Are You Passionate about Peacocks?



I'm working on a series of illustrations for decorative throw pillows that will be offered with my fabric line. I've always been fond of peacocks so I decided to explore how they would look on a pillow front. Are you a fan of peacocks or do you think they've been overdone?




I think I'm still loving them. Picture these two colorful beauties on natural linen ground cloth covers overstuffed with feather down inserts. Hummmm...............

Have a great weekend.

Peacocks over done? Never. For some reason the appeal seems old fashioned but the reality is to me (and I know my reality is slightly different from most) what is tried and true lasts and is always in style.

Oh so beautiful!! I love peacocks. I went to the Peacock Cafe in UK, where they are wondering around the ground while you eat a la freca.
