Le Fleur

This is Mary's latest painting which she calls Le Fleur which is French for The Flower. As can be seen in the picture, the painting has a lot of bright and intense color to it. She has the patience to sit for hours putting the details into the painting one at a time. She has quite a gallery of paintings accumulated. She is currently doing a peacock on glass. But she is doing it on the backside of the glass which is called reverse-glass-painting and is quite difficult to do. I think that the peacock will take her a while to complete. Last spring we had a wild peacock in our backyard each day for about a month. We got to feed it and were hoping that he would keep coming back. But then he left and went somewhere else. We could hear him from time-to-time with his raucous calls but he didn't come back. Have a great week-end and take mom out to eat for Mother's Day. Lew
