Soul Song was originally going to be my 2020 body of work before I chose to do skyscapes. The body of work is meant to bring attention to migratory birds of Canada. The body of work will be a huge endeavor as the aim is to work with one rescues/sanctuaries/similar organization from each province and territory creating a large body of work based on feathers and birds and then the body of work will travel to each province and territory with proceeds going to the organizations. 

 

It originated with me picking up a Canada Goose feather from the park and then finding out about the migratory bird act which even picking up a feather from a park you can be fined as the government can't prove that is where you got it. There are many birds protected under acts like these and not many people seem to know about them.

 

This "painting" is a bit unconventional. A mold was created from a mallard feather I was temporarily able to use and then I used acrylic to fill the mold creating an abstracted image but still capturing the beautiful blues, greys, and whites and then mounted the "painting" onto paper. The feather is based on a mallard wing as they have beautiful feathers with iridescent blue on them. That blue patch is called the speculum and it's found on the secondary wing feathers of both male and female mallards.
