Strength of Script

When NYC enjoyed a picture perfect 75 degree day this week,  I took a break and ran down to catch the Macy’s Flower Show, one of my favorite springtime rituals, only to find I was one day late! At first I was immobilized by disappointment,  but I quickly tracked down other flower displays in the city that seemed to have sprung open over night, as if on cue, all at once!  What inspiration-I couldn’t wait to get back to my watercolors!

The new public space in front of Macy’s.  You would think it was Paris!

Don’t the taxis look happy next to the allee of daffs?

A girl gets hungry from all that color.

I love the detail that Dean and Deluca gives to all their petite signs.  What a fun lettering style. This one single detail of their signature signs sets this store apart from so many others.  Ah, the Strength of Script.

  1. What a fun day – Paris in NYC!

  2. Now I need to go to Paris to discover NYC in Paris.

  3. The public space by Macy’s is really a wonderful idea, what a difference it has brought to that area…especially with the Spring flowers.
