14.93 | 1993 | H: 44.5 in, width: 30 in, Frame height: 55 in, Frame width: 40.75 in | A Matter of Choice | William E. Weiss Purchase Award - 1993 Buffalo Bill Art Show | Texas artist Donna Howell-Sickles began portraying cowgirls when a friend gave her an old postcard of a waving cowgirl with a caption reading "Greetings from a real cowgirl of the old Southwest." Howell-Sickles became interested in the combination of "real" cowgirls and the fake, glamourized image. "The cowgirl has become my icon for woman in general . . ." the artist has said. | llc, in script: Donna Howell Sickles c (in a circle) 93 | The painting features a cowgirl and has representations of the phases of the moon and a feather. According to the artist, the feather is a reference to the Egyptian deity, Maat. After death your heart is weighed against her pure white feather. If they balance, you are all right. If your heart is heavier, you still have work to do. The artist placed a mythological reference with her contemporary cowgirl, noting that all of us were at one time looking for someone pure of heart. | 14.93.JPG | cowgirl | Painting | mixed media on paper | Howell-Sickles, Donna

In Games People Play, her pictographic forms describe past and present-day games of Native American people-stick games, horse racing and casino enterprises-while her earth tones and layered textures poetically convey the feeling of the rugged Western landscape. | reverse: Painted Pony Series:/games People play/(1985) | 5.00.1.jpg | 5.00.1.jpg | 5.00.1.jpg | 5.00.1.jpg | 5.00.1.jpg | 5.00.1.web.jpg | horse | Painting | mixed media on paper | Smith, Jaune Quick-to-See
