When you slump, feel beaten down, or have hit a wall and need more vibrancy and vitality in your experiences – contemplate upon the power of the Peacock.

The Peacock can help renew your vision when your spiritual path has become clouded, distracted and you’ve found yourself faking a happiness – here we need to take a step back, to invite a fresh breath into our walk of faith and in doing so, an awakening of sorts can follow, a shedding of a skin, a growth – as we move forward and dust ourselves off.

We have to know what it is to be responsible for ourselves, and never become broken or bitter. As one friend put it to me, “rejuvenate…reform and become stronger”.

I have merged my website with my existing blog – so that I am here in one place. I apologise if subscribers have received weird automated emails during my sites revamp – didn’t quite know what I was doing in all technical aspects.

I hope you like it. It is how I intend to proceed, to grow – as a creative and expressive man.

Shake ya tail feathers !! Light and LOVE

  1. Lovely piece of work my friend. Am inspired by you
    And am looking forward to your constant sharing.

  2. My dear friend David, this is such a wonderful new look of your website. I love it. You are such an great artist. I am always deeply touched by your work. I cant wait for see more of your work and creativity! Thank you for being my friend! I Love You!

  3. Love the image of Peacock!
    A symbol of immortality, it can be the most fitting image to paint what you are amazingly saying!
    When you feel down and out, when life seems to beat you so hard, you have to remember that everything happens has always the power to renew you.
    Nothing is ever the same, as you proceed day by day along the path of your life.
    You will keep growing. As an artist, and as a man.
    And with the merge you made between your blog and your websites, it seems to us that you found the right way to make the artist and man meet, and blend in perfect harmony.
    Yeah, shake your tail feathers, spread you wings, and…fly! xxx

  4. The image is spectacular! Knowing now what the peacock feather represents makes this even more intense. Another dimension of the human spirit, the dimension of inner completeness, of continuem. The inner part of colour when the grey of the world bleaches pushes you against the wall and says “You are not an individual; you are the same.” Here is the definitive of colour coming from the soul, the person emerging to say ‘I am an individual, I am unique and I am here” The immortal soul bursting forth to fly to become one with the greatness of the Universe.

    1. Wow – Frank ! I can’t top that, you’re poetic and all I can do is say thank you. That something I have created can inspire such depth of feeling in another person, well that is truly cosmic… thank you. You read me well, you know my intent and you understand symbolic narratives – it is a pleasure to know you and thank you once again XXX

  5. Beautiful. Love the new site, very elegant with such a personal touch. Adore the whole peacock perspective, be vibrant and unique and stand out from the norm. If life gets tough, spread that tail, walk tall and put 2 fingers up to the grey and make yourself count – well that’s what I take from it anyway.
    Looks fantastic, you are fantastic and I love you! ❤❤❤xx

  6. Wow! Love the new site and progect! Your personality always shines through your work. Very elegant!

    ODE by Arthur O’Shaughnessy 1873

    We are the music makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
    And sitting by desolate streams;—
    World-losers and world-forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams:
    Yet we are the movers and shakers
    Of the world for ever, it seems.

    1. ‘For each age is a dream that is dying, Or one that is coming to birth’ !?

      Thank you for everything. I love you my darling friend – always XXX
