It has been fun to recognize the brands captured on this shelf. Some are not quite so antique. It is a real mish mosh of products here.
I like to paint my text freehand. I'm a self confessed font nerd - not particularily knowledgable but I really love the feel of the different styles of lettering. Serif, sans serif... it is all a fun challenge.
I've noticed for some strange reason this painting seems to be coming together from the right to left for me - that is really counter intuitive for me. However, I just go with the next logical step for the piece and this is what came up!
