During the Westward expansion of America, many people walked alongside wagons and pack animals on the trail, with mothers often carrying their infants. They wore yards and yards of cloth—aprons, capes, shawls, long skirts, petticoats, floppy bonnets—and I had a good time sculpting the movement of fabric in this piece. I found the old bonnet in a costume shop in Santa Fe. I didn’t use models for this piece but just made them up out of my head. — Glenna Goodacre
