Spirit Feathers

This piece was inspired from something I saw on Pinterest.  I sketched mine on a paper-backed tea bag.  I just let my muse take me with this one.  It's 'mark making' and doodling and Zentangles, and whatever else that compelled me.  I used water color pencils, markers and Copic pens.  
I haven't mounted this on 6 x 6 paper for my tea bag art book yet.  

In looking at this picture, I just realized that the tea bag resembles suede, and that goes well with the Native American feel of this.  Feathers have a special meaning for me, and we have quite a few around here from the birds that I have helped for the last 21 years.
Me and 'Bu'
How much do feathers and those raptors mean to me??  I've had this hawk feather on my forearm since the day I turned 50, for 8 years now:

Worn loud and proud.

  3. Andie, thank you for your kind words. You can't imaging what it means to me. Actually, I feared I'd lose followers after they see my 'rebel' tatt ;)
    Again, thanks. A
