"The Red Shoe"
original oil paintng on linen, 16x12 inches
This looks like it will be my valentine painting with all the red. What a fun piece to paint! I knew that I wanted to paint something with some red and white in it. The search began. First, I found some beautiful roses for a bargain price at the local grocery store. Really! A dozen red roses for ten dollars. Next, I headed to the local thrift store. One of my favorite places to find fun objects to put into my still life paintings. I also check out the children's section for any bargains for the grandkids. Wow! What a find! A sweet pair of red shoes that would serve well in a still life and also be a cute find for my youngest granddaughter, Annabelle.
The painting is finished and drying - that red is going to take forever! Now to send the red shoes to the wee one. Happy Valentines Day!
