Red Shoes

I have had an on going love affair with red shoes ever since I got my first pair when I was 3 years old .They were a brilliant pair of red cowboy boots that I wore even to sleep .

I remember wanting those boots more than a candy bar . I thought I might die from sheer happiness when they were given to me as a surprise present .I wore them in the summertime with shorts and little tops that did NOT match the boots at all , lol . My mother would try her best to get me to wear sandles , but I never would .

I cried when I had to stop wearing them because my feet had out grown them .I kept them hidden at the back of my closet for many years long after I had to stop wearing them .Every once in a while I would drag them out to hold them close , like long lost friends .
When I saw this painting , it reminded me of those red cowboy boots . I just wonder where those red shoes are taking the woman in the picture .
