Penguin Painting

Wow, its been a long time since I blogged.  Lets see if I can get back into the habit. 
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
Over Christmas, my 20 year old daughter went to California to spend time with my brother and his family.  She had a blast and took a LOT of pictures.  Of course, being such a sweetheart and supporter of my artwork, she encourages me to use her photos.  I have always wanted to do a penguin painting, but could never get a decent enough photo because of the glass being dirty or whatever at zoos.  Jessica got some great shots, and this is the first of several that I am going to do.  It's an 8x10 oil on stretched canvas, stapled on the back.  I call it Penguins.  I know, very creative title, right:? : ) 
Reference photo by Jessica Thour.

I'm not sure if I'm done fiddling with it or not.  Am anxious to start on my next one, which I already have sketched out on the canvas.  Hoping to do that today.
You have a wonderful day, and if you live where it's cold, like I do, I pray you keep warm.  Brrrrrr
