Pre-Xmas Paintings

It has turned a bit colder up at the ranch; -24 (as low as the digital thermometer goes) to (-55 with windchill in Great Falls) at night, with daytime temps hovering around 0. It is 90 degrees warmer here in Salt Lake City. These images are from the balmy days of late November, when temps were still near freezing. The paintings are taking 1.5 to 2 days to complete. The second painting is twice the size of the prior paintings, and shows 1.5 days work. The larger format really pushes the time frame. The image still needs a whole herd of cattle and a long run of fencing.
A few hours later, here we are with the fence and cattle added in.
