There is a deep blue, 20x20 inch pillow in the frame. An image of the "sun" is printed on the fabric. The "sun" is formed using a fanned ruffed grouse tail, with pheasant tail feathers bursting out of the fan. Using sunlight, I develop the image of the feathers on the fabric, leaving a white negative of the feathers.
***Each pillow is slightly different because they are individually printed with the sun. The feathers leave a white negative image ranging in exposure of detail surrounded by deep blue. I arrange every feather on EACH textile piece--and develop the image on the fabric with sunlight. My artwork is inspired by the beauty of it's subject: feathers. The feathers come from ethically harvested wild birds; harvested by myself, my husband, or a close friend.
