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 !
