"Hot Lunch"

Tommy Thompson painted "Hot Lunch" primarily in memory of his mother, Eugenia. Eugenia loved her cows and even gave them pet names. She enjoyed going out to the pasture and calling "Sooooo Cow" to her favorite cows. She would talk "baby talk" to her cows because they were like her pets.

Many people have considered what the name of the painting means. Some have conjured up ideas of a "Hot Lunch" of steak, but what Thompson was really referring to is the "Hot Lunch" that the young calf has just had.
