Belvidere was selected as official image for Cheyenne Frontier Days 2016. Acrylic on panel, 20” x 40”
This was a woman who was on her way into the chute for a team roping run.
The Cheyenne Frontier Days poster has always featured a cowboy on their poster for the past 120 years. With Maura's eye and creative process, she was able to become the artist to feature a female on the cover poster. This was such a huge honor for Maura and the young cowgirls from the local area. Over 100 cowgirls lined up to get Maura's autograph as they knew they were finally being represented by a strong woman, just as all the woman in rodeo are.
