i’m jealous of holly farrell’s shoes

Sigh. Love. I have written about Canadian painter Holly Farrell so many times. She paints everyday objects like chairs, bowls, bars of soap, and yes… shoes! Holly’s work is going to be featured in my book {YAY!}, and when I was going through her portfolio looking for my favorite pieces the other day, I found myself gathering up a whole bunch of her shoes… and voila, today’s post was born! ♥

    Love her work sooo much! AND she’s self-taught. That kind of talent is definitely envy-worthy. ;-)

    Very cool. It took me a couple to figure out that they weren’t photos of real shoes. Thanks for sharing this.
