Aura of the Perfect Hostess
I love bouncing between collage, drawing, and printmaking, which is either evidence of my versatility, or my inability to concentrate on one thing; probably the latter. Anyway, I use a lot of old magazines for my collages, most from the 50's and 60's. In going through these aging volumes, it occurs to me that what we eat has changed quite a lot. I see more advertisements for peas and peaches than just about any other food. Why was that? Were the pea and peach lobbies so strong back then that it was all anyone knew to eat? I tried to remember when was the last time I ate canned peas or peach halves, and I couldn't, so I had peas for dinner tonight. No one else would touch them. Figures.
