Description

The peacock's garden is a large colourful semi-abstract oil painting of a peacock in a dreamlike English landscape. The painting is art nouveau and contemporary in style and plays on the contrast between a recognizable riverbank (the river Rother) with wildflowers, trees and a cornfield and a whimsical rendering of the peacock who seems to be unravelling like thread and becoming part of his garden. The painting was inspired by a walk I took in the Burwash area of Sussex. I was walking in beautiful countryside through a meadow and then I heard a peacock which drew me over to the fence of a hidden mansion behind a small forest. I could not see the peacock but I could hear him and see a bit of his garden - hence the name. I find peacocks exotic and very beautiful and I felt like a voyeur (which I was) as I tried to get better glimpses of a river and fields and flowers beyond the garden of the mansion. The painting captures for me the feeling of seeing something lovely and mystical and completely out of my reach but I was happy to see it all the same. It is 40x40x1.5 inches on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang. https://youtu.be/Tq0Ada6bvuk
