I had started a smaller study for Penguin Zen and decided to finish it because you have to find joy wherever you can. Painting an animal does it for me.
Someone let me know the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri also invited some penguins as guests to browse their galleries during their shutdown, like the Art Institute of Chicago had. The most charming result is these penguins stopped and seemingly took in many of the works of art, much like this little guy. Claude Monet's Water Lilies spoke to him. Or her.
