When Good Feathers Go Bad

Normally I would just throw this away and no one would ever see it. One of the pitfalls of working on feathers is that they are delicate and split easily. This one did that and right in the middle of the koi, so I tried to repair it but was not very successful. It may end up in the garbage as I hate imperfection in my art and feel it is wrong to sell work I am not happy with for whatever reason. It would have been picture 22 but I am not sure it should count. The feather is 5 1/2 x 2 inches.

    i really like it. and the split is not that noticeable til you point it out.

    and the word thingy is now using insanely serified letters... this is not fair.
