this makes our boat float!
We had a very special delivery this week. This has been in the works for the past two years and we’ve kept really quiet about it (didn’t want to jinx it). Very cool to have our our artwork featured on a wine label (we like wine…a lot).
The Back Story:
Phone rings. It’s a young man calling from California. He has decided to produce wines under the name of Floating Boat Winery and was searching the Internet to find out if anyone else was using the name. He runs into images of our floating boats. Since his father is a Jungian psychologist, our references to Jung, the collective unconscious and archetypes really resonates with him. He wants to use our images for the labels for his wines. He is enthusiastic, we are cautiously optimistic (maybe even a tiny bit skeptical initially).
Sometimes you just have to have faith in the dreamers (after all we hold dreams in very high esteem).
So, the bottle looks great (if we must say so ourselves), but how does the wine taste? We’re getting to that (saving the best ’till last) still admiring the bottle here.
First of all, how cool is it that the label just has our painting on it? Just the boat, no text going across the image , embossed so it really looks 3D. Then turn over the bottle, pull out your smartphone and scan the QR code on the back. It takes you to this:
This is exactly what we imagined in our heads.
This wine deserved a special occasion and location for a first tasting:
You know all that poetical stuff they write on the back of wine bottles to describe how wonderful it is? Well this label isn’t lying. It is truly a wonderful wine. We are honored to have our painting share a bottle with it.
And it doesn’t stop here. Next comes the white!
