Adelina, one of my Italian aunts, was the muse behind this mixed media artwork. The black and white photo that inspired it depicted her leaning against a beach’s railings, basking in the sun’s gentle warmth. The day before I started work on the portrait, my eye was caught by poppy seed pods in the garden. Here I envision them as surreal night-lights illuminating the boardwalk, a symbol of the beauty of youth and its fleeting nature.
