Peacock Magic Greeting Cards

 

“Peacock Magic” – Photo Greeting Cards of peacocks & a peacock painting/collage art of mine.  We all love peacock’s beauty – the magic shimmer of their feathers & the fan that is displayed when they open their tail all captivate our imagination like they are a creature from an Arabian Nights fairy tale. 

These peacock photographs were shot at the San Diego Zoo where wild peacocks walk the trails with visitors.  “Peacock Jewel Tapestry” is a Japanese brush painting with gelli prints and a watercolor background all collaged together to create layers of beauty & magic. 

These “Peacock Magic” greeting cards are perfect to use for any occasion.  The inside of the cards are blank and each card back is hand-stamped with either a dolphin or pelican motif, which has been hand-carved & printed by Nancy Lee Artist By-the-Sea.  Each card is 6 ½” x 5” with a 6” x 4” photo.  These cards could also be easily framed to give as gifts or display in your home!

A set of six cards costs $20 plus shipping & handling.  At this time, these cards are only available for purchase direct from the artist on Etsy.

Happy Spring & Vernal Equinox!

Happy Spring! Why do we call this season spring? In the 14th century it was called “springing time” because plants “spring” from the ground. It was then shortened to “spring time” and now we call it “spring”.
 
Today is the vernal equinox. The day and night are the closet to equal duration in most time zones in the world. Sunrise 6:52 a.m. and sunset 7 p.m.
