Penguin paintings: In November of 2017, it seemed like the best of all ideas to join National Geographic for a trip to the Falkland Islands, So. Georgia and Antarctica.  I had heard enough to be excited but had no idea of the adventures that awaited. 

 

Our first stop was the Falkland Islands where we saw my soon to be favorite penguin, the Rockhopper.  These adorable and grumpy guys inspired “I Believe You Dropped Something” and “Pensive Rockhopper”

 

Next on to South Georgia Island, where hundreds of thousands of penguins, elephant seals, fur seals and countless other birds make their home.  “We Have A Weaner” was inspired by the baby elephant seals.  By baby, I mean about 400lbs of cuteness laying by my toes.  “Oakum Boy” is a baby King Penguin like the thousands I saw in the midst of the gorgeous adults.   A comical Chinstrap was my inspiration for “Stepping Out” who crossed my path on the way to Shackleton’s grave, where fur seals gave us a bit of a chase. 

 

Our last stop was Antarctica.  In this beautiful land of snow and ice sculptures, I was inspired to paint “The Long Way Home”, “Lone Penguin” and “The Mother Lode”.  All of these are Adele Penguins with the one in “The Mother Lode” having found the perfect stone to please his mate for her nest building. 

 

No doubt there will be more paintings to come and even surer yet is the belief that I will someday return to my favorite place on earth.
