I’ve been having fun painting feathers. There’s something about feathers that inspires me. Maybe it is their symbolic meaning of lightness or nesting. Or maybe flight and taking off on adventurous journeys. I just like them and I like collecting them and now I like painting them.

This is one of my small feather paintings that will be available in my mini painting sale coming up in April.

I’m also working on some minis which include 5″ x 5″ canvas paintings featuring cowgirl boots. The photo shows them in progress. I’ll be finishing them up today. These are really fun and make a nice series.
