Fantasy Flamingo Boots

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

Fantasy Flamingo Boots – Watercolor and Ink

This is one I have not shown you before.  It’s really only a crop of a larger painting, since I’m doing the shoe thing this week.  That is actually a pink flamingo wearing these boots.   See the knobby knees?  I would wear these boots… okay, maybe not.  I am afraid of heights.    😀

About Mark Twain

Samuel Clemens, the iconic American humorist and writer, is better known by his pen name Mark Twain. He was born in 1835 in Missouri. He worked at several jobs, including steamboat pilot and miner. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper, and other successful novels. His writing captured a very American vernacular and flavor, and helped create a distinctive American literature. He died in 1910.

    Haha! Oh my gosh, these are hilarious. Way WAY too high for me also, but if they come out with a version with a 1″ heel, I’m all over it! So much cool stuff going on in the background, too, I look forward to seeing the rest!

    Did you get much of a chance to visit some of the other Illustration Friday entries? It was a rather rough word this week, but still lots of great entries!

      Thanks, Cindy! I didn’t get a change to see more than a half dozen or so IF entries. I am so completely covered up at work that I can barely catch my breath. Maybe next week will be better. I have had an increase on blog visits, tho. Probably from IF people. YAY!!
