The Shoe
 
I found this sequined shoe at a second-hand store during the year Ivan and I lived in
Medicine Hat. Within a moment I knew that the shoe would feature in my next painting.
Once I 
completed the shoe, it seemed only natural that flowers must surround it.
So, whenever Ivan 
gifted me with roses, I would paint them in as well as other
suitable blooms which came to my 
attention. The butterflies and insects are from
a natural history museum in the city where I 
sketched from time to time.
Although many of my paintings require a substantial period of 
time to
complete, this one demanded a whopping twelve months
though 
spread out over a three-year period.

Until I experienced Hsinchu, I thought I craved peace, but nothing suited me better than the
rollicking chaos of the city. The streets, crowded with people, were thrilling. From the temples
on every corner wafted the scent of burning incense that mingled with the tang of concrete
and the oily fumes from restaurants. The slashes of jungle crisscrossing the city were islands
of mystery perpetually reaching out with tropical tendrils attempting to devour the buildings
and tear up the streets. Everyone and everything danced together with vigour, knowing that
life is meant to be celebrated in the most intense manner possible.
