So like everyone else in the world, i was terribly moved by March of the Penguins, and the durabilty and strength of these awkward creatures!  So i've had penguins on the brain for awhile now, and i got this silly idea to create a painting with the theme: The Freedom & Ecstacy of the Penguin  Much like the beloved red-hooded sweatshirt song by Adam Sandler, this little penguin has his red winged hang-glider.  I used felt, a scrap of fabric for the cloud, acrylics and some gel medium for texture, and part of a paper clip for the handle on the hang-glider.  i really loved how it turned out, it reminds me of a children's book illustration, so i had to frame it and now it adorns my kitchen wall!

Just wanted to share some humor!  Grin

OMG I love it!! Those glaciers look impressive and the penguins look like they're made from felt. So cute! I want one. =)

I just saw that on the photo gallery site when I uploaded some photos.  I was going to PM you and tell you how much I liked it--so I'll do it here, instead.  Nice work!  Did you paint the glacier?

That is fantastic. I really like it. I really like penguins...! I would love stuff like that to put on the walls at mine, but I can't draw or paint to save my life.

wow! thanks everyone! and here i thought i was being sillly for even hanging it in my kitchen...hehe.  Yes, I painted the background glaciers, and TRUST ME, anyone can do it, i possess, ZERO painting skills!  I'm thinking it might be the start of a series of these...i have lots of other ideas for animals who can't do certain things......like a slug on a roller skate or something..hehe.  Thanks for all the nice comments everyone!

SO cute! I love the way the other penguins are watching in amazement.  "Now where did he get that hang-glider..." Cheesy
