"KEEVER" - Ellen Reilly Marshall, from Ybor City, Florida, is this year's commemorative poster artist featuring a beautiful image of Keever, a horse of many colors. According to Ellen, "I use soft pastels in vibrant colors, incorporating dramatic light to a sanded surface. The display of energetic strokes along with strong color enhances these heroic figures. Color is what starts my engine." 

This beautiful, unframed poster (signed or unsigned), is 20" high and 28" wide, and is printed on Mohawk Options cover paper stock courtesy of Olmsted Kirk Paper Company and printed by Cockrell Enovation. The poster was designed by Pinkerton Design. Poster is now available for shipment comes rolled in a sturdy packing tube.
