Beau Biden, Attorney General of Delaware and Terry

Beau Biden (son of Vice President Joe Biden) was the inspiration for my show, "These Shoes Are Made for Talking:Every Pair Tells a Story". Two years ago I heard him speak. He had just returned from his service in Iraq. As he was telling his story I imagined painting a show of shoe portraits and telling the story of that person. A little while later when I met in him in person I asked him if he would  allow me the honor of painting his boots.  He was most gracious and said yes. They mean a lot to him.
