My Cowgirl Boots

My Cowgirl Boots, oil on birchwood veneer board, 16″ x 24.5″, 2011.

If you know me at all, you know that my most prized possession is my cowgirl boots.  About  a year ago, I gave my turquoise pair–which I wore forever and everywhere—to my daughter Phoebe, who is wearing those boots all over the Oregon coast and South America these days.  Joyce and I went out and bought these for me.  When I wear my boots I feel like nothing bad can happen to me.  Like I’m still the kick-ass urban cowgirl I once was…..just with lower heels and shorter hair these days.   I’ve  finally taken ’em off long enough to honor them in paint.

This is the final piece for the Bennington Museum show this Saturday (Not the first time I’ve exhibited something while it dries! ).  I hope to see you there on Saturday for a celebration of almost nine years of painting.
