Sunrise in Equestria by CosmicUnicorn Sunrise in Equestria by CosmicUnicorn
This painting was originally a school project--a study of Albert Bierstadt's piece, "Sunrise on the Matterhorn". It was a painting I did winter quarter (my third master study attempt), and I stopped working on it soon after the quarter ended. When I went to NYC with my classmates I saw the real painting at the Metropolitan Museum and was inspired to finish my study--but with some pony improvements.

Oil on panel.
16" x 20" (40.6cm x 50.8cm)


This painting is being donated to the Everfree Northwest charity auction.

I'm kinda curious how much this actually ended up selling for. It's an absolutely beautiful painting.

Was about to post that link, but I see you covered it.  :)

I was at EFNW last year, and watched the whole auction.  The bids crossed $1000 in the first minute, and went up from there quickly.  The guy I was sitting next to was the winning bidder, and he was literally crying tears of joy when the gavel was struck.  I think the rep from the hospital was right behind him too.  I think she was a bit shocked at just how much money was raised in that short amount of time.  :D

It's from November anyway. ;P

I was actually that guy next to you by the way. And yeah I got a bit emotional... It meant a lot to me to win. Cosmic's work had a lot of sentimental value to me. I had no idea the Rep was sitting behind me though. Nice to meet you though. :D

Wow, what a small world indeed!  I know this is a long way back, but congratulations again on nabbing that item!  I had the feeling that the painting held a lot of personal value for you, so my wife and I were very happy to see you emerge victorious.  :)

Will you be attending EFNW again this year?  If so, perhaps we'll cross paths again!  :)


Cheers!

Heh, thank you.

I will be! I wouldn't miss it. And maybe we will. Only difference is I'll have short hair this time. ;P
