Shoes

A full life includes transformation. This image began as a drawing to honor my husband after he passed away from Parkinson's. I drew this baby shoes. But as I developed the image into a design for a tapestry, it became my hiking boots. After my husband's passing, hiking became a new passion for me, bringing health and new friends into my life. This is my personal image of transformation
