Proud as a Peacock
An American expression for a joyful pride is to be "proud as a peacock." I don't know if this phrase is international or not, but I am "proud as a peacock" to be the new owner of this delightful page made by Maya.
She tells me that the peacock is the national bird of India. In Maya's words, " The peacock is all embroidery, sequins and oil pastels. The tree is where I tried out something new to me. I imagine the tree is a flowering tree something like the Flame of the Forest which has large orange blossoms. For the leaves I cut out pieces from a plastic snack packet and for the flowers I used nail polish and some embroidery."
What a wonderful page! Thank you so much Maya. I will treasure it.
