🌟 We are thrilled to unveil the four incredible works of art that made it to the final round of the International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association’s National Championship Show Art Contest. The level of talent and creativity showcased in this year’s submissions was nothing short of awe-inspiring!
🌍 Worldwide Participation: We received a record-breaking 29 submissions from artists across the globe. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who poured their passion into their artwork and sent it our way. The artistic expressions came from diverse corners of the world, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Egypt, Ukraine, and Latvia.
✨ A Mix of Experience: This year our contest attracted artists who have been finalists or winners in the past, as well as some who submitted their artwork for the first time. It’s truly amazing to see the talent contributing to the rich tapestry of our competition.
✨ All of the submissions were amazing and narrowing the field to just four to choose the winner from was so difficult! Our finalists include:
✨ Honour and Reverence by Sonia Stiplosek
✨ Meu Amor by Sharron Matheson
✨ The Golden Q by Anthony Valentino Robinson
✨ Toward the Light by Alison Burnett
✨ CONGRATULATIONS! ✨
