I'm a Southern California girl. Fourth generation born in Los Angeles. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, which, like much of Los Angeles and Orange counties was predominantly orange groves at first part of the twenty first century. To me, "orange" means oranges, and of course, the graphic labels of the crates they used to come in.
I started by drawing my version of a crate label. Then I experimented with a variety of painting, printing, and silkscreening techniques using that basic imagery. I collaged all my favorite bits together to create my homage to the orange.
The process I took was not my usual and I procrastinated a lot, trying to wrap my head around what I wanted to do, in what order it needed to be done, and what it might look like in the end. But, it was worthwhile as I am very happy with the final product, and may even incorporate some of what I learned into future projects.
