Cowgirl VI: Looking to the Future

Good Sunday morning to you all !

We had such a wet day yesterday, that I sat at the dining table and painted in the afternoon.
I thought it would be a treat to have another in the Cowgirl Series.
If you'd like to see I-V, click Here and scroll down a little.

So, after Masking the Pain (V), our girl is getting over the break up and the pain has faded. She is looking forward to the future again.

Cowgirl VI: Looking to the Future

And in other news, Missy has had her annual check. The vet has said she's in fabulous shape for 13.5, with everything in tip top condition. There is no sign of any cancer regrowth, either.  And when the vet gave her a piece of duck as a treat, darling Missy was so delighted, she made a huge fuss of the man :) 
Here she is, once we were home :

Thanks for visiting my blog - and have a blessed Sunday all xx


  1. This cowgirl is very cute.. A reluctant cowgirl. :)

  2. She does have a cute feel to her, Prabal. :) Maybe I'll have to get her on a horse for the next one :) xx

  3. She looks great! Lovely shadows! Nice to see another cowgirl painting.
    And I'm happy to hear that Missy is in such fabulous shape!

  4. Thanks, Judy! I do like a good shadow - helps to make a strong painting :)

    And thanks on the Missy front too, we were also happy to hear that news :) xx

  5. Cowgirl definitely has some fresh optimism in her gaze. Lovely piece Pat and well done you for doing something creative while we had a bit of weather! One of the bins outside has about eight inches of water in it!
    Pets are a worry at times so very pleased to hear Missy gor a clean bill of health and a treat for being a brave girl too!

  6. Glad you think she's looking optimistic, Michael.. it was the effect I was aiming for :)

    I know, it was diabolical weather yesterday .. thank heaven for water butts, eh?

    The times that pets worry us is thankfully miniscule compared to the joy they bring. And Missy brings us such joy :) xx

  7. Hi,Pat,
    Good work! Especially a shadow, colours and background are nice. Keep up! Very happy for you and Missy ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ!! Have a wonderful Sunday.

  8. wonderful painting of the cowgirl. So good to see her looking so optimistic.
    Great news about Missy too

  9. Oh great to see the Cowgirl revisited. Great work Pat and so glad to hear that Missy has a clean bill of health which is great for her age.

  10. Yay, the cowgirl rides again! I like the limited colour range in this one, it has a very retro feel to it. Nice shadows too.

    Nice to hear that Missy is officially full of beans too (no great surprise there from me tho!)

  11. Thanks, Sadami, Ann, Dors and Sharon.

    Glad you all enjoyed the painting, and thank you all so much for the good wishes for Missy. We all appreciate it xxxx

  12. Cowgirl is a lovely piece Pat and the others too.
    Oh fun, Bibi is almost as old (13.2 years) as Missy. Good to hear that Missy is okay.

  13. Thanks Renske. Glad you like the painting.

    Good health to Bibi, too! xx
