Shoes for Two

Shoes for Two

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

Another little shoe ATC.   I really must paint more this weekend.  Digging into the archives is fun, but it’s not as fresh and lively as a brand new painting.  “Oh look, another shoe.”   Okay…. how about a frog?  😀

(born Dec. 25, 1887, San Antonio, N.M., U.S. — died Jan. 3, 1979, Santa Monica, Calif.) U.S. businessman, founder of one of the world’s largest hotel organizations. As a boy he helped his father turn the family’s adobe house into an inn for traveling salesmen. After his father’s death in 1918 he bought several hotels in Texas, and by 1939 he was building, leasing, and buying hotels in California, New York, Illinois, and elsewhere. In 1946 the Hilton Hotels Corp. was organized; in 1948, as the business expanded overseas, the company was renamed Hilton International Co. Later diversification included a credit card company and a car-rental firm. His son Barron succeeded him as president in 1966.

    Love the frog!!! The espadrilles remind me of my trip to Greece back in college. Super paintings!

    I like it when you do tree frogs. They always seem to have character.
    I have a toad in my flower beds that I just enjoy watching so much. He or she has become huge over the years. I feel I have another “hanging around” and enjoying “home” as I do.

      Thanks, Leslie! I enjoy doing the tree frogs and usually name them as their personality develops beneath my brush. I have heard of toads that stay for years in a flower bed, but I have never had one at my house. We do have a road runner that makes my husband crazy, beating on the glass doors. 😀
