Anything Texas

Trail Boss
8x8, oil on panel
A charming colleague of mine who herded classes of 5- and 6-year-olds. Kindergarteners are much more challenging than cattle, as any parent or teacher would agree. It takes a pretty tough cowgirl to run roughshod on that bunch. Thanks to my new colleagues for including me in the Some Texas Artists Like to Paint group!


  1. Mitzi, this is delightful! Love the idea of this Trail Boss herding those sweet little Doggies. Well done!

  2. Nice to see the cowgirls represented here! This should be a fun blog to be involved with!

  3. In your honour and in honour of all the Illustrators and Painters, I published
    an illustration.

  4. Love your strong, graphic style. One of the things I first noticed was how the background blocks of color mimic our state flag, very well done.

    As a teacher, I am thrilled to announce that school is out and summer vacation is here!

  5. Outstanding, Mitzi! Very determined expression for the little cowpokes' Trail Boss.
