Today I decided to change gears for a bit. Drawing has always come easier to me than painting, and when I'm feeling frustrated with a painting it helps to get back to drawing. I found this little boot in the basement with all my still life objects. Then I found a drawing that I did of it (six years ago...) in my sketchbook. I love doing charcoal on toned paper heightened with white and this little boot was just the perfect subject for such an approach. It is size 3T in tan faux suede and it belonged to Maggie at around 3 years old. Just as meaningful to me as her portrait, but I can be a little more objective.
