Wooden Shoes


Wooden Shoes
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
Carved from wood, these six inch wooden shoes hold special memories for Rebecca and sit on her husband's desk. Rebecca has requested several copies of them for her family and to send to the gentleman who carved them for her late husband.

Oh wow; what a neat idea and you have done a marvelous job -- the shadows of the dark and light of an old worn pair of shoes -- splendid!

This is awesome! I can feel the wooden texture with my eyes. The satiny texture of the highlights really comes through. Beautiful!

Lin, this is a very nice sketch. It sounds like Rebecca & you have been doing a bit of reminiscing. Alll these special things of her late husband must bring back a flood of memories. I'm sure she is touched by your beautiful sketches.
