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 designs.
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.
