African penguins, classified Endangered, grow to 24–28 in. The pattern of black spots on their chests is unique for every penguin, like human fingerprints. The pink glands above their eyes are for thermoregulation; the hotter the penguin gets, the more blood is sent to these glands so it may be cooled by the surrounding air, thus making the glands pinker. Their distinctive black and white colouring is a vital form of camouflage – white for underwater predators looking upwards, and black for predators looking down onto the dark water.

Elephant, El Pindal cave

Hand-carved on slate, after the cave painting at the El Pindal cave , Spain. Thank you to Magin Berenguer, whose work on the prehistoric cave art of northern Spain gives access to the paintings and engravings of Asturian caves.  I am deeply humbled and grateful.

I apologize for the long interval between postings. The past several months have been occupied with works on paper and canvas, thus images have been posted on my main site, http://www.npaulartworks.com. Over the coming winter months I will be experimenting with glass, stone, ceramic again, so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a Happy New Year!
