I painted this one later in the day after painting the New Paltz morning view. Thunderstorms roared through over the Shawangunk ridge all afternoon, yet there was a break around 2:00-4:30. This is when I shoehorned in this one. Beautiful motif- there really are cows that come down to the creek to drink and cool off. Reminds me very much of the Hart brothers, especially James MacDougal Hart.
