Congratulations to Dulce Patricia Alonzo Diaz for Light of Life winning Best Overall at Wild Heart Gallery's Masters of Domestic Animal Art 2023 art exhibition! This virtual exhibition is meant to honor the artists who are inspired by the animals that live and work along side us. Light of Life is a bold and elegant example of hyper-realism that makes us keenly aware of the artist's love of horses.

Best in Show
Light of Life, by Dulce Patricia Alonzo Diaz
8×10 inches
Charcoal and white pastel on paper

From the artist, “I consider horses as one of the most interesting animals and with which I can connect more, is that there is something in it that speaks to you without words, it recognizes the purity of your being and the light of your spirit, they are clear where they are going on the path of life and always choose to look for the bright side of life so as not to stumble.”
