17 out of 20

Hello and welcome,

I'm working on a painting which is loosely based on the "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" story. My story is about a wombat and twenty Fairy Penguins. The story is unfolding in my studio after a visit to Bruny Island, a short ferry ride from Kettering, Tasmania, and viewing this smallest penguin species jumping out of the water and hurrying to their nests. 

What a surprise to find a wombat in their nest!!

The north and south sections of Bruny Island are connected by a narrow section of land called 'The Neck'. This is where you can view the fairy penguins making their land visits in the evening.

17 of the 20 penguins are painted. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I finish this painting.

Thanks for visiting.

Cheers, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
