Feathers Earned


I am completely fascinated by feathers: their meaning throughout humanities great wealth of lore and traditions; their meaning especially to North American Nations.  This is a feather that you earn – it was explained to me that to be given a feather by an elder is a mark of respect.  It made me think of the De Vinci landscapes and floating there in their midst is this awe inspiring FEATHER.  Deep, textured and with a multi-layered color palate that bleeds, dances and runs into each other.

The centre of the feather is a spine – you can run your fingers down each vertebrae.  For me, this is the meaning of ‘backbone’ – we hold ourselves in face of the storm with a strong straight back and a determination born of hardship.  Feathers to be Earned.
