11 x 14 Oil on Board
I love these little red shoes. Yes, you've seen them before and no, this is not the same painting. Fooled'ya didn't I? I had used these as my model before, when I was doing 3 little 5 x 7 paintings for a local charity event. I think these shoes have so much personality and I was excited to paint them again. Turns out, these shoes have a lot of sentimental value to the owner. She bought them in a exotic country (no wonder I liked them) and she had the time of her life on this vacation. If shoes could talk...maybe I should have titled the painting Born to be Wild.
