I painted this piece after hearing about a call for art from a local winery looking for paintings that represent celebration. The call said not to consider any one celebratory event, like Christmas, but that the image should represent a multitude of events. Well, I thought, huh. Tall order. What looks like a celebration that isn’t one? A peacock. The feathers and their natural arrangement kind of look like fireworks going off. That’s my take and I’m sticking to it.
