Charles Sims, Feather Painter

Wildlife and Indian art painted on turkey feathers

  

 Hello and thanks for stopping in.  Take your shoes off grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile.  Look around through the site and hopefully you find something that you like. Years ago I stayed with my grandparents while my parents worked.  Many days after my grandmother finished working in the fields, cooking supper, washing dishes and cleaning the house, she would grab a sheet of ruled paper and a number two pencil and draw different things around the house, including me and my grandfather.  She never had any training, but man was she good.  I learned to appreciate anyone that could draw or paint. Four years ago I saw a painted feather and marveled at it.  My wife said that I could do that.  I thought not, but she persisted and I tried it and I fell in love with painting on feathers.

 

This is one of a set of series of drawings that I did for the Elba, Alabama Chamber of Commerce.  I do these for civic groups, churches, and others for fundraising.  In blocks of 100 you can get a big discount.

This is the Elba United Methodist Church.
