Day One Hundred-Forty Nine

                                                 'Patent Leather with straps'

8 x 8 oil on panel
60.00 + 6.00 s + h

     I got tired of all the veggies and found these cute shoes at Goodwill, so thought I'd change it up a bit.   We've had snow here for so long and we've just been inside the house getting 'cabin fever'.    Maybe I'll invest in a plein aire easel so I can go outside as soon as it's warm and paint !  Does anyone order from Jerry's Artarama ?  


  1. Oh wow, this is lovely! a wonderful composition,

  2. What a darling painting! Great composition with the little shoes on the children's books. Really well done.

    I order from Jerry's Artarama all the time. I've never ordered an easel, but I order all kinds of supplies. They are exactly what they say they are, as far as quality. And they have great prices. I also order from Dick Blick. Same thing. Good luck!

  3. Such a nice feel to this painting.

  4. this is just wonderful! everything about it is so pleasing, wonderful composition and the colors are perfect. those shoes just say so much!

    i've ordered from jerry's and found them to be just fine. dick blick is my usual, but jerry seemed just as good price and delivery wise. good luck!

  5. thanks to all for the sweet comments, and the info about Jerry's.... I think I'm going for an outdoor easel with all the bells and whistles !! woo woo !

  6. I love the way this turned out! Where is the clock?

  7. this wasn't the clock one. I can't really finish that one without, you know, the actual clock ! ha ha !

  8. Sandy, this is a really nice composition and you did a really good job on it. Jerry's is my favorite place to shop..I have never had a problem there.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes, the background was painted with a knife (desperation move).
