custom painted toms pt 3

back in the beginning, when i kinda wanted to start an etsy shop and the whole paint your shoes things came about, i painted these awesome TOMS for a dear friend of mine (Hi Mel!) she confessed she still wears them and that makes my heart happy. i appreciate it. 
they have actually become quite popular on the internetz and over the summer, i was contacted by a lovely family that just so happened to live in the Houston area and asked me to replicate them.
i said sure, no problem. give me a couple of weeks...
and then #wittyhousereno came about and it was 4 weeks later that i was able to finish them. and so finally, here i present to you the most colorful TOMs shoes ever....


they're pretty close to the real thing...at least from what i photographed from the original pair. i had to improvise one entire side because apparently i forgot to photograph it. ha!
and below are so WIP shots.
and here's my client with her shoes. needless to say, she absolutely loved them. 
i have a pair of white shoes personally. i've had them since spring. i still don't know what to paint on them.... polka dots? triangles? i don't know...what would you paint on them?
hope you guys have a fantastic weekend! i'll be back soon to post some other shoes i've recently painted.
