Mr. Peacock Original Painting

 Mr. Peacock 11x14 oil on stretched canvas
Can be found in my etsy shop.

I love how he turned out, especially the tail!   It's been done for a few days, except something was missing.  That's when I added the blue on the bottom left below his tail where it dips and the bit of green above the dip.  That tied the sky and grass in.

This is my daughter's bunny, Moe.  He lives in her room and we keep the cage door open and he has the run of the room.  We are able to do this because he is litter trained and is a good little bunny.  Before we had free range of the room, he use to dig at the carpet (not good) until I took a big Yellow Pages phone book, opened it and left it where he likes to dig.  The room is bunny proofed to keep him safe.  We leave her bedroom door open, but he stays in her room and is too scared to come out.
 It's not easy to sneak up on a bunny while they are sleeping.  But I did and managed to get a picture.  I know, it turned out a bit blurry, but I caught him sleeping!

This is the second shot I took, and as you can see he is now awake, looking at me like, "Hey, I'm sleeping here, do you mind?"
