Hi JJ, you certainly are on a roll with these shoes.

I am not sure that I like the way the shoe on the left is cut off, but just my opinion.

(P.S. I moved your shoe request to the reference image library. You will get better hits there than the cafe)

I love this but tell the truth now...are these shoes in your closet???

(P.S. I moved your shoe request to the reference image library. You will get better hits there than the cafe)thank you Carol you are so kind..:)
re left side me too..:( Maybe when I put my signature on it will even it up. I can't be bothered repainting it..:( Wont do that again.. Oh btw the shoe does go around the side of the canvas tho'..

Gay no these shoes are not in my closet. :lol: I have been browsing some royalty free/copyright free sites for these ref pics.

I couldn't wear shoes like that I would break my neck..:lol: ;)

I did have a pair of platform shes when I was a teenager, and nearly broke my ankle in them. I still remember "going over" that was my only experience..:p :lol:

3 paintings to go..;)


How many paintings do you guys normally paint for a series???

Hah! fabulous stacks (though perhaps not tall enough to be stacks?)

Your paintings manage to capture the sole of the subject. I love it.


PS: Sorry for the bad pun.

I thought that was the name Aussie teens gave platform shoes. You are a teenager, right? ;)
