FANCY DANCIN' DUDE!!

Had a narrow strip of Amur cherry wood. The live edge was of interest so I cut the blank to show both the outer character of the wood and the beautiful grain. I added some paint to contrast the sole and some brass buttons to emphasize the dancin’ qualities of this high stepping dude.

Hot cha cha – let’s cut some mustard, little gal!

Enjoy!

Hey Roman, that shoe has no tongue. .......... no wait a minute. It has a really big tongue!
A fanciful bit of footwork to be sure.
