I have had several artists at shows comment that they were going to “add feathers and fur” to their artwork so that they could be as successful as I am at selling art. My feelings have been hurt by these comments. I thought about their hurtful words and ruminated over the idea that the feathers and furs are what attracts people to my work. I have made many pieces that have been without feathers but many more that are adorned. I guess its my trademark. So I tried very hard not to adorn this piece with turquoise or feathers or anything else and guess what? It sold. So I proved to myself that people love my art as I create it. This little piece has boosted my confidence and helped me to continue to create new pieces as I am inspired to make them. Finally, No feathers! No Fur!
