We have themed shows at our gallery, Tipping Paint Gallery, most months.This past summer we had a show called Assorted Flavors. There are many things that come in assorted ‘flavors’. LifeSavers immediately came to mind; I could hear ‘assorted flavors’ as part of the advertising. Turns out that those words were not on the rolls anywhere!
Once the idea of lifesavers got into my head, they were stuck there. I figured it would be fairly easy to find a roll of assorted flavors; boy was I wrong! I started with the drug store, then Target and the grocery store – all I found were bags of individually wrapped, gummy lifesavers. The only hard ones were mint. My next thought was a convenience store. I live in town so there are lots of convenience stores – it took 5 stores before I found them and I bought all three rolls that they had!
Working on this project was a lot of fun; there is a bit of a challenge to build up bright, primary colors with only magenta, cyan, yellow, and indigo.
