Edition of 9


Peacocks have always been a source of inspiration for me.

I have had a muster of peacocks since 1988, when a few chicks were gifted to me. I have loved them all, but Alexander was special. He always brought a smile to my face, greeting me as I walked out the front door or returned from a ride. He was an unbelievable study. If I got lost in my work he would make his sound as if to say, ‘Hey! I’m here.’ One summer I started a series of clay sketches, in our parking area. I moved back to assess my work and stepped on his tail, for he had silently lain down right behind me. He was so sweet, graceful, and elegant. Then there came a day when he simply wasn’t there. I believe coyotes took him. I truly miss him.
