05 Mar “Calves in a Blizzard – Montana Winter 2011”
Calves in a Blizzard 12 x 16″ oil/canvas panel
A few weeks back temperatures dropped to almost 30 below, with drifts piling up to around 6 feet in some areas. Normally we enjoy milder temperatures in late February and early March, but this winter has been an unusual one, bringing consistant snowfall and lower temperatures. With calving season underway here on the ranch, we’ve had to stay especially vigilant.
Below are two oil studies I did awhile back and are ones I used to recreate this finished piece. This painting will be at the Western Master’s Art Show during Russell week in Great Falls – Room #166 at the Best Western Heritage Inn.
