When composing this piece I had it in my mind these shoes somehow coordinated with my new strawberry plant. My little helper thought so, too. She was trying to arrange the leaves so they looked just perfect in the picture. Oh, what would I do without her. I consulted with her again while I was working on the piece (as I was having a moment of frustration painting the plaid) she thought it might look groovy if I painted the shoes red to tie back into the strawberry that was just starting to peek out. Do you think my consultant was right?
