Colors do affect emotions.  Designers and marketers are very interested in how colors effect our moods.  There are scientists who specialize in this subject.

So whenever I pass the Food Pantry in Fort Myers, I wonder about the colors. It seems like some thought went into this yellow-green color scheme.

Is this just an attempt to create a cheerful tint for those who go there, sort of like rose-colored glasses?   Or is there a message there having to do with food sustainability or more generally, the environment?

Perhaps the message is, “For those of you who come here, know that we are interested in more than merely filling your bellies”

I don’t know what goes on inside, or what it looks like inside, but the message I see is that the poor people who come for assistance receive more than some canned vegetables.  They probably receive heaping portions of good will, smiles, compassion, and support.

Occasionally I see people there, milling about in small groups, chatting.  So that’s the core answer:  It is a community where people socialize and find hope—-discussing more than just eating.

Mike LaValee, aka Porkchop, is a multi-disciplinary artist from Asbury Park who exhibits in the US and Europe, but he is perhaps best known around here for his mural (s) in the Casino between AP and Ocean Grove. We have all seen and loved the octopus-flapper woman, but now he has imagined  a new version of another fishy female.  This one is a gorgeous creature—a fantasy woman who lives in a multi-colored world simultaneously under the sea and near the sea.

But today, as we were photographing his new creation, some young women of the warm-blooded variety breezed by, animated, beautiful,  and sure of their femininity.  They don’t seem to notice Porkchop’s 2-D creation, because life doesn’t mirror art, it is better than art.

Mike loves to paint artistic themes that are usually based on the female figure, and we applaud him for this new wonderful creature, but by comparison, you can’t beat the real thing.
