“True hope is swift,

and flies

with swallow’s wings.”

— William Shakespeare

“Yesterday, a small white keel feather escaped from my goose and lodged in the bank boughs near the kitchen porch, where I spied it as I came home in the cold twilight. The minute I saw the feather, I was projected into May, knowing a barn swallow would be along to claim the prize and use it to decorate the front edge of its nest. Immediately, the December air seemed full of wings of swallows and the warmth of barns. “ — E.B. White

    1. I checked with the photographer and she was delighted that you would like to paint it. She said yes, please go ahead and paint it and that she would love to see what you do with it! 😀
