A Peacock and Doves in a Garden by Eugene Bidau is a gorgeous 19th century painting that oozes sumptuousness and bright, spring beauty. As if the title peacock were not enough, the wisteria drips down the wall in almost overwhelmingly restful color. The daffodils on the bottom right provide a perfectly unmatched natural contrast and draw our eyes to the immaculate white doves flying playfully on the ground.
I thought this picture illustrated perfectly yesterday's O For the Wings of a Dove by Mendelssohn.
Have a restful Tuesday!
