Sharp often spent his winters in Montana, because he found it easier to obtain models, and he said the landscape was "too green" in summer. When he was making outdoor sketches, the artist used a sheepherder's wagon as a traveling studio. The artist wrote that he would "haul it to different localities and get several canvases each place . . . . Generally worked outside until cold froze the paint, then in and fired up." For more information, see Absarokee Hut: The Joseph Henry Sharp Cabin by Sarah E. Boehme.
