Montana, the Big Sky Country - which is why the clouds are a plenty in this piece. This babe enjoys wilderness, but knows how to clean up! Below Chad is the state motto "Oro y Plato," meaning gold & silver. Both the motto and colors of this piece are pulled from the state flag. The state flower, bitterroot, creates the pattern in his tie and the lapel pin is an elk head with a shovel and pick axe forming a cross below. Both the motto and mining tools hint at MT's history and present economy surrounding coal & hard rock mining.
The 50 babes Project is a new series capturing beautiful babes (men & women) from each state. It is my love letter to the vintage postcards we all know and love.
