This Horse post is the sister piece to "Bourbon Street Brunch Horse". An equal compliment to bookend the beautiful fun pair. They work well as his and her gifts for your favorite lively couple or place in the entryway to welcome your guests to your cheerful festivities.
The strategic highlights were meant to enhance the flowing mane of the horse and ridged edges of the banding. The multiple colors cause the hitch to glow in a bright neon sense emulating the bright lights that illuminate Bourbon Street. The thin whitewash over the rainbow of color raises the horse off the background mimicking the subtle morning fog that creeps over the quarter streets in the early morning hours after a long evening on Bourbon.
The fine glitter detail on this painting is original to this specific horse post. Every Mardi Gras this horse post is given a glitter bath, so much so that this horse is permanently glittery!
