9 x 11 Acrylic on panel
I painted this fellow from a photo I took at Animal Kingdom when I was on vacation in Florida in 2010.
The tricky part about acrylic painting for me is keeping white bright and sparkling. It tends to dull and turn gray.

Two images of an Armored Carousel Horse which are typically the lead horse on Carousels. It's the horse the carousel operator counts as he passes during the ride.
This fellow is "carved" in leather, then painted with acrylics.
Leather carving and painting in acrylics are not new to me.....putting the two together was new. I usually stain tooled leather. I was pleased with the result.
I've added this image after I corrected part of the painted portion.
It was difficult to get the brightness and color right when saving the photo. The first images are closer to the actual tone.
