For most of his childhood, aspiring artist Leon Gardner faces the trials of being an aspiring painter. From hoping for the support of his father, who believes Leon should follow in his footsteps and become an athlete, to reveling in the joy of artistic success later in his life, Leon learns the value of art and its effects on his loved ones.
As he struggles to stay true to his vocation while still making his art known, Leon is pressured to conform to the societal norms of contemporary art. In Footprints in Paint, Leon searches for the answer to the hardest question an artist must answer. Can he prove to his loved ones and the world that the source of great art is not simply the coaching of the experts, but that it lies in individual artistic inspiration?
