The Peacock Symbol!

Peacock Symbolism

The peacock is a symbol of immortality because the ancients believed that the peacock had flesh that did not decay after death. As such, early Christian paintings and mosaics use peacock imagery, and peacock feathers can be used during the Easter season as church decorations. This symbol of immortality is also directly linked to Christ.

Just off the easel for May!

Well, it has not been "Hot, Hot, Hot" here in Charlotte lately, as a matter of fact it has been quite cool for the month of May, but these two paintings are titled "Hot, Hot, Hot" because of the warm colors.  Again, I tried to do two different sizes using the same color palette, one is a 36x36, and the other is a study at 12x12.  And don't forget, Mother's Day is this weekend!
