Special Commission-Yellowstone Club




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.” 

“As a longtime fan and friend of John Banovich, it was a thrill walking into the [Warren Miller Lodge] to see after all these years there was finally balance and perfection. The painting sets the tone for the whole club perfectly; better than we could even have imagined. It brought tears to my eyes.”
