"My Spot"

Tommy Thompson painted "My Spot" after visiting a picturesque farm near Danville, AL. He was first attracted to a meadow full of hay bales, but then a lane beckoned him to see what was waiting at the other end. These two young boys, who reminded us of "Huck" and "Tom," were waiting at the end of the lane--rather by their grandmother's pond ready to dip their hooks in the water. Their dog, "Pinky," added another dimension to the painting's story.
