“During the late 1800s, the Jersey cow played a huge role in the westward movement across America. In many cases, the cow trekking along behind the Conestoga wagon was critical to the very survival of the family.” --Veryl Goodnight
In 2006, Goodnight created Country Living, a commission for Texas-based Blue Bell Creamery. In the year following the creation of this sculpture, the model for “the little country girl” grew 6 inches - leaving behind the child and beginning the journey to becoming a young woman. Goodnight captures this change in Daydreaming, as a teenager daydreams about the future instead of focusing on her chores.
