And yet I still didn't fully embrace it until a few years ago, when Brian and I were married.
Brian really likes fish, even the non-salmon types (salmon was the only fish I could tolerate most of my life). I've always liked seafood, and living in Wisconsin you'd think it was written in the state charter that I HAD to eat fish - around here, you got da Friday fish fry, ya know! Cripes, I tink everyone in da area goes out fer fish on Fridays, 'specially during Lent when ya can't have meat on Fridays (for the uninitiated, I live in a VERY Catholic region and one of their dietary laws is no meat on Fridays during Lent. Hence, the Friday fish fry. Do you like my Wisconsin accent, hey?).
|The cats can have their tuna, as far as I'm concerned! :D|
But apparently I'm in a minority! Just look at these marvelous labels for all sorts of canned fish! What cracks me up is how utterly unappetizing the tuna looks - if these companies were trying to convert anyone to eating canned fish they'd have to do better than that! :D Granted, these are all from the 50s and 60s, so the printing technology wasn't quite there yet. But I love them all the same. They're quite wonderful in their primitiveness, aren't they?
And I LOVE using them in my artwork! There are so many different ways you can use them and not just for fish-themed artwork, either, although admittedly that's what I did. :D
|For these pieces I used the labels for the frames! :D|
