Not Your Ordinary Pair Of Boots

Wildly witty and unapologetically sassy, Erin Smith's "Boots" wall art will add just the right amount of kick to your decor. The spunky piece features an antique photo of a young girl and the words "Your boots may be made for walking... but mine are in case I need to kick your ass."

"Boots" is a giclee print on canvas made from Erin's original mixed media compilation of acrylic, watercolor, ink, vintage photos of the artist's family and, of course, Erin's personal prose. Handmade in Georgia.

Erin Smith

From a sign in her kitchen, "Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten" to her artwork, Erin Smith has a knack for saying the things everyone else is thinking.

"It's really difficult to NOT be a complete bitch..right?" Erin playfully asks. Luckily, she has managed to find an outlet for her mouth in her art.

"The combining of prose and paint is an important one for me," Erin says. "I always have a notebook (several actually) where I'm writing quips or thoughts or observations. Almost all of my inspiration comes from people and the everyday situations I find myself in."

The little girl featured in the Boots wall art is actually Erin's grandmother. "She put up with so much and never said a word. I like to think that this is what she was really thinking all along and was never able to say."

Erin lives in Atlanta where she tries to balance all of the hats that a mom typically has to wear. Mom, wife, housekeeper, dog walker, personal shopper, servant, school chaperone, every-weekend-birthday-party-present-buyer, landscaper, tutor, chef...and, of course, artist.

      Comments about BOOTS WALL ART:

      I bought this product for my daughter for Christmas. I knew it wouldn't be big, because I did check the size before I bought it, but I was shocked when it was delivered. I think for [$] it could have been bigger. The box it came in was beautiful, but approximately 1/2 the size of a normal shoe box.Disappointed in MI

      I received this as a gift. I had never heard of this site before! The picture is quite quaint, but I think the price is too much for such a small item. But the uniqueness kind of makes up for that!

      Comments about BOOTS WALL ART:

      I guess I didn't read the product description very well, because it was a lot smaller than I expected, especially for the price. But, for an original piece of artwork it's perfect for gift for my recipient.

      Not as cute in person. Would be better on some sort of metal rather than canvas. Not worth [$]

      Comments about BOOTS WALL ART:

      Love it! It is small for the price, but it is a great size for me. It's in my bookcase in my home office -- if it were any bigger it would be a litte more noticeable by anyone coming into my office. You have to look for it -- but I know exactly where it is. It gives me inspiration (and a chuckle) when I'm having a hard day at work. I take one look and I start laughing my *** off!!!!! :-)
