"How 'Bout Those Cowgirls?"


"How 'Bout Those Cowgirls?"
4 of 30
8" x 8"  Oil
$195.00 + $10. s/h

Often when I'm looking for a painting title I use google.  So, for this one I googled "cowgirl lyrics" and got this title from the song Kamikaze Cowgirl by Larry Joe Taylor.  

This piece is from my time painting at the Medano-Zapata Ranch in southern Colorado last June.  I have several paintings from then that will be hanging at the Colorado Springs Airport in the Ranchlands Show from January through March.  So, if you happen to be flying in or out of the Springs, please look for all of the work from all of the participating artists.

I totally agree with Linda.. there's great movement in this!

Linda, thank you so much. I think that the direction of her look and the folds and curves in the blouse create a nice movement.

Thank you Hilda. I like painting these western figures.

Linda, Thanks. Glad that you noticed it.

Thanks so much Marian.

How beautiful, Pam! I think this would be a wonderful (and hard) life for me...were I younger. Just the joy of being out in nature much of every day.

I love this cowgirl, you can see the sassiness as she sits astride her horse. What a great idea for garnering a title for work, I will have to try that as I am often at a loss..and husbands aren't too much help on that I find...ha!

Wow, Pam! I really like how you've used the colors to shape the form!!
Congrats on hanging your paintings at the airport!

Sherry, I'm with you there! I don't know how ranchers do it! Thank you.

Thank you Pattie. I've gotten lots of titles from songs and poems.

Dean, Thanks so much. Form and color do work together!
