Veryl Goodnight’s own career began by sculpting horses in snow and advanced to sculpting five over life-sized bronze horses that are in a Presidential Library. Her first art shows were on the family refrigerator, but in 2016 she was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame for fifty years of portraying the American West in bronze and paint. With a grin and wink, she attributes her success to trying to be like a burro – just take small steps up the steepest trails, always trying to get to the top. More of Veryl’s work can be see in her Gallery in Mancos and on her website www.verylgoodnight.com.
