Painting by Karen Keene Day

Artist and friend Karen Keene Day ( sent me this painting recently that she did from a photo I took of black stallion Bounce last November. WOWOW!

I wish the photo of the painting did it justice – it’s remarkable, and I wanted to share it! I was moved to tears when I unwrapped the painting because I recognized Bounce immediately, and the colors and vibrancy of the work took me right back to a magical evening in golden light with Bounce and his girls near the base of Knife Edge.

Karen has visited several wild horse herds, but the Spring Creek Basin horses are special to her because she and her husband spend summers in Ouray, about two hours away. Her art now exclusively showcases wild horses, and she is a very active advocate for their continued protection.

To see more of Karen’s art, visit her Web site. I think you’ll be drawn to the color and movement and spirit of the horses in each painting. I am so honored to have one of her original paintings, and as I’ve already told Karen, I will treasure it always!
