'Surgalstown Danny Boy' Brown and White Pony Painting
Portrait InformationThis is the third equine painting I created for a client in Kilkenny. Danny Boy is the pony's stable name and he was the client's daughter's pony whom she rode for a while. He has a heart shaped marking on his neck and the client was keen for me to show it in the painting. I completed the painting in May 2019 at 45 x 35 cm (18 x 14 inches) in size. The painting is painted with acrylics on stretched canvas. You can find more information on the commission on my blog here.
"Hi Ivana, it’s absolutely gorgeous! You have really captured that cheeky glimpse in his eye, couldn’t be happier! …. I received the painting last week and I’m absolutely delighted! It’s gorgeous and my daughter Alice will love it! Thanks again!"
