Turkey Feather — Day 2 of 30 in 30

Here is today’s offering for day 2 of the 30 in 30 painting challenge:  a turkey feather from my sister’s house in PA.  They have occasional turkey wanderings through their yard (I’m so jealous!) and I get to benefit from their feather stash on occasion.

Any feather suggestions from you painters out there?  I’m definitely giving this another try or two….

Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a note. I enjoy hearing from you!

  1. Ooh, I love how you painted your turkey feather!! ❤ I love to experiment in different art mediums to create imaginary feathers. I like how you created the softness of the bottom of the feather which isn’t easy to do! 😊
