Starry Peacock: a product of Art and Charity

Hadley Hutton's "Starry Peacock" is available for purchase on The Working Proof. The Working Proof is a website that combines creativity, charity, and community by simultaneously featuring artists and charities. 15% of the sale made from any print on The Working Proof is donated to the charity of the artist's choice.

"Starry Peacock" is part of a series of albino animal paintings--deers, moths, peacocks, horses, and bears--that aims to capture the majesty of the glowing creatures as they stand out in stark relief against their surroundings. They are digital archival prints on 8.5" x 11" 192gsm archival paper (image is 7" x 9"). Each print is signed and numbered by Hadley Hutton.

Because Hadley Hutton has been a long-time supporter of Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), 15% of the proceeds will be donated to support their efforts to bring quality medical care to people in crisis. She specifically chose the "Starry Peacock" print because peacocks are considered a bird of protection and safeguarding; similarly, Doctors Without Borders is an organization that protects and nurtures people.
