Peacock watercolor painting
The idea for today’s peacock watercolor painting came to me while reminiscing about an almost magical place called “City of 10,000 Buddhas”. As I mentioned in my previous post, meditation has become part of my daily practice these days. One of the more tranquil times I’ve had since moving to the west coast was a visit to the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas – a Buddhist Community and Monastery in Ukiah, CA. The drive is there is just over an hour away, past bucolic farm scenes and vineyards, including the Francis Ford Coppola Winery.
It’s a pretty amazing place and there are peacocks all over the place, they’re pretty tame too, so I took over 100 photos and some video while I was there.
Did you know they call a group of peacocks a MUSTER?
I didn’t know that!
We have a peacock that lives here on the golf course, the sound you hear at the end of the video is a sound we hear in the spring when our resident male peacock is calling for a mate.
