Art: Mr. Mary Kay's Ride by Artist Christopher Boswell
Mr. Mary Kay's Ride

This piece just jumped out at me for this show, hard to say exactly why. Recently, I had gone to the Lemay Car Collection Museum in Tacoma and had seen some beautiful cars. Wanting something whimsical because that's my impression of Pink at times I came up with this truck and the title.

If your a woman and you wear pink it is not a big deal. It may be a big part of your wardrobe, people notice but rarely comment. This reality is set on it's ear if you are a man and you wear pink.

Everytime I choose this romantic color heads turn and people comment. "You must be secure in your masculinity" they may say or "real men wear pink" and some may say other unmentionables.

Imagine the immensity of this statement on a semi truck rig!

Have you seen it?

Could you drive it? How about you?
