This painting was the very first wherein I discovered my  collage possibilities.  Why I thought of tissue paper, rather than tracing paper (which would not have succeeded), I cannot recall.  I do remember that the "printed" feather was an artifact of my visit with Susan Crawford, one of my dear friend artists, who used a feather in several of her monoprints.  This exact same feather appears in Winter Holds the Wind Dear...the first painting I did after seeing Susan's work.
