I was fortunate to find these bison resting just on the other side of the roadside fence where I could paint them at liesure. This Indiana TNC preserve hosts the bison in an 1,100 acre prairie being created in the former lake bottom of Beaver lake – drained a century ago for agriculture.

Painted on location. Canvas mounted to hardboard.
