This may be the most interesting "canvas" I've ever been asked to paint on, and that's saying a lot for this folk artist! They came out so well, I've decided I'm going to paint at least one of the three pairs of boots I have in my own closet.
I once read about a woman seeing a message sprawled on a Paris sidewalk. It said, "The city of Paris is full of beautiful mysteries, and you are one of them." I never forgot that story. I began to think how wonderful it would be to spread love and joy by writing beautiful messages on sidewalks with chalk. That idea has evolved into the original poetry I often include on my art, and is the reason I call myself “The Sidewalk Chalk Prophet.”
