Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

Always Untied

email me if you want this little painting

This month posed a little challenge for me, but I finally conquered CONVERSE shoes! None of my neighbors had any and it took me awhile to track some down without having to buy a pair myself. However, after seeing all the cute styles when I looked online, I kinda want a pair now. Wonder how comfortable they are? Anyway - I love the paintings this month. Very fun and creative.

what a fun series!!! I love these. You can buy Chucks through Utrecht art supplies and the markers to paint them! I saw them in our local store not long ago. Kind of expensive.

robin, i love your sneaks! great job. wasn't it fun? they're very comfy although provide little support and there's only the canvas of the shoe, but they're too cool.

What a wonderful painterly piece you did for this Challenge, Robin! The loose laces are perfect for your energetic and economic brushstrokes.

Love it, love it!

Love the loose brush strokes...really nicely done!

beautiful, I love the first one. I think the looseness of your stroke just makes it perfect. Keep up the great work!
