Peacock by the sea

Peacock by the sea
This is a piece of Moranti wood decorated with recycled canvas wedges covered in images of the Peacock I saw at the Dunsborough animal farm. It makes a connection between the beauty of the colours seen in the male peacock and my love of living in the beautiful coastal Margaret River Region. The variety of patterns, colours and textures in the images I took will keep me entertained for ages.

The central feather piece is on a squashed bottle top and the hanging pieces are rolled photos of the peacock, found beads, pearls, semi-precious stones and a shell. I've added this one to the Esty shop.

Peacock blues and greens

 A visit to the Dunsborough animal farm last November with Fleur and Arabella led to the discovery of this beautiful bird. I have found endless inspiration in the colours and patterns of the male peacock and also wasted a lot of time considering the nature of beauty and beauty in nature. He wouldn't lift his tail feathers for me so another visit is definitely on the agenda.
