""Like Ann Hyatt Huntington, I love the added luster that aluminum creates.

I have had a muster of peacocks since 1988 when my dear friend Charlotte sent 5 chicks home with my daughter and me on a return from Malibu. Alexander was very special and he was always there to greet me as I drove in or walked out the front door bring a smile to my face. He was an unbelievable study. One summer I started a series of sculptural scratches in our parking area. I once stepped back to look at what I was working on and stepped on his tail, for he had laid down right behind me. I truly miss him. I believe coyotes took him. He was so sweet, graceful, and elegant. "
