At all times, horses have helped humans in their life making our daily routine easier and safer. Armed with a rifle and a sharp knife, native American cowboys were doing their usual work, and they would have been able to do it properly without horses. Nowadays technical progress has put these gracious animals aside, and we can see them only in the country and on racing competitions. If you like watching this amazing sport, you can choose a fancy painting that conveys this competing spirit to decorate your walls. Here you will find five impressive canvases depicting races that will look great in your home.
1. Native Raiser by Leonid Afremov
This canvas depicts a moment when two horses are running practically at the same speed and you can’t tell who will be the winner. There are other jockeys in the picture, and they are waiting for the perfect opportunity to score an advantage and take the lead. Over the years, Leonid Afremov has developed a style that can be called his native; knife paintings by this artist, are always colorful, emotional and very peculiar.
2. Date with Destiny by Denise Finney
When you look at this painting, you can literally feel the speed of movement because the jokey hops off the saddle. It seems that if horse starts running even a bit faster, the man will fall. Every muscle of this enduring animal works properly and you can enjoy their ideal shape. The horse’s number is one and, once you see this immense energy, you believe this is really true.
3. The Race by Alan Kirkland-Roath
Here you can observe three jockeys that are trying hard to win the race. They have left others far behind and you can feel the tension of upcoming victory. The horses’ nostrils are wide open and they are breathing heavily, but the colorfully dressed jockeys keep pushing them forward to become the only champion in this fervent competition.
4. June by Linda Slater
This beautiful painting depicts a very tense jockey and his determined horse that are heading to the finish line as one single organism. There aren’t any competitors within their reach, and this tremendous animal will definitely win the race. The horse’s mane is fluttering in the wind, and the speed sends adrenalin rushing in your veins.
5. Gio Ponti by Robert Clark
This canvas is so carefully painted that it seems to be made by a skilled photographer. The horse depicted here is in a perfect shape, and the jockey has no need to use his whip to make the animal run faster. The sun is illuminating the horse and the bushes in the background, and this seems to be the best day for a glorious victory.
