Lil' Feet Program







Thirteen Art Mundo artists volunteered to transform retired St Lucie County Fire District fire boots into works of art, to be placed in Sea Coast banks

to collect money for Lil' Feet, a program run by the St. Lucie County Fire District to raise money to provide shoes for kids starting school.

The boots will be on display at Art Mundo until June 22.

An reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. June 13.



The exhibit will be located in Art Mundo's Underground North Wall Gallery at 111 Orange Avenue, in Fort Pierce.
"Lil' Feet" was Founded nearly 18 years ago, the program gives about 1,800 free pairs of shoes to students each year. Donations can be placed in the boots.
I painted one of the boots, mine is in oil.  It was a very nice surface to paint on!  Here are the two sides of my boot.

I think this one is finally finished!

You can scroll down and see where I started this one.  There was more tweaking to do than I thought, managed to spend the whole morning on it.  Darkened her clothing, little more highlights on the jewelry, did some more work on both their eyes, noses, etc.  My husband said to finish it up, you only have five minutes of work on it.

Daily Painting 1412 Neon Banyan

I started out with an abstract background with this one and picked out the tree trunks and branches to make a jungle forest scene.  Its 8 x 10, oil on masonite.  All brushwork for a change, no painting knife and not much texture.  I felt like doing something different for a change, it was a fun painting.

Daily Painting 1411 Serene Sands Indian River Scene

This is by the Indian River at the Old Fort Park site.  There is a stream of water that flows under Indian River Drive and goes out into the river, this is that spot.  Its interesting because you can often see large fish in the stream.  This is looking towards the bridge and downtown Fort Pierce but I went back in time before all that and left out the bridge and town.  The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.
