Mac's WWII Combat Boots

 6 x 6 oil on canvas panel

This is one of my Dad's World War II combat boots.   He was in the armored division and saw LOTS of combat - something he would never talk about to my sister and me.  My sister has one of his boots and I have the other.  They are really brittle and I don't know how much longer mine will hold out, so I decided to paint one.    This is actually my sister's;  mine doesn't look this good.  The photo was real dark so I just made up colors and highlights to please me.
