Blue Bird

Bronze sculpture of seated young lady holding a large cowgirl hat with a ruffled skirt, wearing Blue Bird cowgirl boots, by John Bennett, Texas State Artist 2010.

Blue Bird gets her name from the pattern of her boots, similar to Gene Autry’s. I used photos of Maude Fealy for the face. She was a stage actress from the early 1900’s. Her clothes are from a Marrika Nakk outfit that I borrowed from a shop owner friend.
