I am an Artist from Northern Ireland living in the U.S. with my Husband. I wanted to create a blog to showcase my art work and things that inspire me. I named my blog Peacocks and Dragonflies because they are both beautiful. I don't think all artwork has to have a deep meaning, I think that creating a beautiful item is enough. If the reaction my artwork evokes is pleasure then I am happy.
Yummy Peanut M&Ms - can there be a tastier rainbow?
This is a close up of a cardigan that my in-laws bought me for Christmas before I was their daughter in law - all the information that they knew about me was that I liked stripes. They did a good job and this is much worn and loved.

My Set of mixing bowls, a great housewarming gift from my good friend Jess.
I once saw a complete circle Rainbow from an Airplane, it was so beautiful. Every time I see a rainbow I look for the second one. There is often a fainter rainbow above the first but the colour way is reversed Blue at the top and Red on the inside of the arc. Next time you see a rainbow check and see if you can see another.
Thank you to The Little Red Hen for coming up with Colour Week. It has been a lot of fun and has certainly been inspiring. I will definitely take part again next year. Thanks to everyone who has posted pictures on their blog it has been fun to check them all out.
