Get Out of This Pickle with Scottish Independence by 


My lovingly restored and retouched kitsch vintage World War 2 poster is for women supporters of Scottish independence. It features the famous Of Course I Can perfect American housewife doing her bit on the home front for the war effort as she pickles every vegetable and fruit in sight. Created in 1944 by artist Dick Williams for the United States Department of Agriculture War Food Administration Department, the painting shows a blue eyed housewife in a frilly apron decorated with flowers to reinforce her housewifely status. She holds three large glass vegetable jars in her arms, with three more tasty looking jars underneath. Beets, greens, tomatoes, she’s canned them all! I’ve substituted her original caption ‘Of course I can!’ with ’Let’s get out of this pickle!’ Underneath I’ve added the slogan ‘Scottish Housewives for Independence.’ I’ve also given her a tattoo of the international feminist symbol in a tartan pattern, seen on her left arm.
