This featherpainting was donated to an auction to raise money for wildlife rehab at a vet office...it pulled some 350$. I was gleeful. So were the animals.

The quintessential National Bird of hundreds of countries around the world, alongside the peregrine falcon, given how widely distributed both species are across the northern hemisphere

Beautiful piece, I'm glad you could raise so much money for a good cause.

Airbrushed background? Is this done in acrylics I would guess? I paint on feathers myself but nothing nearly this good, outstanding!!

if you really do have a REAL golden eagle feather... and not a turkey feather painted to look like one, you and i would both need special licenses to handle them...currently, I don't/ sorry!

For these feather paintings, where do these feathers come from? Already dead animals or are they found or something?

anywho, stunning painting. I love the amount of detail.

Oh gosh.. I'm still baffled on how you paint on feathers. Are you using oil based paints? Acrylics? What ever you use, keep on painting. Your works are remarkable. It's good to see the money raised went to a really good cause.
