The Knot by IleanaHunter The Knot by IleanaHunter
This is an anniversary pressie for my husband :heart:

I've never been into self portraits, but I thought our battered shoes which have walked the streets of the world would be rather poignant.

A lot less than the shoes, actually. Not as difficult as they look.

Oh. People hardly ever attempt to draw floorboards because they presume it would take loads of time and patience. I've never seen floorboards as good as yours before.
