Too Cute

I have been thinking of painting the little fairy penguin for a while but somehow something else jumps the queue and they have had to wait until now.

I'm glad they have been patient as with all my "make me smile" works there is always a story.

We have a small colony of these little cuties not far from where I live and I have seen them just a couple of times in the past few years but I did take some great photos of the ones at our Adelaide Zoo last year. When looking through photos I see them waddling with their feet at different angles and I immediately thought of that saying "with a hop skip and a jump" and then I knew how this would work so well for my painting. One is jumping in the air, one is skipping and the other is hopping.

Am looking forward to seeing this framed and on the studio wall.

  3. This is so cute! I love how your background sets off the white of the penguins. They look like they are having such fun!
