Saturday Night Art Walk: Watercolor Patterns 1935-1942

Haven’t done a Saturday Night Art Walk in a long time. I’ll try to remember the format…

Oh yes… I’m supposed to say what I’m drinking and what I’m listening to…

Actually, I have a marathon of Big Bang Theory going on in the background. And I’m drinking a nice glass of Shiraz.

Tonight I found some cool work by watercolor artists. The subject? Quilt patterns. I enjoy artists who choose interesting subject matter. I wouldn’t have thought of a quilt pattern being depicted by using watercolor medium. But turns out, it’s been quite popular for a long time. Enjoy!

  1. Love the quilt theme. Such talent. In reverse, quilters can make such beautiful pictures, too. Have you ever been to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY?

    1. We went to Paducah a few years ago and the Quilt Museum was closed! I can’t remember why but may renovations or a special meeting? Not sure.
