This photograph was taken of a friend's vehicle, this is NOT a promotion for a car company but more of an observation of art and society. The Silverado emblem was intricate and seemed to be designed for aesthetics. Several periods throughout US history reflect creativity and commercial expression of the individual, while others seem focused on basic purpose or worse yet, the distinct purpose of corporate profit in mind with little attention to beauty. Some interesting visuals are things like the 4th street bridge in Los Angeles, or perhaps art deco architecture seen in many cities across the nation and many 60's and 70's building structures.
The color Maize is a favorite of mine along with Avocado green and some of the choices in appliance colors from the 70's.
Below is a quote from a Native American legend about a man named Arikara who was hunting buffalo for several days to no avail... then one day they mysteriously vanished leading him to discover Maize, better know as corn.
"Everyone knows how my life since childhood has been useless, that my deeds among you more evil than good. So, since no one would regret should any evil befall me, I will be first to touch the plant and taste its fruit."
