Feathers?

Did you know that it was possible
to paint pictures on 
real honest-to-goodness
feathers?

Here's proof...






Sorry about the reflection of the overhead light in the glass.  We purchased this wonderful piece of local art at an outdoor show over the weekend.  We had seen her work before and regretted not having snapped up one of her pieces.  Luckily we found her again and we both fell for this one.  I think if you click on the picture you should be able to embiggen it so you can see the details better.

Wow! She must be using a very fine brush for this. Did you ask her how she did it?

This looks gorgeous but I think it is one of those things that you would have to really see in person to be able to really see the beauty and artistic work in it.

I am glad I enlarged it as I didn't realize there was a cat on top until I saw it enlarged.
