Bill Anton is an "artist's artist". His bold brushwork and
sophisticated use of light have brought his work to the forefront of
Western art. "Warming Up" is a dramatic and beautiful painting that
made it's mark at auction in early 2008. The cool colors in the
foreground contrast with the warm colors throughout the upper half of
the painting giving the viewer the exact feeling of the riders as the
sun rises warming up the snowy landscape.
