My cat, Jack caught another bird the other day…
I don’t like this part of having an outdoor cat! I did have to chuckle a bit when he came into the house with a feather on each ear. He was wearing the evidence!
I am hoping the bird got away but there were many feathers on the ground so I collected a few:
And using this AWESOME book:
I was able to identify them as a Mourning Dove.
I never realized there are so many different patterns in feathers until I started studying birds!
So today, I decided to play with a feather stencil I purchased awhile ago:
Sometimes, it is just FUN to play with different art mediums and color combos:
I experimented with Oil Pastels, Watersoluble Wax Pastels, Pan Pastels and Prismacolor Pencils.
I had not thought to try these mediums with a stencil! So fun to play!
Do you have a favorite?! I’d love to hear what you think! 🙂
