Peacocks in the Garden

This is my latest. I was quite pleased with how it came out - though the colors are brighter in person than they came out on the scan. When I started it I knew it would be green and spring-y but I did not know about the peacocks till I was a ways in.

When I look out my window right now the colors are all grey-ed down with rain. The brightest colors I can see are a couple of red cars and a yellow excavator down the street. Everything else seems grey or brown or taupe and washed out. there are some pine trees, standing like shy sentinels, but they seem to recede into the background somehow. Sometimes you have to make your own color.
