Card Players is part of the “Moments in Time” series. It depicts four boys hanging out on the beach at Ocean City, New Jersey, playing cards and listening to the radio, sometime during the 1950’s. It was inspired by old family photos. Two of the boys are my uncles. It symbolizes a slower, more innocent time, when the most important technology was the family radio.
Poppies remind me of Poppy Day which was observed in my elementary school. Mother would give me a dime to buy a red paper poppy. The red poppy is a symbol of all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives since World War One. National poppy day in 2019 will be November 11th.
