“Giants in the Mist II” 24×48 oil on canvas.

A powerful new rendition of one of my most famous paintings is brought back to life!

Bison in Yellowstone National Park often huddle around hot geyser mist/steam during the winter to keep warm. The ice and snow begins to build on their fur creating large snowy ghosts.

I often wonder what has made this subject matter so alluring. The first Giants in the Mist sold the day I finished it and the limited edition print series sold out in just a couple months. It became my most popular painting, and I couldn’t understand why. I thought it was well painted, but I had created other art that was far better, in my opinion.

I wanted to test it and see if I could achieve the same results a second time. Sure enough, the painting sold in just the drawing stage and has garnered much attention in my social media posts.

So what is it about this painting and seeing snowy bison in the mist? I believe it is mystical and haunting, but also powerful and emotional. Bison are elegant, regal and grande and seeing them emerge from obscurity has sense of awe to it, do you agree?

What are your thoughts?
