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 frames it under Anti-Reflection UV glass for a unique and lasting original piece of art.
Dan's painting of Cinnamon Teal was chosen as the winner of the 2021 Colorado Waterfowl Stamp. Signed stamps and limited edition prints will be available.
Dan will be showing his work at the Fine Art Festival in Saratoga, Wyoming July 2-4.
