IF … Shoes

Watercolor with Photoshop Effects • ©2016 Mardi Speth All Rights Reserved
This piece began as a demo for one of my watercolor workshops. While it worked in conveying the lesson, as a painting, I was about ready to toss it in the circular file. But, because it had some redeeming qualities, I decided to tinker with it in Photoshop. I like the stormy feeling that resulted … as it speaks to the passion and hard work needed to fill these shoes. What do you think?

IF … Love

Female mice are so magnanimous. They will feed and care for any pinkie or pup in their burrow, not just their own babies. If that ain't love, I don't know what is.
