"These Shoes Are Made For Talking: Every Pair Tells A Story"

Here is the book I did for my upcoming show. "These Shoes Are Made For Talking: Every Pair Tells A Story"! I have painted eighteen portraits of shoes and told eighteen stories. I hope you can come to the opening reception March 16 from 6 - 9 pm. at the James Gray Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave., Bldg. D4, Santa Monica, CA., 310-315-9502. The show runs from March 16 to April 21. The book will be for sale at the gallery. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of my paintings at this show will be given to the non-profit Soles4Souls.  A Nashville-based charity that provides new and gently used shoes to those in need.  A pair of shoes for someone who doesn't have any can be life changing.

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.
