Dan began painting on wild Turkey feathers several years ago and they have become a unique and popular piece of original art. Dan begins by collecting wild Turkey feathers through several sources. Usually these are from Merriam Turkeys, but he also has used feathers from Eastern Turkeys which are a slighty different color. Then he paints an undercoat of white gesso on the feather where the painting will be. This helps to seal the feather together. Dan then paints the wildlife subject using acrylic paints. Once the painting is done Dan mounts the feather on a black suede mat board and then frames it under glass for a unique and lasting original piece of art.
Dan won 1st place in the painting category at the Art Fest in Castle Rock, CO.
Recently completed 2 commissioned mural paintings.
