This abstract painting was inspired by my love of tapestry and Mexican tiles. I love the way it looks like a collection of fabric pieces or an old wall hanging tapestry. Like a quilt. Very colourful and interesting piece! The peacock is possibly the most beautiful creature of the animal kingdom. Its unique shade of bright blue and the colorful feathers that adorn its tail make the peacock a beloved bird in many cultures. When the peacock displays its tail, it looks like hundreds of eyes are watching. Because of this, the peacock has been associated to the all seeing eye, or the eye that sees all actions and all people, meaning that nothing escapes the universal justice.
I have been selling my original art online since October of 2008. My art took a side line for eleven years, now I am back in it full force. After studying art in my early 20's I went on to sell it at a custom picture framing store and gallery. I was the owner/operator for eleven years but when my family expanded to six children, four of my own and two step children, I decided to concentrate on my own art and spend my time at home. Years of running a successful brick and mortar business with at least one to two children running around the store with me has helped shape my multi tasking talents!
I started that business when I was only 24 and made it a success, now I am putting that same ambition into shaping myself as a professional self represented artist. While I do have a few paintings showing in a gallery I find it more viable to try and find my niche online while surrounding myself with my family.
