If you\’re a regular attendee at Canada\’s performance horse pinnacle event, the Canadian Supreme, you\’ll already be familiar with the paintings renowned Western artist Paul Van Ginkel was commissioned to paint over the course of three years to depict the three events of the Supreme: cutting (2007), cow horse (2008) and reining (2009).
Each year, the originals were unveiled at the event, and auctioned off to a frenzied bidding crowd.
What you might not know is that each year, the images were also reproduced into a limited edition of 50 giclee art prints. Each print is signed by Paul, measures 30 x 20\”, and sells for $950.
This year, buckles will still be the top honor, but accompanying them will be one of these gorgeous limited edition prints. It\’s a fantastic way to hang the artwork of one of Canada\’s greatest western artists on your wall, and celebrate the passion you have for the performance horse.
Remember, entries to the Canadian Supreme close September 1.
Note: I originally reported the limited edition prints were in lieu of buckles this year, which indeed was the case, but since then the Canadian Supreme has decided to award both buckles and a limited edition print to each of the 12 Canadian Supreme class champions. Savvy decision!
