These Boots Were Made For Working
A batik painting of a pair of old boots, belonging to a friend of mine, which were standing by a door in his kitchen. I loved the old scuffed worn leather with traces of dirt on the boots. I decided it would be a challenge to try and capture the essence and character of the boots in batik. I was really pleased with the result.
I chose this title after the song 'These Boots were made for Walking'. These boots reminded me of Van Gogh's paintings of his old boots. You can tell a lot about a person by the boots he/she wears!
