I was inspired to paint this scene after visiting the Tuff City Skatepark in Tofino, BC a number of years ago (after gnawing at me for years, I finally got around to painting it).

Also, the condition of the shoes struck me as an indication of the time and dedication required by their owners to perfect their amazing skateboarding displays.⁣
