The Trail of Painted Ponies "Apple-oosa," 2E/9,613.
Writes the artist, "This Pony has a patriotic theme without the usual red, white and blue, stars-and-stripes motif. What is more American than the apple? Hot dogs, baseball and APPLE pie... I rest my case." Working primarily in watercolors and colored pencils, Penny has won a variety of national awards for her still-life paintings ? thus the exquisite realism of the apples adorning her Pony's flanks.
