Trail of Painted Ponies "For Spacious Skies," 1E/6,312.
"Some of the most famous memorials, monuments and landmarks in our country inspired my Pony," says the artist, a full-time graphic designer at the University of Illinois. While acknowledging that Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the U.S. Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial can only be fully appreciated when experienced in person, Janet wanted her Pony to be a kind of road trip across America... on horseback. The original For Spacious Skies was the People's Choice Award winner of the national America the Beautiful competition. A full-time graphic designer at the University of Illinois, Janet complements her professional career designing posters, fliers and advertisements with wonderfully rendered commissions of animals, mainly dogs and horses.
