Original artwork description:

The universe is conspiring with my love of donkeys. The inspiration for this piece is a donkey belonging to a new friend, and she was sweet enough to send me his photo earlier this week. Yay! Thanks, friend! Just as with Bubbles (a previous donkey, painted and sold), this piece took some time, mostly because I was enjoying having Sparky in the studio and didn't want to be finished with him. These guys are helping me learn to work multiple pieces simultaneously, and likely that's a good skill to have.

The substrate for "Sparky" is reclaimed wood of a different sort - thinner, more porous and with more wood grain. But not found by the curb this time. Nope, this was in the trash bin at the Home Depot cutting station. And the nice man let me rescue it, along with several other pieces, and take them home for free. He's created a monster now, because I will be back every week. Muwahaha.

"Sparky" - acrylic, charcoal, ink and china marker on reclaimed wood. 7" x 22" x 1". Ready to hang.

Materials used:

acrylic, charcoal, china marker and ink on reclaimed wood
