A snowy owl is carrying the letter. Maybe.. it's for you?^^

Hedwig is cute owl^^
I tried to refresh my memories about Harry Potter books :heart:

Painted by acrylics and tempera paints on the feather of a Greater Spotted Eagle.
Feather size 24x5 cm
Big thanks to the Help Center for the birds of prey and owls in Novgorod. They gave me this beautiful feather^^
I was waiting so long for this bird will moult <3

Wow! That is such amazing canvas style details on such a small scale, and on a difficult item also. I could only imagine the patience it must take to lay down paint on a feather. I've painted on eggs, totems, coins, ginger bread figures, and tic-tac cases, but a feather feels like it's on a whole other level of talent. And the skill of the brush work and details is nothing short of extraordinaire. Keep up the great work always. Ha ha! =D :thumbsup:

Love your fantasy pieces and starting to think about branching out myself and doing fantasy stuff everybody seems to be doing while life but very few people seem to be doing fantasy or even Wiccan stuff that is my next step
