This painting portrays the Indochinese Green Peafowl that comes from Cambodia where its numbers are declining, and the World Pheasant Association is trying to restore them to ensure their survival. Captive breeding often takes place, hence this picture of a bird out of place in a wintery environment so far from the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. I used the ‘Honesty’ plants to emphasize the incongruous situation.
