Feather in the landscape.

This piece has had a long development. It was originally part of a longer piece, now made into a pair. It is about finding a feather in the landscape, blown about on the wind. The feather is evidence of presence and a gift for the finder. At Newark Park I see many children pouncing on a colourful feather, like finding treasure. If I carry one about they look at me enviously. What a shame to lose that wonder as an adult. I hope my work on feathers will recall that curiosity.
