You would think that someone using the moniker “Ice Dog Hans” would know the cold. Well what I know is finally Idaho is being pacified. The Hard Freeze that has occurred in the mountains will put most of the flys to sleep finally. They can be very bothersome until then, especially in the month of September. I just hope we finally get a hard freeze in the valley where I live, then I can live without those pesky flys. At that time Idaho will truly be pacified. Until then this painting will suffice.
“Pacification of Idaho”, 14×18 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 6oct09, Shiva-Earth-Choate7 palette.
This is intended to be a companion piece to the painting I did in the spring called “Pacification of Virginia”. Let’s hope we all “chill out” soon with the coming winter.
