Lily pond shoes

I’ve been painting a new pair of shoes, this time inspired by the lily ponds at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. I was there for three months at the start of 2011, so I had some great photos to refer to.

I quite liked the design just on the toe area, so I stopped there to check with my sister, who these belong to. But she likes the idea of lily pads wrapping around the whole shoe, so I’ll finish them off tonight and bake them when it’s cooler in the evening. (see them finished here)

I appreciate hearing from you
