A Mile in My Shoes: Caregiver and Loved One

Pope Thomas stands beside my painting at the Fountain City Art Center's Open Show 2014.
This painting was inspired my a theme show invitation for "Walk a Mile In My Shoes" at Oak Ridge Art Center. I wanted to emphasize then the shoes of the one in the wheelchair and the one pushing the wheel chair because both have a different perspective on what "In My Shoes" represents. This oil painting is monochromatic in burnt umber and is 24x48.
