Our Cover This year, we are pleased to showcase the work of talented Western
artist, Martin Grelle. For 30 years, Grelle has made a career of his art, winning numerous important
awards, both regional and national. "Morning Vigil" is a beautiful, soft piece depicting
an encampment beside a stream on a brisk, cold morning. A sentry watches for intruders who
may have approached in the darkness, while painted ponies graze nearby, seeking grasses beneath
the snow. Two brightly attired braves lend color and interest in the foreground. Currently
available as a fine art print and is the subject of one of our notecards, below.
Print - "Morning Vigil" This open edition, fine art print is one of Grelle's most
popular works, depicting a scene that was no doubt repeated hundreds of thousands of times as
Native Americans enjoyed the incredible beauty of the majestic mountains of the American West.
The framed print is beautifully done with an attractive double mat and wide, matching frame.
