'Painting' with feathers

My entry is called 'Painting' with Feathers. I sort through hundreds of feathers to find the right colors, much like a painter uses a palette to mix their colors. I also have to sort for size and shape.Only then am I able to combine these elements to "paint" my picture. I am not always sure what the final picture will look like until it is almost complete. It can be a very long process, generally about three days per flower , but the final result is generally well worth the time and effort.
