Titled Traffic Jam, the 11 ½ inch by 12 inch early and humorous work depicts a cow blocking a car from getting by. It's a bit out of sync with Lewis's repertoire, but is a rare and important example of the breadth of her work (est. $30,000-$35,000)
All estimates quoted are in Canadian dollars.

Her work has been featured in several past sales, including one held in October 2022, in which eleven paintings by the artist brought a staggering $559,510.
