Does anyone else pick-up bird feathers when out walking about? I like to think feathers find their way on my path to let me know I am being guided and protected as I move about in my day. Anyway, I bring them home to use as tools in making marks in my paintings. I had collected a lot!
I googled the spiritual meaning of feathers, and this is what astrofame.com said: “Feathers are carriers of energy, and depending on their colors, they symbolize hope, love, balance, energy, etc. A feather is a symbol of the protection and benevolence of an angel. Finding a feather on the ground means you are sharing a privileged moment with the higher power who watches over you and guides you.
What do you know? I was kind of correct in my thinking!
Sitting on my balcony in the quiet of the morning, I saw in the distant pine tree several birds sitting up on the high branches, singing a morning song. I am sure it was for me! An idea for a way to use all those feathers I had collected entered my mind, and this is the art that came forth.
Feathers made the tree!
When deciding on a name for this painting, I thought of HunterGirl's song "Red Bird." I love this song. I borrowed the title for this painting. I hope HunterGirl doesn't mind!
