I love the graphic garish signs that supermarkets use to advertise sales. The food colors are always slightly off, but so beautiful – (Would you really eat meat that color?) I have plans to work them into a painting when I get the chance. So I asked my local store if they would let me take home the big rolls of paper after the sales passed. They were happy to share and the bright heavy paper makes perfect gift wrap. I love how the large scale is distorted into abstraction on little packages. I know some little boys that would be thrilled to open presents wrapped in gross-out pig feet paper. And the produce section is always perfectly seasonal. Delicious.
