feathers and egg botanical oil painting blue Robin's egg wild Turkey feathers

Wild Turkey Feathers & Robin's Egg
6x6 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
Reminiscent of classical botanicals, this arrangement of what I believe are two beautiful Turkey feathers and a Robin’s egg, make for a striking composition. The creamy white feather with tints of gold is silky and the brown feather is downy soft. Surprisingly, we didn’t see the usual flocks of turkeys this past season. We do always enjoy their antics as they strut and cluck up the driveway and move in waves all around the property sampling my garden and cleaning up under the bird feeders. Perhaps they’ll grace us with their presence next year....

Thank you SO much M and Amber! This was a new take on a botanical which I found so delightful that I'll no doubt be introducing more along these lines. Thanks!
