Fairfax County's Favorite Wine

You saw the left half of this sign a few days ago. Now here's the whole sign including the obligatory red banner and Trader Joe's barnstorming biplane. In deference to the cranky Falls Church authority who complained that we were outside the official boundaries of the City of Falls Church, I added "Fairfax County" to the banner instead. This also reflects the fact that many of our customers are from McLean and Vienna, neighboring towns in Fairfax County. 

This is a Photoshop approximation of what the sign will look like when fitted together on the wall. I had to reconstruct the juncture of the sign halves, but I think it will do for the billboard. This project was quite a job as I had to work with big unwieldy boards in a tiny space. I've done that for almost 10 years now but I never quite get used to it. 

It's finally done now so so here's your hand-done billboard. Now for the wine. $3.29 a bottle? No problem. Just chill your Charles Chard and then decant it into a crystal decanter. Your guests will think you spent big bucks on some fancy wine. 

"Fairfax County's Favorite" is, as assembled, 8 feet by 4 feet, acrylic on masonite, June-July 2013. Click on the pic for a larger view.
