To The Editor:
Thank you for your article featuring local artist Karen Vance! She is so gracious and generous to our community  as she shares her talent and her art with us. When she says “life as an artist is spent in your work” she truly means that she is devoted to her fine art profession, whether in her studio or in the outback painting our magnificent scenery!  Her list of awards confirms that Grand County has been blessed with a true professional artist in residence.  And as she participates at the Winter Park Art Affair she grants us the opportunity to enjoy in person her enthusiasm for her profession and for our Rocky Mountain surroundings; and the opportunity to become collectors of her art.  We can join Governor Hickenlooper in owning a Karen Vance!
