Final of the Peacock


I added gold pen in a few more places and feathery touches to have the tail poof out and come forward in space. I think he's done.

Elizabeth, He is just gorgeous, and so...kingly to me! I blew up the pic so I could see the details, and I love the way you handled the background...and the trees and great...and, and, and...very nice work...You've inspired me to work in collage again! I think I've asked before, but you seem so suited...have you ever worked in wax collage? If you haven't and you're interested, e-mail me...IT'S FUN!

I think this is just wonderful - I'm all about the boots!

Jean Spitzer said...

I love this. I'm still smiling as I type. Thanks!

Uplifting piece. What fun to look at!

Terry Pitzel said...

This is so adorable. Whimsical, quirky but so right on as far as art goes. Quite an acomplishment for the subject. It is good artistically and it is fun!

Saundra, your remarks overwhelm me, and I have never heard of wax collage. I'll have to find out!

Thanks Incognito. I may be bringing him home soon to live with the rest of his mates until the show.

Jeane--boots rule--red goat ropers are the only ones I've ever owned, though, and I'm not sure they count!

Thanks so much for your comments, Jean, Cathyann and Terry! It means so much!

Elizabeth, the peacock is "GRAND" - the whole painting just works for me - love the deep blue colours and the detail - the boots rock!
