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.
