That Summer When We Walked the Field

I was remembering how in the spring and summer we used to walk the fields. I wanted to paint this with all the warmth of a summer day, the sun off the water, and the feeling of contentment, that earthy sense of belonging to the land, of standing there leaning on the long wooden pole we used for digging rocks and pounding the ground to scare the rock chucks - who were always tunneling and causing difficulties for the flood irrigation.
