No Shoes Allowed

At Buddhist temples, you can't enter unless you take your shoes off. Of course, whenever I seem to go, it's always 20 degrees out. I usually wear lace up work boots so it takes forever for me to get them off and on. The larger the Temple, the bigger the shelves are for people to place their shoes. A lot of times I see hundreds of shoes outside. I drew this as part of my calender series. I'm thinking of making a scratch and sniff print to sell on Etsy.

I love the motifs that are usually overlooked...

Having to do 12 from a single place makes me have to look outside the box to tell the story of the temple. I have to look at the little details.
