What a night... - SOLD

A second painting of my 50s heels. I've realized I adore painting shoes. Or maybe it's just the pretty ones ; ) Who knew? Hmmm...I feel a thrift store shopping trip coming on!

I absolutely love both of these shoe paintings! Really super job. The satin just shines and I love the soft color palette. Beautiful!

At a first glance, I thought they were ballet slippers! But they are the perfect, dainty pair of 50's heels! I love the little bow detail...

Kelley Sanford said...

What fun! Now you're inspired me. Gotta do a "accessory" painting for a charity. Thanks for getting me going.

Ralph said...

Yes it must be a girl thing but go for it your love of them comes through in the painting.

I LOVE these shoes! Seriously how do you make something like a shoe look so pretty? I mean sure shoes are pretty, and these ones really are, but you just give it that something else, you make it sing!
