Big Shoes....part 2


I am so excited!!! I just heard from my brother. The shoe painting was a hit! The presentation last night was supposed to go something like this (at least that was the plan).

If you were a football fan, I could say it's like (a player) taking over for Bear Bryant. But, you don't like football. If you were a basketball fan, I could say it's like (a player) filling in for Michael Jordan. But, you don't like basketball. So..... here's something you might understand... and Big B presented the painting of the REALLY BIG (Christian Louboutin inspired) SHOES to her in a Neiman's shopping bag. She recognized the CL design...loved the bold bright colors, and declared to the 70 or so in the audience that this painting was going to hang in her law office.

Success!!! I am really stoked....
Jane

Oh I just KNEW she'd love them - - - how could she NOT, they are GORGEOUS!

(said very quietly - - - Bear Bryant was a football COACH, at Alabama - - - remember the iconic herringbone black and white hat???)
