Work Boots

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”
– Robin Williams

Work Boots

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC on Strathmore Textured Paper

Once again, I ran out of new paintings, so I’m dipping into the archives.  I really want to do some great big shoes.  They are fun and they have so much character.  It’s funny how shoe paintings always remind people of some fond memory.

I bought my first insulated work boots in 1993.  I was hand painting truck signs for our local concrete company and it was so cold out in their shop that I finally had to break down and buy some boots.  I still have them and they look just like these.  🙂

About Robin Williams

In 2005, Robin Williams, the Oscar-winning American actor known for his wild improvisations and amazing mimicry, was voted by fellow comedians and comedy insiders as one of the top 50 comedy acts ever. He was born in 1952 in Chicago, and he first garnered attention as a stand-up comic in San Francisco. A guest role as the alien Mork on the TV series Happy Days was so popular it led to his own show, Mork and Mindy. He has starred in many successful films, including Mrs. Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting. He has three children.
