A blonde haired woman wearing a pink dress stands next to a pig in a muddy pigpen after a recent downpour. In one hand she carries a feed bucket in the other a drawn six-shooter. She looks at the viewer with a threatened expression. A crow standing on one of the fence posts behind them flaps its wings. Behind them storm clouds recede over rolling hills of long yellow grasses. This is another addition to my American Old West series.
Though I'm able to find a few references in historical literature, I believe my title is not actually a real word. Seeing as how as a female sheep herder is referred to as a "shepherdess", it seems only logical to call a female pig farmer a "swinderdess". I believe that technically it would be proper to refer to her using the work "swineherd" or even more proper "pig farmer", but I find those to terms to be a bit too genderless as well as mundane.
This is actually a follow up to my work "Frontier Widow". In that image, I had the principle characters with their backs to the viewer. I received a request to have them depicted facing the viewer instead...something more portaitive in nature.
