Pesky and Proud
This Proud Peacock is one I saw on a farm in Fremont, California. Being a city-girl, I needed to read about peacocks, and how they are good Watch-Dogs to alert a farmer when people come on his land. However, the Peacock is not welcoming to other birds. We all have challenges, don't we. Sometimes we can be Pesky and Proud too.
The artwork was first painted as a watercolor and then later I added from details by collaging over the top of the bird with painted watercolor paper.
