Painting of cows resting in the shade on a hot August day

August Pasture

On a melt-your-face hot kinda day, I took my boys on a hike with the intent that we would make it to Evel Knievel’s Snake River Canyon jump site. It was too hot. We didn’t make it, but as we sat in the shade for a minute to rest and drink water, we saw these other poor creatures. We felt cooked, can’t imagine how they felt. In a private collection. Gouache on watercolor paper, 5 by 7 inches.
