Drawing: Paper, Pastel on Paper.
This is a pastel drawing of McGrath's Service station, based on a photograph that I took around 2000. The owner had retired and the station was bought by a succession of fuel distributors, Statoil, Tougher's and more. Little by little the outhouses were demolished and the site is unrecognisable now but still a modern fuel station with refreshments etc. I have a particular fond memory of Mr McGrath. About 1997, when the building was in disrepair and looked abandoned, my car broke down opposite it on what was then the Naas Dual carriageway (now replaced by a motorway M7, but once the most modern lentht of road in Ireland). A figure immerged from the garage and crossed the road. He examined the car, got his tools and got it going again so that we limped home. He would not take any money from me. The kindness of strangers!
