Painted Shoes

Last summer I bought a pair of plain white canvas shoes from Old Navy.  My goal was to decorate through handpainting. They reminded me of Keds(TM), which everyone wore back when I was a kid.   Do people still wear Keds now? The reason I did not get to paint the shoes was simply because I had baby no. 3 in August 2017.   Baby Nate put a big stop a lot of personal painting pursuits for a while! So I have finally been able to let loose and paint these shoes.   You can see I'm using a lot of  freehand doodling , and  geometric designs. I also wanted to incorporate  floral imagery , swirls , and some primitive mountain design s. It's been a fun project with Posca paint markers, Sharpie markers, and lots of imagination. I'm well on the way to finishing shoe no. 2 to make the pair.  Can't wait to wear these babies! Thanks for being a big part of my art blog.
