Karen Keene Day
Noble, majestic, powerful, beautiful … it is these qualities of horses that Karen Keene Day sees, and through her paintings, reveals their spirituality in a Celebration of Life through color & movement. In their strong family units in the wild or alone, running free or standing still, Karen paints them with rich colors, free of tack and rider.
Her paintings have been shown at Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit in 2002, 2003, & 2004. She will return to Piccolo Spoleto to show her wild horse paintings in 2006.
