Walking Out

Here's one of the paintings I've been working on recently. It is 15" x 30" oil on canvas. I do not have a title for it yet. It is closed to being finished, only a couple of little touches to go. This is another of the many equine pieces I'm completing for a gallery in March.

My work will vary more in a few weeks, but for right now it will be horses, horses, horses. In my work for this gallery I enjoy exploring the relationships between people and horses. Taking a more intimate view on the relationship between horse and rider. Painting that chemistry is what interests me. That's where I'm at for the next couple of weeks.

This painting is for sale, and if your interested in it (before it goes to the gallery in March) feel free to email me for the details at klm at -- you know how to put the address together.

As an aside we have only one horse here now. I lost my 30 y.o. Morgan mare (I had her for twenty years) a couple of months ago. Naturally that was really tough -- she was my girl. In residence now is my daughters eventing horse, he is an almost 16 y.o. German Warmblood -- and a great guy.

I love the mood of this painting. You really do get the feeling of the horses and what's going on. Very well done!

Hi Karen, really nice work. I only do 'art' by using pictures, so I admire you so much. I also have Morgan horses, 13 to be specific, the oldest in early 20's. I had a golden retriever that we lost three year ago, so your golden picture is really special too. I am in awe of your ability.....keep up the good work. Saw your post on the animal artist group and decided to check out your blog, very glad I did! Ha, I had to laugh when you said you write like you talk, I do that too, and I don't think it is a bad thing. Congratulations on all your accomplishments. You deserve them!
