I still have a couple more paintings in the Peacock series. I took the time off from painting them to attend a workshop with Kathleen Conover -- paintings to be posted next post. I'm very interested in the detail of the head and the crown, particularly the eyes of the peacocks. The colors are always so beautiful that I can't resist painting. The first painting is done on Yupo and so the colors stay true from the first application. This one gave me the opportunity to add my vision to what I saw in many different photos we have taken as well as others.

The second painting is one I've been waiting to paint. I really do like painting different shapes -- especially the long horizontal ones. When we were in Palos Verdes last Fall I saw this "dragon-like" bird flying across the sky while watching our Grandson's soccer game. In the B&B where we were staying they flocked to this giant tree. We came home each night too late to see them fly in but I got up early each morning and saw a few of them up in the tree and a few flew away but none were large males. I'm looking forward to our next visit because I'm determined to catch one in flight.

Impressionist painting is one of the most underrated technique in painting. Perhaps because the theme is too complicated to understood by many. But for me, I actually find this type more appealing and life- inspiring. I'm not really into art, but seeing painting makes me happy, specially if it's an impressionist painting! By the way, that painting was one of the best things I’ve seen today and I really commend you for sticking on the genre you've chosen.

Peacocks are really amazing and fascinating creatures. They are some of the rarest creatures that have walked the earth. Let us talk about their rarity here. First of all, you cannot find a peacock in most countries. I think that science explains this in a manner that I can never do. What is my point in talking about this, well, I want to tell everyone the importance of them. They are having a problem that may result into extinction, we should help fight against that.
