‘The Zebra Riddle’ 8″ x 6″ Acrylics on Stretched Canvas

After finishing this gal, (she is one of the Grevy zebra mares at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo) I had to take a break from painting all of her stripes. The painting went nameless for a week. Very unusual for me since I have a name in mind when I start to sketch the artwork.

Originally, all that popped into my head was an old AC/DC song. The nameless mare became sort of an enigma. A zebra riddle. Hence the name.

Above are a different views to show how the sides are painted. ‘The Zebra Riddle’ is painted on a 8″ x 6″ x 3/4″ wrap around stretched canvas. It comes ready to hang, using framing wire and eye screws, just hang on the wall and enjoy!

‘The Zebra Riddle’ is available for purchase at my Daily Paint Works Gallery: http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/291256

Time to get back to work. Keep warm! ~ Kim
