A La Shoe



This weekend has been a very busy weekend for me! Lots of painting and being creative. My homework for class this week was to paint a shoe. I decided to paint my favorite shoe- my black converse hanging over a chair in my kitchen. We could use whatever color palette we wanted but had to paint a shoe. I have been wearing converses since high school- which basically means FOREVER! So I knew instantly I had to paint my beloved converse. I used oil paint on wood with a number 4 Filbert brush.

I am still working on my cupcake painting for the love show and I hoping and praying that it's all done by this next week. I am probably am about 65-70% done but I really need to get focused and be productive. I always seem to reach a point in a painting that I get caught up in all the details when instead I need to just move forward... and that's were I am at with my cupcake painting.

Everyone have a great creative week. Can you believe it's already February!

No... I so can't believe it's Feb.

And I love your shoe painting. You have to hang it in your closet door. Bring the shoe gods to your closet. :)
I got love for the cons...

Why are shoes such fascinating subjects in art. They really do say a lot about the wearer and yet they sort of have their own identities.

Anyways. I LOVE the header for your blog. It reminds me of those sun prints you can make on the blue paper. Awesome!
