Last night I was watching a show about the guy who discovered the Titanic shipwreck... as well as lots of other shipwrecks... and he was talking about how all that were left of the people from the Titanic were their shoes... and that they were like their grave markers.. that their bodies were long ago lost to the sea but the shoes were where they died... so... I started thinking about shoes.. and the shoes I always wear... and the shoes I NEVER wear... and what people would think of us based on the shoes we left behind...

so this piece is titled, "The Good Shoes" 24" x 48"

Great painting.
I also love you paintings of glass and marbles, they are brilliant!!!!
Congrats on being featured on Empty Easel.
