The Limited Edition Poster was painted by Alberta’s Western Artist, Donna King. Donna was born in Edmonton AB in 1955. After spending her childhood on a farm just outside of Edmonton she resettled near Leduc AB in 1975. Donnas love for horses was evident at an early age as she worked on pencil sketches for her mother. Her love for vibrant color led her to oil paintings and she started getting requests for paintings on hand saws and circular saws. For many years she had sold-out shows at the Ponoka Stampede Art Show. For the past eight years her paintings have been juried into the Western Art Show and Auction in Ellensburg WA. Two of Donna's paintings have been accepted into the 2011 March in Montana Auction in Great Falls MT. Donna only paints about four or five paintings per year and most have sold in Canada the USA and Japan. This self-taught artist loves to paint what she knows the west country wildlife horses dogs cows and a cowboy.
