Winter is still winter, no matter how optimistic I am about the coming of warmer days. We're in for another round of snow this weekend, and I'm wondering where are we going to put it? This is a poorly shot photo taken by me with my vintage cell phone, as I was driving through a parking lot. That's a lotta snow there!

Matisse loved patterned rugs, so I'm sure if he wore sneakers, this might have been one of his. Such an odd name. Sneaker. Where did that come from anyway?
I just looked it up and here is what I found: "Keds were first mass-marketed as canvas-top "sneakers" in 1917. These were the first sneakers. The word "sneaker" was coined by Henry Nelson McKinney, an advertising agent for N. W. Ayer & Son, because the rubber sole made the shoe stealthy or quiet, all other shoes, with the exception of moccasins, made noise when you walked." - Mary Bellis

Working in watercolor is a truly liberating experience. You can't erase, so you either accept mistakes and embrace them, or you don't work in watercolor to begin with! Purchase this tiny original painting here.
