Boy in Pink
I added some of the new collage to the old "boy in pink" painting. I cut out all the girl room stuff from the pottery barn kids catalog.
Here are some interesting pink facts from wikipedia: "In Western culture, the practice of assigning pink to an individual gender began in the 1920s. From then until the 1940s, pink was considered appropriate for boys because it was the more masculine and decided color while blue was considered appropriate for girls because it was the more delicate and dainty color. Since the 1940s, the societal norm apparently inverted so that pink became appropriate for girls and blue appropriate for boys, a practice that has continued into the 21st century."
