White peacock painting at the Muscular Dystrophy WA GALA 2017 / by Jacob Butler

I Had an amazing night at Muscular Dystrophy WA’s very first Gala in celebration of their 50th anniversary. It was an honour to paint at the event to help raise much needed funds to enrich the lives of Western Australians living with muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular conditions.
I painted a White Peacock. The bird possesses a genetic mutation that stunts its ability to produce the captivating colours the peacock is renowned for.
The bird's genetic flaw is the very reason for it’s striking beauty.
