Believe it or not, the "roots" to this painting stem from football. Advertising is everywhere. I go to the grocery store and it is not only on the cart, but on the floor. Candlestick Park at one time was called 3 Com Park. 3Com Corporation bought rights to the stadium name for $900,000 a year from 1995-2002. I've heard that the new San Francisco 49er stadium in Santa Clara will have every gate "sponsored". Clothing can have logos on our chest or our backsides that make us look like walking billboards. We can get money to have our cars embellished with information to promote a product or a service. I happened to watch a few moments of a football game the other day and one of the coaches was wearing a mouthpiece (as so many of them do), but this mouthpiece was covered with the word "MOTOROLA". The standout feature of the coaches face was, not his eyes, his nose or his mouth, but it was the logo of the company who manufactured the mouthpiece. Are we so desperate and needy that we need corporate sponsorship for everything?
