peacock joins the flock

The birds are multiplying.  My latest linocut is a peacock.

I couldn't resist photographing it with some peacock feathers.  It is laying on top of an old photograph in a chipped gold frame.  Something about peacocks just scream for gold to me.

Here is a close up of those tail feathers.

It is hard to tell from the photo but I used a blueish black ink.

I talk about the process here.  I might take a break from the birds for a bit and try some other subject matter.  I have a few ideas but I'll have to find my tools first.  They have gone missing which isn't a surprise when your "studio" is part of the laundry room and right off the play area.  I assume I'll find them stuffed in a shoe somewhere in the next week or so.  Wish me luck!

  1. I love the peacock! I love it's neck and how it is looking at us.

  2. How pretty, I love it! I think the whole peacock thing is beautiful too! :)

  3. Girl.... you rock! Love the blue color! If this is what you've done with birds, can't wait to see what you do next!
    Good luck finding your tools!

  4. Bautiful Teresa...just stopped by to say congrats on your win over at ddzine! You're on a the lottery girlfriend!!!

  5. Very beautiful! I love peacocks! I know what you mean about losing tools because you don't have a studio of your own. My "art studio" is currently in my dining room in my tiny little apartment. I hope you find your stuff soon!

    PS. I'm so glad I found your blog! I love finding other artists out there :)
