I have always been drawn into Mark Rothko’s paintings. The subtlety of color, the depth of layers and the mood they evoke, how do you not envelop yourself into his work?  It is a little how I feel when I look at these shoes. The texture, the colors and the rich tones that you can only achieve from making shoes from suede or nubuck.  Do you see the similarities?
