Market Memory, Acrylic on shaped board, 36” x 78”, 2012

This 1956 Ford Fairlane characterized this fun era.  It was a time when fast food drive inn’s became a delicious option, replacing the home-style meals which so many were accustomed to.  A positive social behaviour is to eat a healthy diet, filled with fruits and vegetables.  My grandfather was a vendor on the Hamilton Farmer’s Market and the images painted on top of this car are taken from the Hamilton Public Archives and show my families stand.  A vegetarian lifestyle has become a preferred meal plan for many.
