Once upon a time, when I lived in the small town of Railroad, PA , USA, I was across the street from a very old barn, owned by an older gentleman, Earl. This barn gave me so much painting material, since Earl had Sheep, Horses, Roosters, Chickens, and Ponies. I would often be over there with my camera, taking pictures for watercolor studies and as a result many paintings came to life, such as this one in 1992!

I used candle wax to create texture on the fence, a bit of a dry brush for details and wet on wet for the background. This was painted on Arches watercolor paper.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock

    Beautiful!! Keep up the good work!!

  • Hi Gena – thanks so much – unfortunately my watercolors are holed up in a 10×20 storage unit that is packed to the brim! However, that being said, we are probably going to try to tackle it this spring!! It would be so nice to starting again!! :)))
