Day One Hundred-Twenty Nine

                                 'Gabby and her Hightops'

6 x 8 oil on panel
70.00  + 6.00 s + h

      This is a painting of a painting that I painted back in 2008 of my brother-in-laws grand daughter.  I thought the painting of Gabby would give continuity to the pair of high tops.   I don't know what I must have been thinking !  I was going to simplify these !  Oh well, I'm glad I did the little shoes.  I always had my Drawing 1 students draw a pair of shoes WITH laces for a sketchbook assignment.  I loved the weaving of the laces, and the positive and negative shapes.  WELL... they were a challenge to paint !  Never let it be said that I let my students off the hook when it came to work-- ha !
