Shoes and sunset


New shoes "TOMS": Living in Maine it is inevitable that I finally have to put away my flip-flops. So now that old man winter has blanketed New England in cold darkness, I am wearing shoes, but not socks...yet.

I saw these shoes at a boutique in town. For every pair of Toms shoes that are purchased, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. "ONE for ONE". That is so cool and how cool are these gilded gold herringbone shoes. I also ordered glitter black. Then I started thinking I should order white canvas and paint them...
Beautiful sunset last night over the city. I quickly sketched with conte´ crayons and ink.

Love those shoes! And you certainly treated to a beautiful evening sky last night. Quick thinking to capture it so well in your sketchbook.

A lovely idea! And, yes, painting your own might be fun. (I used to stitch and paint plain white tennis shoes.)

Cute shoes, and what a nice idea that is to give shoes to needy children. I've never heard of that company before but I'll look them up.

The shoes are excellent! You can really see the molded shape, the inside is cool. And I like the splashy background! I like the ink work on your skyline also.

I've heard of TOMS shoes! Gives extra incentive to buying a pair in every color!
