O'Leary Cowgirl Theresa

Theresa is the extrovert, the one on the go, the one who loves to talk and the one the boys always chased after.


The lads loved Theresa and she knew it. Even after she dumped a boy, the boy would come over to the house to watch telly with The Parents.


These gormless idiots would hang around the house for years hoping that she would give them a second chance. Theresa was such a nice girl though, that none of the boys got angry at her and they remain as friends to this day. The constant parade of boys throughout her young life was a source of amusement and aggravation for the rest of us.

This is a figure from Reaper Miniatures,  it is 25mm and was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

This is the first of the O'Leary Cowgirls based on myself and my little sisters, which were won by Monty in my Giveaway.

It's Wednesday folks and we're halfway through the week. The transmission has just gone out of my car, so it looks like I'm walking to the weekend. Hope you all have a ride. I know I don't.

  5. Yeeeehaww!

    Lovely work on the shirt and even better on the denim :)

    psst - best not mention how she put her bullwhip skills to use to earn a crust that time she moved to the big city though ;)

    1. I would have told that story but she would kill me. I picked the figure with the whip for her for a reason :)

  6. Great painting Anne, I like this one better than the last ones you posted. There's some great shading on the belt. Keep 'em coming!!!

    1. These Cowgirls show an improvement for me I think. I've spent hours and hours studying other peoples work and reading theory and it's paying off finally.

  7. Theresa...as I already said...is one of my preferred names ;-)

    And surely a strong and womanly girl...

    Nice painting work and I like the warm yellow shirt...with her decolleté, a fashion must ;-)

    This weekend no trip and no ride...I' ll watch the start of the 95th edition of the "Giro d' Italia" since the start line is at 400m from my sister' s home...this is the link to the race...

  13. She is exquisite, but all the boys already knew that! I love your highlights and all the little flourishes, like the dimples on the whip. Speaking of the whip, I lol'd to Tamsin's comment.

    1. Them models I picked do represent each one of the us in some way. Theresa has the whip because she can corral the boys. She needed a whip just to fend them off.

    Sorry about the transmission. Ouch.

    1. $1,500.00 worth of ouch too. And we don't have a second car either. I'm hoofing it for a while it seems.

  15. My guess is Theresa shunned the boys and chased the girls herself.
    Sorry to hear about the transmission, that's awful.

    1. She didn't shun the boys, she just went through them like a scythe through a wheat field.

    1. The price to fix the tranny is more than what we paid for the car. Not sure if we should buy another junker or fix this one. My brother in law is looking for a cheap junker that runs for us right now.

      All of us sisters look alike except for Leilon. And we pretty much look like this too.

      Delete
    2. Yeah that is when I tossed my last one away, was gonna cost $5000 to fix. Pfft to that, junked it and got a new one.

      Delete
    3. We're looking for another beater. I won't finance a car as that's just tossing money down the toilet. We'll find a cheap beater than will get us where we need to go. We always do.

  21. She's terrific! I love that word "gormless" -- not entirely sure what it means, but I'm guessing it's not flattering.

    1. The easiest translation for gormless would be stupid. Nice boys, but stupid.

  22. Well, if you dress like your gal there when you head down the street, you won't be walking for long. Who needs a car when they've got cleavage? :P

    And, yeah, love that word "gormless."

    1. It didn't matter how the child dressed. There was something about those eyes of her and we often wondered if she didn't give off some sort of potent pheromone.

  23. oh, my, sorry to hear about the car, darling, will you manage to fix it? I don't have a car, so I've always lived without it, but I know it's virtually impossible to live without it in USA. Can you borrow a horse from someone? :)

    Theresa is no Mother Theresa judging from her looks :)

    1. Every body in the States has two or more cars. Each person living in a house has their own vehicle. But not us, we can't afford the extravagance. The Hubby's parents are in the middle of moving to another State so we're in a bit of a pickle.

  24. Great work Anne. Every piece that you post just seems to be getting better and better! You definitely caught the right look for denim and I love the faded tones on all the cloth.

  30. I'm so sorry to hear about the car problems, Anne. I hope and pray it can be a cheap fix?????

    I thought this figure might be you? You seem like someone who would be nice to a guy after you broke up with him.

    Another fine job of painting. I love what you did with the base too.

    1. The price tag on the tranny is $1,500.00. They won't have time to start work on it till next Thursday so in the meantime we're looking for a cheap beater.

      I'm going to be the last figure up and my figure is very different from these. Less sexy, more deadly.

      Delete
    2. I bet you can find a cheaper vehicle for that kind of cash. I'm so sorry you're going through this, Anne. Grrrr!!!!

      I love you're making your figure deadlier. Kind of like the bunny. Adorable but a bit intimidating too. I know I wouldn't mess with it!

  32. I know how that goes. A few years ago, our van blew up while I was driving it. On the way to the repair shop of all things. In fact, it burned up in the parking lot of the Sears auto center.

  34. Very good job with the shading and highlighting. I also really like the base. Well done all around.
    Good luck with the car, vehicle problems are a PITA.

  35. Ooo she's a bad girl... why is that always attractive? I need to set new standards.

  36. Great job on a nice figure. I'd also like to say that the basing looks really good as well.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I can see why all the boys fell in love with her, and why that would get easily annoying. very good work on the figure once more the painting is excellent. lets see the rest of the O'Leary cowgirls, I am sure the final once is the most important of them all. (read the earlier comment)

    sorry about the car, bit, a big bit, of a pain, but I guess that we can't always rely on cars. I hope it gets fixed soon enough and is fixed at a reasonable price.
