I have an all out obsession with peacock feather. Their rich hues and exotic feel first captured my attention in the mall store World Bazar when I was a child in the 70’s. For decades I never did anything about this obsession mostly because “serious art students” should never take inspiration in anything so cliche. Perhaps someone should have told the McIntoshes and the Glasgow Four, or Edward Gory. Like these art and design heroes, I’m now flaunting my feathers.
This miniature illumination (gilt painting) is based on the photo I took of the peacock at Los Poblanos.
