Walking Art


Lately, the Academy of Art's siren call has been causing me some grief.  I miss drawing, sketching, sewing and all that jazz.  I've missed doing anything artsy or creative and my body needs that.   So 
Finals week I woke up in the middle of the night and sat straight up. 
 Shoes.  
Paint them.
  I couldn't get this thought out of my head all 
break, so i finally bought a pair of super cheap plain white pumps and painted them. 
It was so much fun that I did another pair like 2 days later and just played around with adding on some fabric flowers and

 that sort of thing.

  Even though I am just in the experimental stage right now, I am really liking how they are turning out.  
We will see what will happen!
