These hunting boots belonged to the father of a good friend of mine. They were used in the 40s and they are spectacular. I imagine it took about 15 minutes to get them laced up.


  1. I love all your paintings, but seeing this one, I just wanted to say how wonderful it is.
    You are a truly gifted artist.
    Thank you.

    Chris – my wife and I love this piece! This is perhaps one of my favorites. I can see why you are keeping this in your private collection. Just love your use of colors. Great job!

    Love the subtle cary-through of the yellow in the bag, boot, cast shadows and wall, Chris. This is definitely a beauty worth keeping!
