I'm super excited about the Raptor Weekend Art of Raptors show this weekend :D It is an art show featuring nothing but raptors! So cool! I'll have a bunch of paintings and a mask there, including this little feather painting I did specially for the show.

How do you keep the feathers stuck together so they don't move? And i love the detail! how big are those feathers?

I use an acid-free PVA bookbinding glue that dries clear to glue the two feathers together.  Then I'm careful with the acrylic to keep the feather vane from separating.  These feathers are turkey tail coverts, and are maybe about 8 inches long.

Absolutly show-stopping! I desperately wish to try my hand at feather painting but have no clue where to start. This has inspired me big time, yet again... any pointers?:)

Hooray for peregrines.

I've a hunting peregrine story you might enjoy of an event that occurred above our back yard a couple of years ago. A bit too real for some of your admirers, though. I shall pass it on if you're interested
