As it happens, I painted this work during one of the hottest spells of this summer. I was inspired when walking down
a road very similar to this scene far from the hassle and noise of the city. Those who are old enough will remember
traveling down seldom-used roads past woods, streams and the occasional farm. Cars were temperamental at best
and usually found the most inconvenient place to break down in the humid sun of summer. In this depiction a couple
found a sympathetic farmer to supply water for their overheated car. It was a chance for everyone to enjoy some
company and talk about the day's events that are not so far in the past. The farmer's Grandson Thomas, remembering
experiences so often related by his Grandparents of their earlier years here looks down the road on another hot
summer day to see if what once was might still be.
