I shot this iconic sign in downtown Pittsburgh, headquarters of the Heinz food company.
“Although ketchup is the most famous Heinz product today, when Henry Heinz started the Company in 1869, his first product was bottled horseradish made from his mother’s own recipe.Ketchup didn’t come along until seven years later in 1876.” – Heinz website
About the Optimism of Color Blog
For 365 days, I am posting a photo or piece of art that I have created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.
Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
