Hey ho! A lazy summer day.
Doing very little.
Hanging out. And painting a bit.
We have a tin in the kitchen.
Which all our feather finds go into.
From the woods and the park and the beach.
It’s a bit of a motley collection.
Some of them are a bit straggly.
And we’re not sure what half of them are.
But today we decided to paint with them.
Just some flowers.
And some trees.
By loading the feathers with paint.
And sweeping across the paper.
And splodging a bit.
The most lovely way to idle away an afternoon.
And have a chat.
