|What secrets are held within?|

By far, the oldest bookmark I have in my web browser is for a 2001 New York Times interview with a watercolorist whose work has always fascinated me.
Nathalie Lecroc (“Miss Lecroc”) is a Paris-based artist who creates small watercolor “portraits” of the contents of a woman’s handbag.
Each painting is assigned a number. She calls each rendering aPetit Anthologie des Sacs et Sacs a Main. Don’t you love it?
