Another Amazing Artist~ Feather Paintings

After sorting through hundreds of permission slips, I'm just about ready to begin posting student photos and art! Out of 635 kids here at Eagle View I had over 90% respond- Way to go parents! Spring Break will allow lots of time for me to upload. In the mean time, check out this amazing artist!

Julie Thompson currently lives in Washington state but grew up in Alaska.

About 20 years ago she began painting feathers with acrylic inspired by the wildlife and scenery she experienced. She says it is a painstaking process and can take up to one week to paint one feather!

She is known as the "Featherlady"!
