Artist's Description

Have you ever been lost in a photo and couldn’t stop working on it? Both the shoe and the handle of the carving tool are full of tiny holes.

I’ve lost myself in a wooden shoe that my great grandfather made and the carving tool he used to carve out the toe area. I photographed it against a rock wall.

The farmers used wooden shoes to do the outside work and left them on the steps when they came in the house. They wore wool socks and felt liners in the shoes. My Great Grandfather (1846 – 1942) was from near Bryne Norway. I don’t know just when the shoe came over to Montana, but it came without a mate.

I liked the image in so many variations and textures. I used bone and stone layers and then adjusted levels and burned and dodged. Such fun.
