Ms. - 052
Each Houston Llew Spiritile is carefully handmade using a series of intricate stencil techniques. From the beginning, Houston’s vision for his enameled artworks drew from the beauty of simplicity. He sought after an imagistic theme for his work rather than pursuing the abstract often seen in other enameled wall art. The image is just the beginning - each piece is paired with a quote around the sides to create an inspiring story through words and images in glass.
"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe
I was wandering through Neiman Marcus by the shoe department, and this lady's shoe fell like this and I saw a "M" & a "S" (For Ms.)... As I was staring at the shoes when the associate helping her tapped me on the shoulder. I looked up and the poor woman was practically gasping at me; like I was some creep fulfilling a foot fetish...I thought about explaining myself, but instead just sincerely apologized as I left.
