Peacock in the night

Paon and tree watermarked

A mysterious peacock seems to dominate this moonlit scene…the tree itself is wondering why that beautiful bird decided to rest on one of its branches. It is probably the beginning of a fairytale….

Butterfly and angel

The butterfly with its magnificent and yet short life, reminds us to enjoy the here and now.

I certainly enjoyed painting it. When I started to do the layers for the background, I saw the shape of and angel playing the trumpet appearing in the upper left hand corner. I accentuated its contour with watercolour crayons and added a few stars… Christmas is in the air !

 

Blue green Dragonfly

Blue Libellulewatermarked

Dragonflies start to grow in water and then move into the air and fly. I like very much the symbolism of this insect .It represents metamorphosis and transformation. It could symbolise changes needed in our life in order to reach our full potential.  On the more mundane level, I used watercolours and inks to achieve the shimmering aspect on the wings and body. The change here is about using mixed media and not just watercolour…the start of a new adventure.
