Bronzed Baby Shoes

This was on my list of 100's of images waiting to be painted. I guess Mother's Day brought these shoes to the forefront. These were my baby shoes, bronzed after I outgrew them. My Father found them and sent them to me for Christmas a couple years ago. What a sweet gift. What Baby Boomer didn't have a pair of these? Do parents still do this??? This 6" x 8" gallery-wrap oil on canvas is available on my website http://www.dianemorganpaints.com/

Boy this brings back memories. I think metals are too expensive now for the masses to get something like this. What a treasure.

I hadn't thought about the cost of metal. I guess you're right, Sheila. Stealing copper seems to be the big thing these days.

I'm so glad to hear that you, too, have 100's of images waiting to be painted. Mine are both in my computer files and my memory files (this is harder to ignore as they scream to get out). Great painting. I wonder just where my baby shoes are now?
