Prisoner Of The Sun

”Prisoner Of The Sun” 🎨 by Dan Victor • I was at the beach in Wildwood, NJ with my grandmother. Nan was what I called her. She was Italian and had darker skin than mine. She would cover herself in baby oil when she sat in the sun. I often wondered if she would get melanoma, so I worried a little about that. In the end she never suffered any effects of her constant sun-bathing. Perhaps her skin was built to withstand the constant rays. I used watercolor on this piece as I thought about Nan’s obsession with being on the beach.

In the end, it was congestive heart failure that got her, but she had lived to be well into her 90’s. It didn’t make me any less sad. In fact, I felt such a loss, I had to take time off of work to grieve. She really loved me unconditionally. I have never known LOVE like that, except from my Nan. I still miss her. XO.
