Italian Shoes: A Woman Can Dream

This collage may look familiar to regular readers. It's an updated version of The Yearning, which I had been looking at for a while, rethinking it. My first impulse was to cut it down, but I resisted. Instead, I kept changing the title; it went from "The Yearning" to "Shoe Fetish" to "A Girl Can Dream" to "Italian Shoes: A Woman Can Dream."

But the other day, I was leafing through the Dec. 1940 issue of Ladies Home Journal searching for images for a food series and happened to glance up at the collage just as a shoe ad caught my eye. Aha moment! More shoes, that's what it needed. I added two that are bigger than the others and help direct the eye. Small change but a big difference. So, it remains the same size:  5.5" x 8.5" on archival mat board. {SOLD}
