This painting depicts a subject whose essence is vintage Hollywood glamour. The figure has coiffed hair and dewy skin, and lounges by the pool in a silk robe while soaking up the sun's rays and awaiting a lunch order. In July of 2022, the artist decided to book a night at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, California. While there, fell in love with the location's design and colors, as well as the sense of ease she felt as soon as she arrived. The location, as well as the feeling that one could unwind and move at their own pace, inspired this composition.

Megan Gabrielle Harris’ work typically features women of color depicted as powerful, regal and divine; these figures are often painted against a rich and vibrant backdrop. Influenced by travel and nature, the artist explores dreamscapes and the concept of escape—an idea she identifies with the artwork of her father, Thomas Harris. Megan Gabrielle Harris taps into many elements of her father's work for her own practice, including: joy, sorrow, hopefulness, curiosity, fearlessness and the beauty of solitude.
