This is part of a series of folk art red horses. A friend saw them and said they reminded her of a Lyle Lovett song about a pony on a boat in the ocean. I liked that concept and added the ocean!
This is painted with recycled acrylic house paint, as most of my art is. I use squirt bottles to make the lines and apply the paint. I do not mix colors, I use them as they come out of the can!
I have about 3500 songs on my ancient iPod in my studio and I decided that whatever song came on as I was finishing this painting, it would hold the key to the title for the piece.
It was perfect.
I put a clear varnish over the painting and the sides are painted black and the wire is attached and makes it ready to hang up on your wall.
