Rolan- The first thing that drew my attention was the framing. I love the size of the door compared to that of the penquin. The painted background is beautiful in colors and textures, I even love where the paint has wore off. The Penquin looking up at the door as if to say, dang, locked out again, is so wonderful and symbolic. It is a marvelous work with so much appeal.
Amazing work my friend.
Have yourself a most wonderful day, take care.
