Last year or maybe the year before my mother gave me my first pair of baby shoes. They were moccasins. I am of Cherokee decent, so I guess that makes sense. As you know if you have followed me for very long my family ties mean everything to me; I got that from my mother. So I know what a sacrifice it was for her to give them to me. We are all SO sentimental! So, as a gift I painted them for her and gave the painting to her the next Christmas. While here at my parents house I ran across the painting (sitting on a shelf in my room with my sons first shoes in front of it) and decided to share this bit of mushy'ness with you. This was painted on a 6x6 wrapped canvas that I painted around. I've always wanted to do them again, and I had the idea while here to photograph my children's first baby shoes and do a series! Yes, I figured I'd let my mother have my children's first shoes since I had the children...Besides I knew they were in excellent hands and if I ever needed them back I could have them.
The photo I wanted to share with you all for a bit of inspiration is a simple one of aspen leaves. I think it would work well in just about any media. It seems like a puzzle to me. So, as with the others you are welcome to take it and do with it what you wish.
A hearty welcome to my newest follower! We are so close to our next
