This painting took two attempts. The artist, not being a golfer herself, had no idea the glove should be worn on the non-dominant hand. So in the first photoshoot her model was wearing a glove on her right hand, and a close friend let her know this was incorrent since the model is actually right-handed. The artist began painting anyway thinking, “Well, no one will know the model’s dominant hand.” Then one day half way through the painting, her husband remarked, “No, no, this is wrong; because the antique wooden driver you are using in the painting is a right-handed club. Thus, the glove would need to be switched to the model’s left hand after all.” After convincing her model to pose for a second session, the artist finally got it right.

This lady can rock skinny jeans and heels no matter what she’s doing. In this case, she has collected a spectacular bouquet of neon tulips. She carries a camouflage bucket symbolizing courage, and her jersey work gloves indicate that she is a hard worker. The artist was inspired by hearing the word “Slay” on a regular basis from the Gen Z’ers she knows.

This classy lady is standing tall, just as mammoth sunflowers stand above the other flowers in the garden. Equipped with the right tool to make the cut, she goes for the biggest and brightest ones in the field. Her color block dress, whimsical polka dot shoes, and short white gloves indicate an “informal” gathering lies ahead. The artist was inspired after a visit to Apple Annie’s Farm in Willcox, Arizona.

The word on the street is this lady knows how to deal with the difficulties of urban life. Even though her brightly colored red dress is symbolic of stopping, she is a fast thinker. Black and white checkered-flag shoes indicate she will cross the finish line first. The artist herself has been to a high performance racing school.

This lady keeps a set of jumper cables in her car, and she knows how to use them. She doesn’t let wearing a dress and spectator shoes stop her. This painting has a retro vibe that takes the viewer back in time, perhaps to an unfortunate day of being stranded on a roadside. It’s a good thing this confident lady knows “Red from the dead to red on the hood; black from the good and back to the hood.” The artist was inspired by this mnemonic that was taught to her long ago.

Never mind what other girls wear on the farm. This young lady is a fashion forward farmer. Like a brooding hen, she will protect her nest. The model was actually wearing the artist’s pink Doc Marten boots, but the artist chose to close in on the colorful assortment of eggs for this painting, inspired by a scarcity of eggs in the supermarket.

Using a comprehensive color palette of acrylic paint, the artist draws attention to several realistic points. With the intended main focus on the written word, this painting is meant to encourage and motivate. The title implies that in a group of metaphorical flowers, this stylish lady is someone’s favorite. She is bold, yet she is graceful as she tiptoes through the tulips.

Not your typical boxing ring attire, but this champion fighter steps into the ring whenever it’s necessary. She always fights the good fight. Her inner strength and beauty alone will usually result in a technical knockout against her opponent. Some women have seen this painting as symbolic to fighting an illness, especially breast cancer.

Ladies, start your engines! An overnight suitcase is packed, and this lady is all dressed up with somewhere to go. No matter how you interpret this painting, one thing is for sure. Like the power of fuel, this lady will light things up and get the party started. The artist was inspired when she found this old gas can in an antique store.

“A Good Catch” is the first painting in the You Go, Girl collection depicting women making a fashion statement no matter where they are. A double-entendre title implies that the subject is not only a good athlete, but an ideal partner for some lucky individual. The artist was inspired by the female softball players in her family.
