Painterly Delights

"Wood For Sale" Sign in the Adirondacks

In my other life I am funky sign aficionado and I love it when people use plumbing gear to make a sign. This thing could withstand the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. I love the flush left, initial cap, red lettering and the fact that sign is off center on its rounded corner frame. I love how the “r” in “for” happily teeters on the stem of the “l” in “sale.” The painter took real delight in this effort and appears to have not wanted his task to end judging but the size of the exuberant “e” at the end of “sale.” Most of all I love the way the lettering sits on the bottom edge of the sign.

    I was imagining this sign during Sandy. It would be swinging around like a trapeze artist.

    The r looks like a diver springing from a high platform.
