The wear and tear on the rubber bumper of a Chuck Taylor Converse shoe, tells a story of loyalty on a journey through the fragile months of youth.
These belonged to my youngest and had to be thrown out when I sadly discovered two holes in the heels of both soles! The shoes had so much character, I had to paint them, but sadly the holes themselves didn’t lend any merit to a painting. Paintings of old shoes fascinate me, but for this painting I wanted to just highlight Chuck Taylor as it is…a loyal companion in the fragile months of youth…
