Trail of Painted Ponies Rosie Apparooza
This work of radiant and unusual beauty was created by a New Mexico artist, Marianne Hornbuckle, nationally known for using the floral form as a means for exploring the relationships of color and value in painting. Riotous displays of multi-hued roses in bud and bloom, with not a single flower repeated, sprout from earthen hooves and thorny branch-covered legs. "I dubbed her Rosie," says Marianne, "and as she departed her first stable on a warm day in May, three real rose bushes by my studio door bloomed more profusely than any past spring." From 2004. 6" tall. Pre-owned. No box.
