Sunday Art Review: Peacocks and Palm Trees

This week's edition of The Sunday Art Review: Peacocks and Palm Trees is a seemingly unusual and unrelated combination. I thought it would be an interesting collection of colors and styles to consider. We certainly don't have peacocks native to Palm Springs, but they are as regal as the city itself is today. So take some time to review these simple pieces, and enjoy them. This first painting is quite simply titled: "Peacock", artist Trinidad Martinez.

Above: "Peacocks" at the Waldorf+Astoria, artist: unknown . It is a more refined and elegant style.

above: "Three Palms" artist unknown

The first painting by Trinidad Martinez -besides its beautiful simetry- has a certain "it" that I love! Thanks for sharing :)

I really like the first and last ones. I would love to be able to afford to buy real art and not just prints.

The Martinez peacock piece has a wonderful decorative art quality to it. Like the use of color.

I'm going to go with Palm at the Palm. Something about it just speaks to me.

We have peacocks that survive the winter up here. There was a feral living behind our house. They make the weirdest noise. I always enjoy your sunday art review.

I like the second one best-- it has a fairy land quality to it!
