Robert’s Biking Shoes

Robert's Biking Shoes

Robert’s Biking Shoes












On our recent biking tour of southern Utah, we went by the Bingham Gallery and the Thunderbird Foundation just outside of Torrey and on the way to Mt. Carmel. We were sagging past some road construction and I talked a few people into making a quick stop into the gallery. One of the ladies found the perfect painting for her husband. It was a small original oil painting on board of a pair of hiking shoes.
“I’m going to buy this for my husband.” She was so excited. He was outside and she was going to surprise him. He walked into the gallery. I had the painting in my hand and was ready to run interference but she asked her husband for a 10 dollar bill because she didn’t have enough change. One of the owners of the gallery was so excited that they liked her painting. She had said that the painting was Seven-Fifty. Robert’s wife thought great. What a bargain. The owner said, “No $750.00. That was a bit more than Robert’s wife wanted to pay.
We had a good laugh about it. She had been so thrilled. I told her if she had a pair of Robert’s hiking shoes, I would paint a watercolor of them for her. They didn’t bring a pair of hiking shoes because, after all it was a biking trip, so I painting Robert’s biking shoes.
