A commissioned painting of an interesting shack with a great old paint patina. Who would guess this was once the air traffic control building from a 1930’s and 40’s Air Force Base in southeast Montana. The faintly visible HTC on the roof stands for “Hardin Toluca Custer” Airfield. Weathered numbers on the siding indicate the elevation of the location. The grandson of the man who purchased this property from the Air Force back in the forties asked me to paint this building, which still stands near where the Bighorn River joins the Yellowstone.
