I used a reference photo taken by Jay Stevenson of his lovely daughter Tennie. The Stevenson's live on the Pathfinder Ranch in Wheatland, WY. The cattle ranch is the real thing and the cowboys and the cowgirls that work the land and the cattle are the real thing. Their life is not an easy one but it must have many rewards running their own ranch. Seeing Tennie working the cows made for "A Painting Day".
