“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
The peacock is recognized as a symbol of colorful beauty. However, some cultures had their own meanings about this amazing bird:
~During the Chinese Ming Dynasty, this bird was equated with divinity and power.
~ Greco-Roman mythology stated the eyes of the peacock’s tail feathers symbolize the vault of heaven and the "eyes" of the stars
~In Hinduism, the Peacock is associated with Saraswati, a deity representing patience, kindness, compassion and knowledge.
~In the days of European chivalry, the peacock represented personal pride and loyalty.
I have used BOLD brushstrokes combined with palette knife techniques to create this original painting. The main colors used are turquoise, blue, green, copper, yellow and orange, with some hints of many other colors. Each of my works contains hidden symbols, figures, or shadows that speaks to the imagination of the viewer.

The Mosaic Series are works that are an abstracted form of impressionism. Images and concepts are broken-down to their essential elements of color, light, and emotion. The dramatic brushstrokes and vibrant colors allow the viewer to freely associate.
I believe in QUALITY. Therefore, I use only the best materials in every facet of my works:
~I created this original painting on the finest gallery-wrapped canvas stretched over a solid wood frame.
~The sides are staple-free and I paint them black, so you can hang your artwork without a frame.
~On the back, I have hand finished this work with heavy-gauge wire making it ready to hang.
~I have also applied a coat of professional grade art varnish to protect from UV and dust – and to ensure this painting will last a lifetime.
~A beautiful CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY is hand created and signed by the artist.
~We ship promptly using only the best shipping materials. We carefully hand wrap each artwork to ensure it will arrive in spectacular condition.
