This retrospective painting captures the moment when the artist broke her leg, and ended up spending two months living with her grandparents, who took care of her. This painting is about that recovery period. It contrasts how difficult it was for her at that time, but looking back now was this idyllic stretch of summer days spent with people she loves very dearly. This painting attempts to capture that shift in memory—the incisions from surgery are still fresh, but she is lounging outside with gelato and a bottle of wine on a beautiful rug.
