Fun fact: #Hyacinth #Macaws are known as the gentle giants. Their beak is strong enough to crack a coconut. They’re the largest #parrot growing to almost 3.5 feet (40 inches) with an adult wingspan of almost 5 feet (60 inches). Their #feathers are my favorite to paint on, as they have the most deep, oceanic blue color. #favorite (Excuse all the hashtags in there. I ALWAYS forget to tag my work.)
Have you ever done a painting on an eagles feather of the Native American founding fathers?
I wish! In America I have no rights to be in possession of any feathers from birds of prey. I’ve been thinking about trying a human portrait on a feather for a while though. It would be an amazing challenge to execute!
Sometimes I have moments where I’m really stupid clever. I had the inspiration today on how to finish out my painting of the girl in the shower.
Found this awesome double pane glass frame with a stainless steel-ish rim. Mixed a bunch of resin and dropped that shit like rain all over the exterior glass and frame. Looks just like water drops.

Two of a kind.
Both smudging feather sets are made from naturally molted and symmetrical materials. Each blue and gold Macaw feather has a matching natural heart shape at the top. I found the two blue jay tail feathers, and matching magpie wing feathers in my yard. The cockatoo covet feathers were given to me, as were the breast feathers from a sun conure. I wrapped the quills in copper and threw in three blades of Sweetgrass. I’d love to paint a portrait on a smudging feather for anyone interested. I’ll offer some discounted pricing for the practice of their creation. Holla.
