“I have studied the American Bison for nearly 30 years. What I have discovered, many times over, is when a herd of bison run through the fresh powdery snow all you hear is their breathing. Their thundering hooves fall silent. Once numbering 10 million, stretching from Alaska to Mexico, today they number about five hundred thousand”. – John Banovich

“On December 27th, 2012 we unveiled “Cold Air-Deep Powder” at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, MT. This detailed painting of a herd of bison was commissioned by Sam Byrne and the other equity investors for the club’s Warren Miller Lodge. The vibrant and action-packed scene features the animals stampeding through deep snow with a massive framed size of 8’ x 16’, making it one of John Banovich’s largest paintings. “It’s perfect,” said Sam Byrne, whose firm Crossharbor Capital owns the private resort, “I have always had a vision of what a Banovich painting would look like in this space and he executed it perfectly. We wanted to create something experiential for the Yellowstone Club, and he nailed it.”
