There is not a lot, in terms of great shopping, in College Station. After an afternoon of trying on the most garish cowboy hats and taking selfies, I found a few adorable shops with the most beautiful cowgirl boots, and gorgeous feathered and turquoise jewellery. A lot of the items in the boutiques have Native American or Western origins, due to the history of the area, and I love the Native American symbolism of feathers. So, for my object in the room, I chose to paint my own decorative take on the many feathers I found in the shops. This particular one symbolises freedom, for me.
