"Colorfuly Arty Shoe" , Time Away From Home, Lynn Cohen


I bring you my traveling shoe bought while traveling in Oregon now in living color!
Came home from work at lunchtime to paint the drawing I did over breakfast this morning!
 
Want to see me with a very large head?
 
Tommy Kane, an artist who will be teaching at Sketchbook Skool in the coming weeks, and whose art I greatly admire "Liked" my drawing of Uncle Harry on the SK Facebook page!
I will be unbearable to live with forever more!
 
Ta!

    1. Thanks Sirkka, well, I did wear them to the art workshop I took from Seth Apter in Oregon. Not sure anyone paid them much mind. But I felt like a cool, funky, old woman/former Hippie! LOL

  5. I'm sure people will be asking where you bought your shes when you wear them. Perhaps you should send a photo to the manufacturers and they might take it up for production! Great sketch and the wow yellow explosion around the shoe too. I love it. Like Sirkka I am a Tommy Kane virgin, but I send my congratulations too.

    1. Well, Jez I am stoked that you thought I painted them myself. When I saw them I felt I had! Or could have. And that is why I bought them. You should seek out Tommy Kane's blog and art. I'm sure you'd admire it too; and Danny Gregory as well, in case you haven't met up with him and his art yet. He's the one who started Sketchbook Skool. I admire the art of both these guys.

  6. Looking back I realised I had missed the drawing post because I was working backwards. Srry, I thought you had drawn the designs on the shoe.

    1. I accept that as a huge compliment. Shoes and design by Converse however! ;-)

  7. Oh these are right up my alley. Love your shoes. I have two pairs of Converse. One pair is the regular Chuck Taylor and the other I had special made with my name on them and they are ""Lime green".:) I did a post on them before. Love your shoes, great work on both of them.
