Rescued a piece of basswood from a carver’s throw-away bin and decided to carve a high-top boot. With the wood being rather plain, I decided to decorate, reveal and paint the boot. Here it is, Connie’s Hiker with flower adornment.
Now the story!!!
Picture this beautiful woman with a safari hat, khaki shorts and vest, lumberjack woollen socks wearing these beautiful hikers. In the forest she is leading her troop, Abby, Ethan and a slight distance to the rear an impeccably dressed Greg with a knapsack on his back. All of a sudden Connie sounds the alarm and the troop comes to a screeching halt! They have come upon a field of colour which prompts Greg to open his knapsack , pull out his ukulele, he starts to strum his instrument and in a bold falsetto voice starts to sing….........tip toe though the tulips, through the tulips…... and soon the troop joins the chorus. A fabulous end to an arduous hiking day!
Enjoy the boots and story and to all my Canadian viewers, HAPPY CANADA DAY!
