About the Bird Art:
The image is printed on Epson Premium Matte Paper with UltraChrome Ink; the color should last quite a long time. The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed on the back. Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print. Color may vary (based on your monitor settings).

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a King Penguin called, “Shine Your Light, I Don’t Mind.”
The title of this piece comes from a song called, “I Don’t Mind,” by Tresspassers William. Really beautiful song. I painted this after watching one of the episodes of Round Planet (silliest nature documentary series by the BBC ever produced). That, and I’ve received a bunch of requests for a penguin.
This painting took a little longer to complete than usual… I tend to work at night, and unfortunately the power kept cutting out in our neighborhood around 10:30pm 2 nights in a row! Thanks a lot, PG&E. Anywho, it’s all done now 🙂
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for December 2017.

Did you know…
“King Penguins are “serially monogamous” – they mate with only one mate per season, working with their mate to hatch the egg and care for the chick. However, unlike some other species of penguin, they’re not so likely to return to the same mate the next year – about 70% will find a new mate the following season.”
