Peacock Utopia is one of Kim's first paintings of 2013, and is part of the 'Beaux Reves' (beautiful dreams) series.
Here's Kim's description of this piece:
"This is a fun piece, its one of the first times I’ve included a peacock in a piece. I was really influenced by the jewel tones and pattern of the peacock’s tail. This peacock lives in a mystical world, a kind of enchanted, tropical oasis. It has this mysterious glow about it. The color palette in this piece is more of a risky one for me, its more saturated."
