By 1923, when he painted Winter, Bill Gollings had cultivated a rich paletteÑtake a look at the reds he sneaks into winter browns, the bright yellow and pink peeking through the pines, and the pale purples mixed into the white snow. He also adopted a spare, shaggy style, painting in broad, feathery strokes, as seen in the tails and manes of the horses and the fringe on the buckskin sleeves that protect the IndiansÕ rifles. In Winter, the drumbeat of the cold hammers, the rising wind whistles in the pines and the crusty snow crunches under plodding hooves. ItÕs one foot in front of another, from here to camp.
