Today I finished painting the feathers onto the eagle, all 302 of them! Now I am outlining in brown with gold highlights, and the whole eagle will be done by the end of the week. The BC Lions Society will then collect it from James Whiteside Elementary, put a protective coating on it, and return it to the school for the official unveiling on April 30.

Some people who have seen the eagle in progress think that the students are painting directly on the eagle. But no, I am the only one who has done the painting. It has been a fabulous exercise in painting techniques, as I have tried to replicate the style of a few hundred children, from age 5 to 12.

It is kind of sad that my time working at the school is coming to an end. It has been a joy having the students and staff come by every day to watch my progress, try to find their feather ideas, and give me words of encouragement.
