Jacob--New Richmond Peacock
This is my most recent painting in the New Richmond series. Jacob wanders around the town and is greatly admired but never petted! This bird is distinctly beautiful but is definitely "No Touch!"
I tried to capture his beauty in a fun way with some of the iconic structures in New Richmond: the porch of the Ross Goudy historic home and the tent where community concerts are held.
Of course, the cubist, colorful style engages the eye and adds a little humor.
More of this series is shown at the Front Street Cafe in New Richmond--a casual place for lunch or dinner right on the Ohio River.
