As of today, Alpo is officially finished and sitting crankily on my shelf.
Prophetically, around the time he was getting his final coats of sealer I ran across my original Alpo brainstorms which were tacked to the bulletin board in my old studio.
I hadn’t realized how long ago I started him- but it was at least a year if I was still in the old apartment. He took his sweet time getting done. But then, he is a pony that does things his way.
I’m very pleased with how he turned out, and it’s lovely to have him displayed in all his glory with the other finished horses. And of course, (if I can coax him into the trailer…) he’ll be attending next weekend’s show. I’ll post a few more pictures on the grey gallery page.
