"Can't You Put on a Little Lipstick?" Collection

I created the series, "Can't You Put on a Little Lipstick?"
from an enormous collection of giveaway lipsticks I amassed
over a number of years.

But that's not the whole story...since I was of dating age,
my grandmother has always gently urged, "Can't you put on
a little lipstick?" This repeated suggestion, combined with
my lipstick collection, started me thinking about how wearing lipstick contributes to our concepts of beauty. That's what
led me to put on a little lipstick, on watercolor paper, to see how it might be perceived.
