No Burger, Just FRYES!

This is my daily exercise today!  I am a SERIOUS LOVER of Frye boots!  These are Frye's Campus boot popularized in the 60s and 70s.  These are mine.  I own several pair of Fryes and love them all for look, comfort, fit and just for the overall feeling of fashion the never goes out of style and support of a great American shoe maker since 1863 when John A. Frye founded the company.  It's the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States.  OK, more about the painting.  Loved mixing all the oranges, browns, yellows and giving a hint of the daylight from the windows above them (not seen here, of course).  Trying to stay loose.  Fun little study!
