And how!

When I was in art school, some good advice was given regarding a great many things. One applies here. I was told that it's quite common for an artist to find himself/herself with a repeating theme, subject matter, constantly working a common angle, etc. I was told not to look at it as a "rut" that I'm stuck in, but rather something one has to just work through. The good, the bad, the ugly, you just keep chugging along until it's out of your system. Well, the boot theme is one we took on voluntarily, but now that we're in, we're IN IT until the soles are worn right through!

This first was actually done the other day, but due to the busy week, it isn't getting posted until now. So, we bring you...

"We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boot"

And the newest from today:

"WAY Long Laces" or "That Frog is Wearing Rabbit Clothes"

It really was supposed to be a bunny. And somehow a frog appeared. Wearing bunny ears, a fluffy tail, and apparently a clown nose. Shrug.

"Way Long Laces"- This is really ingenious. There is so much going on here. Is it a frabbit or a rabbog? I love the snake crawling up the guys left leg. Also, the thing on his head is great. I think that it may be a butterfly because he is smiling. Then again, it could be a ribbon stuck to his head. It can't be tied to his hair because he doesn't have any.
"We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boot"- The facial expression is so communicative. Ava has a nice grouping of colors in this one. Do we really need a bigger boot, or just a smaller foot?
