Original western art painting by Wyoming artist John Giarrizzo. This beautiful piece is titled "Red Desert: Crimson Passage" and is oil on hardboard. This abstract scene is an unmistakable herd of horses on the move, such motion, light and color. The interplay between the darkest shadows in navy to the lightest lights in fiery orange is amazing! This original western art piece is in a gilt frame.
Framed size measures: 18"L x 2-1/2"W x 15"H
