Our Dauphine heirs to pure royalty. Gracefully in profile with a slight smile in the corner of her mouth. Her mane is lush and full of vibrant violet and chartreuse highlights that appear to flow in the breeze. She glances at you from the corner of her eye, giving away the impression of knowing something you have yet to discover.
She sits against a dusty coral background, that is brushed over chips of dull emerald green. The chipping texture created in the background feels like a worn wallpaper crumbling in a ladies' powder room. Wisps of faded blue help balance with the emerald to not allow the coral color to overpower the background.
The overall warmth created in the painting associated with a feminine quality allowing it to become a statement piece in a ladies' room or a gift for someone special.
The Dauphine Street Horse Post is an original mixed media painting of a horse head hitching post in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Today, Horse hitch posts like our Dauphine are used to both add an old-world charm to the city and to keep cars from parking on the sidewalk.
Our image was applied to a mixed media of textured paper background, mounted to a wooden panel, then enhanced with acrylic paint, and Oil Pastels.

Print options are available for this piece in two sizes: Full-size and Half-size prints.
