A gift for penguin friends

acrylic on wood
 I'm a bit 'bah humbug' over Valentine's Day, but it has been a lovely day for these penguins.

Hehehe, I'm with you. Something fishy about Valentine's. But that's apparently a great thing if you're a penguin!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Adorable! My goodness, I don't think I've ever seen a whale bundled up this way, but what a cool and stylish outfit! Love the penguins too, and the limited colors.

I came across your website from scbwi, you have such a beautiful textured style to your paintings, is it wood and oils?

I love your work. I have worked with acrylic on wood, but I cannot seem to keep the colors from leeching into the wood. Do you seal it first?

Thank you for posting your lovely work.

Thanks so much, everyone!

Kate- I don't seal the wood first. I use many thin layers of paint.
