Shiny Shoe

5" x 5"

Original Oil Painting
On Museum Quality Panel

As a grandmother who  lives too far from her grandchildren, I have learned to acknowledge and appreciate special times with them.  This was just such a moment.  This little guy's grandfather and I were with him in a tuxedo shop.  He was being fitted for a tuxedo for his all important job as ring bearer in the upcoming wedding of his aunt.  When I looked over at him sitting on the floor trying the shiny shoe on for size, I saw a moment that I realized needed to be immortalized.  

One of the greatest gifts in my life is my grandson.  Even though I was raised surrounded by brothers, he has opened up the boy world to me.  I am now an expert on so many things it would never have entered my mind to movers, locks, Harry Potter, Legos to name a few!
