Grand Prize Winner
Congratulations to the grand prizewinners Dave and Lisa Rettke of Missouri! They decided on a portrait of their majestic stallion Hallanys Gem Tak. Nan's painting returns Hallany back to his ancestral Bedouin lands. Atop of a rocky outcrop, he surveys the desert at dusk as turbulent sky on the horizon hints at an impending storm. The drama of the scene illustrates the legendary severe conditions that forged this most ancient breed.
