Drought, watercolor

9 by 12 d'Arches 140 pound paper
I spent part of today driving up old US 66 toward Tulsa, (Arcadia, Luther, Wellston, Chandler, Davenport and Stroud) looking for photos...it was greener than this in some places, and more trees, with cattle huddled under them in the shade, but I saw several farm ponds drying up.
