Silver lining- Boot walk - Artist designed award boots

I was asked by Lourdes Hernandez to design a boot to be used as an award for the MD Anderson boot walk.  Lourdes brought the boot to my studio.  As I was walking her to her car, she told me about her three battles with cancer.  Three battles; and what she talked about was learning what was really important in life.  Her story and her positive attitude inspired my boot — Silver Lining.


First I painted my boot white.   


I silver leafed the inside.
