This was painted for our 10th and last (so they say) grandchild, Hazel Marie. This is a two panel painting is called a diptych.
Of course, her name is hidden in the wings and I hope she has fun finding it when she gets older!
So, I went to the shoe store and pulled out some georgeous shoes that I could NEVER in a million years possibly wear. I took some pictures and put the shoes back.
What woman has never had a pile of shoes like this in their closet?
My challenge was to get the blue shoe to look like suede…
It was a fun moment when I decided to sign the painting in the insoles of two of the shoes like the “designer”!
This was a quick, painterly study of some lemon wedges I cut for lemonade one day. Really enjoyed painting this … and also enjoyed the lemonade!
This was painted specifically for my dear husband. He is a pastor and has about a million books! Actually some of his favorites are loosely represented here. Today this painting hangs in his study … hence the title!
This canvas was an opportunity for a new free style of painting! It was so much fun to represent many images of fall and Thanksgiving in an abstract fashion. I know there are not blue leaves but it seems to work in the composition. It was fun and I hope to do another soon!
We had been streaming a lot of the show “Heartland” lately and I had become enamored of cowboy hats! Hence this kind of western painting! Now I just need to get myself a pair of cowgirl boots!
