Where Have All The Cowgirls Gone


Here is a picture I painted in gouache on a brown grocery sack. Back in the days of the early rodeo, cowgirls were tough as old boots. They even rode bucking broncos and bulls; did everything the men did. I don't know why it didn't carry over to rodeos of today.

    One might wonder if they simply weren't smarter.
