This past weekend, I went to the Norton Simon with my lovely friends for the recent print exhibit. Since I am learning how to make prints lately, it was really nice to see the kinds of work that can be accomplished with the different printing techniques. One print I really fell in love with is Ed Ruscha's Pepto-Caviar Hollywood. It isn't just because of the novelty of printing with Pepto-Bismol and caviar, but that these colors were used to such great effect! I found myself gravitating to the same colors in different pieces over and over: light blues, earth tones, and of course pink and yellow. I can't wait to surround myself with and use these colors together somehow.
