Still Life - Work Boots

Work Boots 8 in. x 10 in. Oil OnPanel - SOLD

The subject is a pair of my old work boots. I have had different pairs of boots like these constantly since I was probably five years old. Paintings with boots and shoes as the main subject are pretty common historically in art. I think that Wyeth with 'Trodden Weed' or Van Gogh with 'A Pair Of Shoes' probably have done them the best (just my opinion). I've only done them once before in a drawing when I was in art school long ago. This painting actually took me two days to complete, so it is technically not a daily painting, but after finishing this I have to say that I'm really happy with it. I hope that you enjoy it too!
