Inspired my story:
Jamie was born and raised in Montana. She grew up around horses and cowboys but she never did care for either one. Ever since Jamie was a little girl she wanted to move to New York City, wear a business suit, and make lots of money. Her parents always thought she would outgrow that ridiculous stage but she never did.
She went to school in Montana, got her degree, and then her master’s and she was ready for the move. She had a job and an apartment lined up, packed a few bags and was ready to shed her old life for something new, exciting, and glamorous.
They had a big going away party for her and lots of people cried, even Jamie, but she wasn’t deterred.
She loved New York as soon as her plane touched down. She loved the crowds, the tall buildings, and the atmosphere. It was as far away from Montana as you could get.
She met a few girls in her office and they planned an outing on Saturday to find some “wonderful cheap art” to decorate her tiny apartment. She told her new friends to be on the lookout for something abstract like Pollack.
Shuffling through the canvases she came upon a familiar scene; a cowboy and some horses. Jamie broke down and cried. She bought the painting and hung it in the hallway. It reminds her of home and where she comes from.
