Peacock Party Launch Party Photos

 The Coconut Grove Peacock Tour  was launched and all the finished peacocks were splendidly displayed out along the Promenade by the Shoppes of Mayfair. These photos were shot at the beginning of the first hour but the party had not quite yet started.. It was packed. Just about everyone was there.

Heather Bettner  came up with the idea of the www.coconutgrovepeacocktour.com
was Born in Coconut Grove, FL.

“Queen Of Coconut Grove“  my 2nd peacock . I was fortunate to have had a second sponsor Pat Sessions and Family for the benefit of the Village Council  inspired my vision for this imagery. He  asked me to paint  Main Hwy,  the historic  playhouse, Charles Street where the first Bahamian villagers settled in the late 1800′s , Greenstreets restaurant, Commodore Plaza down to the Post office and LuLus restaurant on the far right corner. Grovites who live here love Coconut Grove. We live outdoors and bicycle, sail and stroll our neighborhoods.. So putting the local “Peacocks” in town amongst the gardens that grow profusely here  is my way of showing how much many of  love Coconut Grove.

Coconut Grove Playhouse on the Peacock

I moved to Coconut Grove in 1979 . One of the colors I remembered that  the beautiful Playhouse  was painted was pink.
Pat Sessions and family sponsored me to paint my 2nd peacock and asked me to paint the Coconut Grove Playhouse on the Peacock. Immediately I saw the color Pink.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting that color with the yellow frangipanis and our beautiful blue skies.
