 FEATHER LOVE phase...
tickling my fancy

Earlier this year I was escaping domesticity for a day to attend a drawing workshop with a really lovely and talented, prestigious and sweet Australian female printmaker, 
We spent a few hours drawing from little natural treasures, trees, leaves, and suchlike. Amongst the beauties scattered on the table was a perfect white feather, which I promptly began sketching...
This began a bit of a feather phase, when feathers kept appearing in doodles, drawings and paintings,I began picking them up, seeking them out, and photographing them.
It seems they just tickled my fancy!
