"PEACOCK II" by Kathryn Morris Trotter




"PEACOCK II"
26x48" oil on canvas
Kathryn Morris Trotter

Introducing....the newest member of the Trotter family!  If any of you have ever regretted selling a favorite masterpiece, you will appreciate the story of the peacock in my house that now stands at 48" tall.  The first one I painted was a 20x30" piece, and I reluctantly sold it to a woman who was very persistent is having it.  My first answer was, "I am sorry...the Peacock is not for sale, but thank you for your interest!"  Then a follow up email of, "if you change your mind and want to sell the peacock....!" Again, I waited a bit to get back, as I was very attached to this piece.  I felt as if I was giving him up for adoption!  So, finally with the intentions of "painting another peacock" I acquiesced and sold it to a woman who appreciated as much as I did.   Nearly a year later, this Peacock is now hanging in my den!  His attitude commands all of the attention in the room.
