Secretariat Pictures - Secretariat Art Prints
Finding a good quality art print related to a favorite sport is just one way to achieve this sense of personal expression in a home, and few sports have captured the attention of people from all walks of life and from such disparate times in history as much as horse racing. From the most aristocratic circles to everyday families, horse racing has captivated scores of generations of minds for both its high stakes competition and its long traditions. To many people, indeed, Thoroughbred racing is to this day known as "the Sport of Kings."
Among the most famous of Thoroughbred racehorses, Secretariat stands alone as a unique example of horse racing at its best and most competitive. With wins as a Triple Crown champion and a demonstration of American ingenuity and competitive might, Secretariat is a symbol of all that is best and most exciting about the sport. Secretariat's wins were not just surprising to followers of Thoroughbred racing (America had been lagging in Thoroughbred competition for decades when Secretariat began his streak of wins) but to all fans watching a major upset of dominance over the sport by countries such as the United Kingdom.
As the legend of Secretariat grows, a fine print of the racehorse's image has become a collector's item in recent decades. Prints of Secretariat can be placed anywhere in the home as both an elegant decoration and a showing of good taste and respect for the sport of horse racing. Secretariat pictures - Secretariat art prints included - can come in many different forms. Painters have often used Secretariat as a subject matter for their work, while photographers have captured many of Secretariat's images even as he crossed the finish line. Such prints can give a historical and fun feel to a home and serve as the perfect addition to a fan's collection of memorabilia and art.

David Stoecklein Art Prints of Horses
Some of his best work features moments of interaction between people and horses, providing moving and vivid glimpses into the special relationship that humans have forged with horses, through thousands of years of nurturing delicate bonds and taming spirits vastly different from those of mankind. David Stoecklein Art Prints of Horses celebrate those bonds and that special spirit that has endeared the horse to us even in the more modern era.
Among his works are Running in the Gold and Running in the Dunes, which portray herds of horses in different light and landscapes. These images provide viewers with a sense of horses' might and majesty in the open and field and dunes of the West, surrounded by beautiful, yet earthy tones and shades. They represent just a small portion of what Stoecklein is capable of accomplishing in his artistic field, which is truly broad in scope.
Stoecklein is also the author of several books, including Dude Ranches of the American West and Don't Fence Me In: Images of the West, among many published titles, the majority of which feature Western and cowboy life, as well as exceptional photographs. He is also the creator of many thematic calenders on these topics, including those for the current year, all of which feature his stunning photography.
At the time of this article, Stoecklein lives in the scenic Wood River Valley of south-central Idaho, along with his family.

Cowgirl in Heaven
Stoecklein started his photographic career creating Western outdoors views for major advertisers in national magazines. But while completing these work assignments, he realized the spirit of the west could and should be documented. As a result, his photographs of cowboys, cowgirls, horses and ranch scenes have filled galleries and private homes with the magic of the American West.
David Stoecklein - Cowgirl In Heaven - Horse Print is available in a 36” x 24” art print. Like all Stoeklein’s photographic art works, “Cowgirl” is as vivid as the day it depicts. The view is printed on medium weight paper. It is coated with a special finish that blocks the fading which at times dims the colors of lifelike prints. The result not only captures the colors of nature, but represents the meeting-place of unforgettably fine art with down-to-earth affordability.
If you want to see your "cowgirl in heaven", give her this print in a nice frame for Christmas this year. She'll love it for sure!

June Dudley - Boss Lady
Boss Lady is no exception. This is a painting of her granddaughter. With her hands on her hips and dressed in traditional jeans, chaps, and a cowboy hat, this little girl shows everyone that she is indeed the Boss Lady. Included in this realistic painting is a cute puppy and a western background that Dudley has become famous for.
The combination of the beautiful yellow and white flowers and bright green grass in the background with the sweet disposition of the little puppy in the foreground make the picture a sweet print.
Even though you can not see the face of the little girl, her stance says that she is all business. Her hands are on her hips and her feet are shoulder width apart. With that posture, you can just imagine that she is surveying the land or watching over a heard.
One of Dudley's unique features is her ability to make her paintings look like pictures. You can see this in the crisp white shirt of the little girl and the way it falls on her body. That combined with the details of the blue jeans and brown chaps are sure to make anyone who looks at the scene wonder if it is a picture or a painting.
Dudley's work often conveys a feeling of peace to the viewer. This picture is full of spunk and attitude, but also does convey that calm feeling. Through the details of the painting, you can almost feel the warmth of the summer sun on the ranch.
June Dudley - Boss Lady is a great portrait for any home. If there is a little girl in your life, this cowgirl and her dog will definitely stir something within her.

Tony Stromberg - Fierce Grace - Wild Horse Print
By this standard, Tony Stromberg's photograph "Fierce Grace" meets the criteria of both traditional art forms. He employs objectively new techniques and applies both methods in equal measure. The picture is as much a study of the formal qualities of its subject as it is a demonstration of the capacity for black and white photography. He shows us the contrasts and depth of emotional content that are possible in newer forms of art.
The title tells the viewer much about the print itself, as it demonstrates the paradox inherent in the subject matter. Stromberg has chosen to examine the strength of the horse, which is shown in the musculature and movement of its powerful head, and also the elegance of its body's lines. He brings them out in close focus, as a line in a charcoal drawing also might. Note how the artist concentrates the camera on what is in his immediate view, with the landscape behind the subject blurring into an almost abstract picture. Here, 20th and 21st Century art meets classical proportion and line.
Like the work of Impressionists of the 19th and early 20th Centuries, talented photographers like Stromberg can reinvent the world in a familiar but slightly jarring way. In other words, a good photograph should not only document the world around us but express the emotion of the artist through the subject matter. Stromberg clearly links the past with the present in his work, reaching a formal style that stretches back centuries, while drawing on the mechanical representation of a new age.
Owning such a piece will surely warm the heart of any viewer’s eye. Why not warm your heart today?

June Dudley - An Apple a Day - Little Girl Feeding a Horse Print
June Dudley captures that moment with her brush in perfect light. The details of the Palomino's muscle, grace, and structure are so finely illustrated, it's as if the artist had medicinal knowledge of the body of a horse. Just shy of touching the beautiful horse, the little girl, wearing an adorable little western hat, reaches to offer up a beautifully depicted ripe apple and the horse seems to oblige. The print background is settled on a farm blanketed with perfect green grass. In the background center is a large, wise old tree, with a picture perfect sky encompassing all types of shades and colors such as orange, blue, white and gray.
Finally, one cannot miss the beautiful detail depicted throughout this print, including the small plume of smoke billowing up in the background sky as if the artist were hinting to a campfire smoldering in the distance. From the glossiness of the apple that the little girl is handing to the horse, to the detailed golden color of the Palomino, it seems as if the print is an image of what is just outside your cabin window. All aspects of this print are simple, yet painted to the finest detail. From the red, slightly rusted fence to the horse blanket and saddle trim; June Dudley's "An Apple a Day" print would be the perfect focal point of any home.
