Little fact o . . . Did you know that US Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was a cowgirl at heart? In 2002 Justice O’Connor was inducted as a Cowgirl Honoree at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. She was born in El Paso, Texas growing up on her family’s cattle ranch (yes, she can ride and shoot). If you would like to learn more here is the link to the museum and write-up on Justice O’Connor http://www.cowgirl.net/?s=sandra.
Living in Texas it’s not unusual to see cowgirls, beautiful gals they are who look every bit the part, from their hats to boots, and they love their trucks! I saw one such young lady the other day and thought I’d give a quick go at capturing what I imagined she must look like after working a long winter day at the ranch.
Trail Blazer (8×5) is a simple charcoal sketch of the young lady I imagined. Here’s to all those cowgirls out there ~
