inspiration monday

in the northeast part of france lives a man who owns a vineyard.  when the grapes are ready, he makes wine, bottles it, and packs it up in boxes for sale at a local shop.  and today, it's the actual boxes of wine, more than the wine itself, that has me inspired.  i'm sure that your artistically trained eye has already noticed the grid pattern made by the way these boxes have been stacked.  and while that's not really such a big deal, if you think about it, there's layout possibilities here (of course, i'll always be a sucker for symmetry any day!).  i was also drawn to the neutral colors of the boxes, with a pop of orange in the tablecloth, finished with the black from the lettering.  and yes, the lettering!   how could the lettering artist in me possibly ignore how expressively these labels have been written!
so, i'm thinking that if a stack of wine boxes arranged by an unknown wine vendor in france can inspire me, then inspiration is surely everywhere!  look around and see what you can find today!  this photo was taken during a trip to france several years ago. click on image for a larger view

Lovely photo, Lori.

Thanks for the reminder to take a look around today. Too often, I've got my mind on where I'm going, not on the trip there...

Wow, very cool! The lettering is very expressive. Wouldn't you have loved to have seen the person who letterd this? He must have been very passionate about this wine.
