The painting of this giraffe was created when Joan was invited to the San Diego Zoo as a featured artist for their Garden Celebration. On the day this painting was started, a new baby giraffe was born at the Zoo. The name of the giraffe is Penelope. So, this painting of a giraffe exploring sunflowers is now called "Penelope's Friend." Joan went to the giraffe enclosure to meet the new baby giraffe on the day she was born.
