarium and the research they are working on with the Center for Conservation to protect our wild heritage from disappearing! Florida's coral reefs are gorgeous environments filled with lush wildlife and the fond memories spent with loved ones exploring it, and I can't imagine our home without it.

To preserve this gem for future generations to enjoy, we are donating back to The Florida Aquarium's conservation initiatives with every "Pisces" artwork that finds a new home! So you can feel awesome displaying this vivid artwork that captures the mythical nature of coral reefs, AND represents a place you're helping us to protect!

I hope you found this jump into Florida's marine research fascinating! A huge thank you to Scott Graves and Keri O'Neil for inviting us down to share this story, and to The Florida Aquarium, Center for Conservation, and Keys Marine Lab for hosting us!

As always, I want to stimulate a conversation around these important topics. Now that you've learned a bit about some of the research, what are your thoughts on coral conservation and the protection of America's Coral Reef? What are your concerns with the current state of our home and what value do you think it brings to your life? 


Thank you for reading, you're amazing! 

Cheers, Kelly

    Escort service In Atrocity

    What do you think of when you hear the word “courtesan?” Do you think of a beautiful woman, perhaps dressed in a luxurious gown, with her hair styled perfectly and a smile on her face? Or do you think of something more sinister? The truth is, the history of the courtesan is full of both luxury and atrocity. Courtesans were often highly educated women who used their wit and charms to entertain and please wealthy men. But they were also often subject to abuse, exploitation, and even violence. In this blog post, we will explore the dark side of the courtesan lifestyle. From stories of abuse to accounts of horrific working conditions, this is a side of the industry that is often hidden from view. But it’s important to know about, so that we can fight back against such injustices.

    What is a courtesan service?

    A Escort service is a professional service provided by a courtesan, typically in the form of companionship or sexual services. The term “courtesan” is often used interchangeably with “prostitute,” but there are some key differences between the two. Courtesans are usually hired for their beauty, intelligence, and charm, as well as their ability to provide an upscale, sensual experience. They are typically well-educated and well-spoken, and they often come from privileged backgrounds. This sets them apart from prostitutes, who are often seen as lower-class and less refinement.

    While courtesans may offer sexual services, this is not always the case. Many clients simply seek out their company for conversation or companionship. The relationship between a courtesan and her client is typically much more intimate than that of a prostitute and her john. Courtesans are often seen as mistresses or girlfriends, rather than simply someone to have sex with.

    If you are interested in hiring a courtesan service, it is important to do your research ahead of time. There are many reputable agencies that can connect you with the right courtesan for your needs. You should also be prepared to pay handsomely for these services; courtesans are not cheap! But if you’re looking for an unforgettable experience with a beautiful and intelligent woman, then a courtesan service may be right for you.

    The different types of courtesan services

    There are different types of Escort services, each providing its own unique set of benefits. Here are some of the most popular types of courtesan services:

    1. General Companionship: This is the most basic type of courtesan service and involves simply spending time with the client. This can be anything from going on a date to accompanying them to an event or even just sitting and talking with them. The main benefit of this service is that it provides companionship and can help make the client feel more relaxed and comfortable.

    2. Sexual Companionship: This type of courtesan service involves sexual intimacy between the courtesan and the client. This can be anything from kissing and cuddling to full-on sex. The main benefit of this service is that it can provide sexual satisfaction for the client.

    3. Intellectual Companionship: This type of courtesan service involves engaging in intellectually stimulating conversations with the client. The main benefit of this service is that it can help improve the client’s mental state and make them feel more intelligent.

    4. Emotional Support: This type of Escort service involves providing emotional support to the client. This can be anything from listening to them vent about their problems to actually helping them work through their issues. The main benefit of this service is that it can help improve the client’s emotional state and make them feel more stable.

    Pros and cons of a courtesan service

    There are many advantages to having a Escort service. Perhaps the most obvious is that it provides an escape from the violence and rape that women in war-torn countries face on a daily basis.

    In addition, a Escort service can offer protection and safety for women who are at risk of being killed or taken captive by enemy forces. It can also be used as a bargaining tool to secure release of prisoners of war or other hostages.

    However, there are also some disadvantages to operating a courtesan service. First and foremost, it is often seen as a form of exploitation, with the women involved being treated as little more than sex objects.

    Additionally, there is a risk that the courtesans will be taken advantage of by their clients, who may not treat them with respect or pay them what they are owed. There is also the potential for corruption within the system, with courtesans being used to gain favor or influence with powerful people.

    What are the benefits of a courtesan service?

    A courtesan service is a paid companionship service provided by an individual known as a courtesan. Courtesans are typically high-class, educated women who provide companionship, sexual services, and/or entertainment to wealthy clients.

    There are many benefits of hiring a courtesan service. First and foremost, you will be able to enjoy the company of a beautiful and intelligent woman. Courtesans are typically well-educated and can converse on a variety of topics, making them ideal companions for dinner parties, events, or even just a night out on the town.

    In addition to providing stimulating conversation, courtesans also offer a wide range of sexual services. Whether you’re looking for a traditional GFE (girl friend experience), something more kinky, or anything in between, your courtesan will be happy to accommodate your desires.

    Finally, courtesans are experts in the art of seduction and will go above and beyond to make sure you have an unforgettable experience. From the moment you meet your courtesan until the moment you say goodbye, she will do everything in her power to ensure you are completely satisfied.

    So if you’re looking for an amazing experience with a beautiful and intelligent woman, look no further than a courted

    How to find a reputable courtesan service

    If you are considering using a courtesan service, it is important to research the options and choose a reputable provider. Here are some tips on how to find a reputable courtesan service:

    1. Check reviews from previous clients.

    2. Make sure the service is licensed and insured.

    3. Ask for referrals from friends or family members who have used similar services.

    4. Meet with the courtesan service provider in person to discuss your specific needs and expectations.

    5. Get everything in writing, including an estimate of fees and what services will be provided.

    6. Be sure to ask about the provider’s confidentiality policy to ensure your privacy will be protected.

    Alternatives to a courtesan service

    There are a number of different ways to get the services of a courtesan without resorting to an atrocity. One way is to simply ask around. Many people know someone who knows someone who can put you in touch with a courtesan. There are also online directories that can be used to find courtesans in your area.

    Another way to find a courtesan is to go through an agency. There are a number of agencies that specialize in finding and placing courtesans with clients. Some of these agencies are more reputable than others, so it is important to do your research before selecting one.

    Finally, you can always try to find a courtesan on your own. This may be more difficult, but it is certainly possible. You can start by looking online or in the phone book for escorts or call girls in your area.


    There is no doubt that the Escort service played a role in the atrocities committed during the war. The women who were forced into this service were often treated brutally, and many of them did not survive. However, there is also evidence that some of the courtesans were able to use their position to help those who were suffering. In some cases, they were able to get information about the enemy or help prisoners escape. While it is impossible to know how many lives they saved, it is clear that the courtesan service was not always a bad thing.
