Close ups...







As of April 15, 2007  I have a final total of 103 hours into Pony "X" Press. The project has been completed and 3 coats of Lascaux Acrylic Transparent Gloss varnish has been applied.  

Pony "X" Press  has more of an impact if you see it in person. The  gears. belts and chains make everything come together as I had intended.  

It will be delivered to the Saratoga Polo Fields between May 20-23,  2007.  Horses will begin to be placed throughout the city by June 1st.  Final images will be posted at that time.

...stay tuned!
