No, penguins do not live with polar bears! But who knows, maybe they chased them out of Antarctica and banished them to the North Pole? This painting was another idea suggested by a colleague and although this might not have been his original vision, I find the whole idea great fun. I found separate photos and videos of bears and penguins swimming and it can be a very dynamic scene with everyone dodging and darting around but essentially going in the same direction. At the zoo, I could observe both species swimming in separate pools not 500 feet from each other. In the wild they live as much as 10,000 miles apart. - Robert Bissell
