Which One Are You?
Over at Pony Girl’s blog she was talking about her family and how they are all uniting under the equine umbrella. She and her family are planning a big adventure with their Ponies this summer and of course, are dressing the part of the Cowgirl. So, she mentioned that one of her cousins is picking a “Doreman Burns Cowgirl” for each in a scrapbook she’s putting together. It got me thinking, I love Doreman Burns’ watercolors of the Cowgirl. I love all the feminine yet rustic qualities and how there is a bit of mystery to go along with each girl. Then I got to thinking, which Doreman Burns cowgirl would I be if I was depicted in his paintings? I chose the one above, “South of Durango.” She looks like a good fit for me. I like the colors she’s wearing, the detail in her boots and gloves, we both have long blonde hair and we both live in the pines. She also looks like she’s a bit of a tomboy, though dressed a little feminine, she’s not too girly, not too dressed up, and looks like she’s been working outside in the dirt and dust, kinda like me. I don’t like to dress up, I like to be simple, and I like to work outside in the dirt and dust. I also like to daydream and she looks like she’s lost in a thought and enjoying the cool mountain breezes, something I enjoy too.
So, what I want to know, is which Doreman Burns cowgirl are you? If you had to choose… if you wanted to choose?
