Horse Artist Ritch Gaiti has donated a painting to the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC).
The oil painting, entitled Just Lingering, will be used to support the charity’s cause of protecting free-roaming herds as part of America’s national heritage.
AWHPC director Suzanne Roy said Gaiti’s work brought home the beauty of wild horses, reminding supporters why they worked so hard to protect them in the western rangelands.
Gaiti focuses on bringing horses to life on canvas. His paintings of horses running free across the range represent the grace, beauty, and, most of all, freedom that once dominated the landscape.
“There are no corrals or fences in my work – just the natural boundaries of nature,” he says. “I strive to capture the energy and soul of the horse through my paintings.
“I am a great supporter of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, which is trying to preserve the sanctity of this beautiful species. They do with advocacy for wild horses what I do with horse paintings – promote the value and magnificence of America’s mustangs.”
Just Lingering measures 24 inches by 36 inches.
Gaiti’s works have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the US, including the International Museum of the Horse, The Great Plains Art Museum and the American Quarter Horse Museum.
