Karen Kersten, a friend of mine and one of the group of horse folk at Benvelle Equestrian Center, is a very accomplished artist. Her gift is the ability to create beautiful oil paintings. Today I received an e-mail from Karen with the latest of her paintings titled “Stepping Out” and I was very impressed. Karen has painted many portraits of horses, some of which my daughter and I own and treasure.
One of Karen’s works, a stunning portrait of polo ponies in action, has been showcased at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Karen has also had an exhibit at an art gallery in Minneapolis and at many venues in the Brainerd Lakes area.
Karen’s pictures are for sale and she can do commissioned portraits of horses and their humans. You can email Karen for more samples of her work or to set up a portrait session.
