"Junk Yard Shoes"
I painted this at our Ceta Canyon art retreat. It was taken from a photo of a junk pile in Cloudcroft, NM with other stuff around, and the were weeds grown up. After critiques from the group, I did away with some of the other junk in the photo,(that I had painted in) and focused on the two pair of shoes.The pieces of wood in the back probably should have been left out too. I had fun painting the shoes anyway!

This was taken from a photo that I took in Philadelphia.
He was statue holding a menu, and a sign at a restaurant. I had already painted the paper with an under painting, so I put him on top of it.This was also done at the art retreat in Ceta Canyon.
