"famous horse names" and came up with several I liked:
- Fancy Pants
- and Burbank
"Fancy Pants" is the title of a movie with Bob Hope and Lucille Ball, there was a horse named Peaceful but I like the film title better.
"Burbank" - This was the name of Danny Glover's cat in the 1987 movie "Lethal Weapon." It's also a good horse name for a horse that acts like a star.
I chose Burbank, the Hollywood Horse because this horse is definitely a 'star'.
In my typical style, I took a small wooden horse and first covered it in various papers and tissues. I applied a very long black zipper to the front legs of the horse (i think this is my favorite thing on this piece, next to the shoes)
btw: The reason the shoes on the hind legs don't match is because I used the mates on an earlier piece I made titled "Old Friends".
Click on the images to take a closer look, it is very fun to see all the bits, baubles and bling this little guy has collected along the way.
UPDATE: Meet Janis, Burbank's new BFF! (8/12)
