You may have noticed that a lot of my sketch objects are from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They have quite the collection of practically everything! But, as I do have shoes of my own, I thought I’d include at least one pair in my Shoe Series.
I have two pair of Crocs: a summer pair (the green, with holes) and a winter pair (black, no holes). I only wear them in the yard. The green, hole-y ones are too cold in the winter and the black, solid ones are too hot in the summer.
Sketch 072: Summer Crocs (not the Metropolitan Museum of Art, although I did search the online collection after I sketched mine, wondering if, indeed, they had a pair. None showed up. Maybe I should donate mine. Hmmmm . . . )
Here are links to some of the museum’s shoes that caught my eye.
