Emperor pastel

This is one of six paintings I recently added to my website. These three penguins are parading toward the field camp on the frozen Ross Sea, where I once lived for 2 1/2 months, painting the landscape. Twenty-four Emperors ambled in from the edge of the sea ice straight toward our two wooden huts. The Antarctic springtime brought soft colors in this magical place where the sun never set. The sun just dipped toward the horizon, casting golden rays among the long shadows.
