The chicken coop, with all of the hens peering out to see their visitors, is the first thing you see. For a special treat, children adore going around back to visit the menagerie. This weekend, I went back to visit my favorite menagerie member, the gorgeous peacock. Mr. Peacock was hiding out under a tarp trying to stay cool in the 90+ degree heat.
I was happy to paint my Peacock Glass not having to worry about fruit spoilage, but what would it have been like to try and capture the beauty of Mr. Peacock live? I watched him pace under the shade of the tarpaulin. He lifted a leg and I pictured East Hampton painter Beth Rundquist's glorious peacock painting.
Truly an inspiration!
