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.

Pope Thomas, my husband, standing beside my painting of him called "Post Stroke Enlightenment". This painting won third place in the theme show "Illumination" at the Fountain City Art Center in Knoxville Tennessee. His stroke happened December 18, 2007. He no longer has to use a wheelchair, but his right hand his still paralyzed and he still has a communication disease called aphasia.

With your head held high and a smile on your lips, I know that you appreciate and love me for all that I am doing for you without ever saying a word. Throughout it all, I have learned a loving humble servitude and therefor you have made me a better person for it.
