Antelope Island is on the Great Salt Lake, near Salt Lake City, Utah. Great place to visit. I'll keep working on this painting for the next few weeks. I changed my photo around and put different mountains in the background from another photo taken on the same day at a slightly different view. There was only a little bit of snow on those mountains on that day in November. It was overcast and very gray. Not sure how my painting will turn out. I will probably darken the sky more at the end.
Happy holiday and happy new year to everyone.

Acrylic painting on canvas, 8" X 10". I will probably make a few cards from this one too. If you are interested in purchasing the original, or cards, please feel free to contact me.

This scene was at the Fielding Garr ranch on Antelope Island (Antelope Valley State Park). My daughter and I had a wonderful day there, saw lots of bison, mule deer etc. The ranch was quite interesting too and we spent some time walking around and learning about ranching. This island is in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. They were able to ranch there (and the bison herds are able to do well there) because there are natural springs with fresh water on the island. (See Nov. 20 posting -- last 2 photos.)
My painting of the snowmobile won "Artist of the Month" at the Manchester Artists Association meeting this week and is on display at the Bedford (NH) public library this month. (See Nov 1. posting for photo.)
