Kickin' - SOLD

I have a great group of girlfriends from art college that I get together with every few months and lately one of them always has these great clothes, purses and...SHOES! to give away. So although these didn't fit me, I took them because I thought they would be so much fun to paint. Man - what a challenge! I scrubbed the sketch four times but persevered. They were fun to paint. Now that I've got the hang of their structure, they'll be showing up again ; ) Thanks D!

My grandmother wore these type in black. She would have looked awesome with red shoes like these. Great job on them.

It's funny how much I'm enjoying these shoe paintings even though I don't consider myself to be a shoe person at all. But these are just pure fun! I love that bow on top, too!

I love those "Richelieu".I used to wear a pair of burnt ones in Paris, to go to work, in the 90th years, I suppose;they made an elegant silhouette.Maybe I still have them in the attic.They were with laces, no ribbons.
Anyway, Kim, it's a striking painting, bravo!

A most fabulous painting Kim.... my grandmother had some shoes in a similar style - only with laces back then. .... These look ready to paint the town red ! so gorgeous !

You did a great job on this shoe! Glad you persevered and completed the painting. Well done!

Fabulous! This red almost shines like metallic and I love the cool magenta areas. The satin ribbin is so, well, satiny. You know what I thought when I saw this.? Dorothy all grown up...the adult version of the Ruby Slipper. :)

Wow, Red never looked so good! This is quite the shoe-stopper, Kim. I'm glad you perservered; we all got a treat because of it.
