Grand Design

Conscious that I’ve wittered on a bit  in the last few blogs, today I offer you a feast for the eyes. I snapped this glorious fellow last year in Kew Gardens, Richmond. Is there anything in the world of art more beautiful?

  1. Yes that and Lewis Hamilton carving his MP4-26 around the Parabolica … Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick against Man City … Brian O’Driscoll side step … Alister Cook cover drive … have I got my posts confused?
    Lovin the work Jo!

    • Thanks Gary – I think (haven’t a clue what you’re talking about!)

  2. This would make a great picture for a bedroom or maybe a lounge x

    • Thank you, Jane. This image will be available as a limited edition print in the summer.

  3. I smile whenever I see beautiful peacocks showing off their gorgeous tail feathers…remembering an elderly, no-nonsense, thrifty farm-wife in rural Minnesota who had a flock of peafowl…just because she enjoyed watching them as she did farm chores or watching them through the window when she was washing dishes!

    • What a lovely memory, jecolorfulheart! It’s memories like this that make people live on in our hearts 🙂
