A black and white photo of Adelina, one of my Italian aunts, was the inspiration for this mixed media artwork. It showed her leaning against the railings of a hot beach, feeling the sun's gentle warmth on her skin. The day before I drew it I was admiring the delicate shapes of poppy seed pods, and imagined them as surreal lamps that could light the boardwalk at night. These pods spoke to me of youth's beauty and the transience of life.
