Mabel, I cant help dwelling on how artists really see the world differently from ordinary people. It is a mystery to me how you can see a future beautiful image in a few pieces of thread and a few buttons. My granddaughter has always been impressing me when she makes a miracle out of a few things found in my daughter's boxes with threads, beads, buttons, etc. When she was little we would ask how she came to painting or modelling this or that and she would think for a minite and say, "I am an artist, this is just how I see it".

Interestingly, true masterpieces always look simple to make, but given the same materials, I would hardly create anything worth looking at, let alone, showing. When I look at this shoe, I wish you created the rest that goes with it- the dress, the lady, her hairdo... One small shoe, but so expressive, so many associations with the historic period, traditions, fashions, manners.

Happy creating! I always like to look at your works, even if I dont comment.

Podolyanka, thank you for your lovely comments, and yes, it would be a gorgeous idea to do the other bits - I can imagine a rather pretty parasol actually.... This shoe/boot was the RSN tutor's design, and I do like the deceptively simple lines of it, but I am definitely going to be doing my own designs as well. And that parasol you inspired may well be one of them!
