An ardent supporter of American wild horses, Santa Barbara artistKaren Bezuidenhout followed a stay at Sundance with this intimate, multi-layered work done exclusively for us to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sundance Catalog. Limited edition, unframed pony print of original acrylic and oil painting on canvas. 24"W x 24"H.
Since 2006, I have had the privilege to work with Sundance Catalog. Robert Redford’s beautiful vision and philosophy of supporting unique and creative people is the founding principal of Sundance’s success. I am extremely grateful and honored to be associated with this company. I left my birth country of South Africa fifteen years ago. At that time, I dreamed of making a living doing what I absolutely love, painting. Sundance catalog has been a major stepping stone to success in my journey as an artist. A beautiful ripple effect has been created due to my partnership with Sundance. Their support of my work has allowed me to donate to various charities. Wild horse preservation organizations here in the United States, as well as Aids orphanages in South Africa have been supported, thanks in part to Sundance’s vision. Forever grateful. —Karen Bezuidenhout
