Blasé Blue

This was at the start of my peacock obsession...

Blasé Blue 36 X 48 Mixed Media - DONATED

It was a group effort; My daughter's 1st grade class had an art auction, in which each class was supposed to donate something. Her teachers asked me to work with the kids to create something, and this is what we came up with. 

I had the children make the "eyes" of the tail feathers for me. I instructed them on how to paint their eyes, but I let them do it on their own and didn't alter their work.

We were all really proud of the finished product. I hated to see it go... But I did receive an incredibly sweet email from the winning bidder at the art auction. 

It was an amazing & humbling experience, and I would love to do something like this again in the future!
