This is my dog Spencer, she is fabulous- she is basically me, but in dog form, she loves to play outside, but has no issues lounging on the couch for a marathon of 90210...... She is going to be my inspiration for my next painting- although humans, dogs, or any kind of very realistic painting is not usually my forte- I'm going to try! Plus I think her Dad aka Mr. Alex Holt would really LOVE a painting of his Spency.

A lot of thoughts went through my head while creating this piece- probably because it took so many hours! I started with a grid of circles that I made from tracing my dinner plates! Never being one to map things out I quickly noticed that my circles were slightly uneven.... but went ahead. After drawing one butterfly wing on poster board, cutting it out than tracing it 4 times on the canvas I began to create my butterflies. There are parts of this painting that are perfect reflections and balance, but there are many parts where things dont quite match up. In all areas of my art you will find vivid colors, an organic feel, and the beauty of nature which is never quite perfect.

another peacock painting..... I realized that in these past 2 paintings I have really made the piece more about the colors than the actual feathers.... so maybe in the future paintings I will give the form of the feather more attention, for now, this works.

I created this painting based on the colors of a peacock feather...... I think their colors and especially the designs in the feather are so gorgeous- this will be the first of many peacock creations. I named this piece after a street in Fort Lauderdale- it is a regular street, with houses, and even a Starbucks on the corner, but every now and then there would be a bright, colorful peacock strolling down the sidewalk.
