A Pair of Love

my cousin bought a new pair of school shoes for me a few months ago 
all of a sudden
i was so in the mood of painting that shoes yesterday
so here it is.........
my 2nd try painting on shoes
this time for my own
gonna wear it to kl this week :)

the progress
1st try using fabric dye on shoes

i had to buy from the primary school department!!!

95% done
pic was taken right after the colouring was done...
the colour was still wet

done!!
actually i wanted to make both sides look like me
but the right one looked more like a boy so didn't draw the scarf :)
a couple looks unique too, isn't it?

That expression of love from your cousin
painted to be decorated with love
of your own artistic instinct
merges a pair of feelings
upon a pair of shoes
painted with a pair
of lovers portraits
to be worn with pride.

I am so proud of you dear.

If you do not mind, I am very interested to know reactions from your friends
about that only pair of shoes in the world
you wore today.

they already knew about the shoes as i uploaded the pic in www.kapasitor.net too....but still..those who dont know thought i bought it from other artist who paints shoes for sales...i got good responds from all :)

but they thought a "young-forever" girl like me looked cute in that shoes....not for them..haha....maybe their children would be ok..

Kebanggaan manusia selalu membuatkan mereka tidak sidi/rela melihat wadah wadah diri sendiri terletak rendah, apa lagi pada sepatu. Namun manusia juga perlu belajar melihat wadah wadah merendah dalam penghayatan rela redha sejati sengaja diletak pada paras serendah sepatu. Ini barangkali satu dimensi baru untuk melihat karya ekspresionisma atau impresionisma pada/melalui karya sepatu. Bagaimana anak kesayangan dan harapan ku.

huhu...sebenarnya saya lukis secara spontan....tak rancang nak lakar muka..apa lagi pada sepatu...lepas sketch guna pensel tu saya teragak-agak untuk teruskan...nak warna atau padam? nak padam rasa sayang....bukan mudah untuk saya lakar figure..saya tak pro...nak warna terus bimbang ada yang tak setuju...saya minta pendapat emak...mak kata ok je....dalam proses pengeringan...nenek angkat saya kata kasut tu cantik...jadi saya terfikir...kalau nenek berusia hampir 70 tahun itu boleh nampak seni itu..kenapa tidak orang lain...tapi semuanya terpulang pada individu...

sesekali kita perlu pandang ke bawah juga agar tak lupa diri... :)
