Painted Pony #5 "Tall Horses"

This one of a kind, custom painted pony was inspired by my 3rd favorite animal, the giraffe. I recently bought a bottle of wine from "Tall Horse" vineyard and I thought, this must be why I like them so much because they are nicknamed tall horses. I have painted a close-up giraffe on one side eating from the acacia tree and a cow and calf standing in the grasslands of the African plains on the other. The pony herself has been painted palomino to blend into the grasses. I have painted some grass around the dark green base. Signed, umbered, and dated. Sold to private collector.
