It was painted, en plein air, during the 2018 Just Plein Fun event hosted annually by the Huse-Skully Gallery on Balboa Island, CA.
This vintage, coin-operated, horse is an island landmark and has served children for many decades.
As I painted this iconic, mechanical pony, parents would slide in two quarters for their children to hop on for a gallop while recounting their memories of riding the horse when they were children.
