I love the idea of penguins living in the Southern Hemisphere among the ice caps and pole. Because of that great distance and position, they have a period of time where there are weeks of light and weeks of darkness. However, even in the dark, they can look up and see the stars. Format: watercolor on 100% cotton watercolor paper Signed: no Size: 5x7 Mat: none I would suggest a black mat for this one, if you decide to go in that direction, but it can also be framed as is. Painted with care by Katherine of FancyFoxSociety. She will pack it with care, as well. It will come shipped in a Tyvek bag, within a cellophane sleeve and sandwiched between cardboard, keeping your purchase safe and sound until you open it. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!
