This painting drills into the summer quadrant of life. The quote “Circle citronella candles” contained within it is taken from R.E.M’s song “Summer Turns to High”. It directly references the heady days of sunshine and success tinged with the ticking clock of aging, and depicts the rough with the smooth through the darker shadows on the summer sun. Although essentially a joyous time, there is a bittersweet element through the citronella candle reference.
