Great Blue Heron Feather Art
This lovely Great Blue Heron is hand painted using a mix of acrylic and oil-based paints on actual feather.
The bird feather is a complex and beautiful work of nature featuring alluring colors and patterns, often with hidden iridescent hues that shine in the light. Amazingly, artists from Central America have mastered a technique to use bird feathers as a canvas for their paintings.
All feathers are humanely gathered from birds who have molted, and feathers are sourced from the farms and forest floors in Central America. Primarily from turkeys and chickens, the feathers seldom represent the bird that is depicted because of range limitations and access to feathers that comply with law and animal welfare practices.
The final product is a unique work of art that combines nature’s own beauty with the creativity and delicate workmanship of the artist. Perfect for nature lovers, bird enthusiasts, or anyone who appreciates handmade creations that are unique, finely crafted, and evoke curiosity and wonderment. Framed dimensions are 7.5” x 4.5”.
