Peacock and Peahen Portraits

I have been busy painting a lot lately, and it's been great!  Here are my latest two paintings.  They are both 5x7 oil on Masonite board prepared with 4 layers of gesso

Did you know that the peacock is in the peafowl family?  The male is called a peacock, the female is a peahen and the babies are called peachicks.  This is something that I recently learned while catagorizing my Beautiful Peacock photo in my photo zazzle shop!

I have two more paintings that are just about ready to post, just have to do some final tweaking.  One is another peacock and the other is a Black Swan.
Hope your summer is Blessed,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your peacocks! I'm going to have to check out Zazzle for products using your artwork. Sounds intriguing.
