Feathers and brushes

From Kaz in Japan

Hello! I got two feathers from you on Jan.17. Thanks a lot for them. I will try them in drawing. Thanks again.

To Kaz in Japan

I am working a feather itself into a composition. I drew with the feather in acrylic paint on the beach. Then I washed the feather in sea water. But the paint did not all wash away so the feather is stiff and has the colors of the paint on it. The feather now is a very beautiful record of the day of drawing. I'm enjoying meditating on the feather in relation to whole art experience.
