Even cowgirls get the blues...


My sister sent me a picture of her friends five year old daughter all dressed up for a visit. What I loved was the total pride that this little girl took in her miss matched sequin tank top and pink flowery skirt. But, what I truly loved, were the red cowgirl boots and the diva pose she had in the picture. I have two daughters, and this picture drew me in on so many levels. My girls love to dress up, and by the way, so does their mother. I think we all need a pair of red cowgirl boots, if not for any reason, just to remember our inner diva. I created a painting based on the picture that my sister sent me. I love nostalgia, and this may be the closest that I will ever get to a nostalgic type of painting.
