I can see why you like painting shoes. Interesting, strong shapes- these, especially. I love the tie hanging between the two shoes. And the beautiful deep reds- yum! You nailed the perspective, too. Not an easy task....

Ralph said...

They look just marvellous but every time I see a pair of shoes like that I just marvel that anybody can walk on those heels. I have managed to walk 35 miles tis week and run 49 gues what? Not in heels like these. But I do love the painting.

Very rich! I love the deep tones against the light background.

Pam Holnback said...

Great angle, colors, values, composition.

Janice said...

Bonnie Heather said...

Carol Blackburn said...

Oh, these could be from Dancing With the Stars...........

Linda Popple said...

Wow! I like the rich colors and the perspective of seeing the shoes from behind. And the touches of blue is really nice.

Fay Akers said...

Red shoes. I had this image of red shoes in my mind two days ago. I was wondering what that meant. I believe it was to see it on your blog. I like very nice.

This pair is a winner, Kim. The detail you get with a single wide brush stroke is amazing. I love this one!

D.D said...

It's beautiful....simply beautiful.

Alice said...

These shoes look as if they are about to dance! Excellent work.... I love it. :)

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

BANG! Right out of the park with this one, Kim! I liked your 'one shoe' paintings, but this one tops everything. Such strong brushwork!

Kelley Sanford said...

You can definitely feel that the owner of these shoes are "ready to go". Lovely burgundy/red palette.

Mary said...

Really like this! The perspecive is especially good!

Starr said...

Yay, more shoes! Love the coloring of these... great job

Debbi Smith Rourke said...

Fabulous. Love the ruby ribbons and the grays too- nicely set up the bold shoes. Great composition.

Dawn Sherman said...

I love it Kim!! This one really tells a story. :)

Julie Hill said...

I just love the way you do shoes!!!! I can just see a collector having a wall of your shoe paintings...how fun would that be?

Kim said...

Fun! LOL From your lips... ; )
Thanks for all your comments folks!

Tammy Watt said...

I think we have the same pair of shoes Kim! I like the looseness of your painting - I think I got a little "too tight" when I painted my shoes. I enjoy your work! Thank you.
