Sirocco by Jan Van Ek  http://www.janvanek.com/
Jan grew up in Medford, Oregon. Her love of horses naturally expressed itself when her artistic gifts flourished at an early age. Her incessant drawing of horses while studying the anatomy of her first horse, Midnight led to the study of fine art at Oregon State University. Sirocco was brought to Redmond as part of the first installment for Art Around the Clock. Sirocco was voted # 1 in the first Art Around the Clock "People's Choice" vote. Sirocco was purchased and added to Redmond's permanent outdoor gallery.
