{ an australian icon }

If you’re Australian then these boots will need no introduction. 

To everyone else,  it’s a pair of R.M. Williams boots; and these proudly adorne the feet of Australian men from cattle stations to rugby games to weddings and boardrooms alike. So there wasn’t a moments hesitation when a friend commissioned me to to create this piece as a gift to her RM-wearing husband.

I painted these a little while ago but thought I would share something different for a change, and also some progress shots of these with you…. The initial intention was actually to be a black & white ink drawing; however they just didn’t feel finished without that signature rich reddy brown licking the glossy leather. It was such a pleasure to brings such an Australian icon to life, and knowing that they live in such a lovely and happy home makes it all the sweeter. 



Thanks for stopping by!
