feather

Wanted to share these amazing creations by artist Julie Thompson. Visit her website: Featherlady Studio.

I began painting feathers back in 1990, purely as a means of putting to use all the broad sturdy wing feathers that my mother’s peacocks would shed. I had never seen this done before, but knowing the bonding properties of acrylic paint, I thought it was a feasable experiment. I began with simple subject matters like pictographs and still-lifes, but soon that grew to a very broad range of subject matter.
