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!
