Peacock

I have this friend, Sarah (she is totally my person and has the best food blog EVER: Daisy At Home). She and her boyfriend recently moved into a new place and they asked me to paint them a peacock. I was a little bit nervous, I mean, I started and stopped the painting like five times. I have done some larger paintings recently, but none with so much detail. And hello! It was going to hang in a friend’s home!

Finally after a few months and some better planning and then reminding myself that the detail strokes take time, I was making progress. Once the overall shape took form it was really fun adding in all the layers and layers of the feathers!

We got together last night and watched the kiddos run around before they unwrapped the canvas. I’m pretty sure they love it. It was so exciting handing off a large painting to someone, I need to get to work on the stack of large canvases sitting under my desk!

    I love it so so so much! The colors are amazing, the painting as a whole is beautiful. Now I need to figure out where to hang it. That’ll be tough. 😉 Thank you for my pretty peacock!
