This Artist Reimagined Iconic Western Movies With Female Cowboys and the Result Is Pretty Badass


In her projects, painter Felice House often likes to go against the mainstream portrayal of women. Frustrated by the fact that the Western genre is dominated by male heroes, she decided to take some of the famous cowboys from classic movies and turn them into powerful female characters.

Bright Side brings you her series of paintings where women become the new heroes of iconic Western movie scenes. Cowboy hats off to Felice!
