Sexy Black Dance Shoe
June 7, 2010
18" x 24"
Acrylic on Canvas Board
This is a beautiful new shoe of mine. It poses so well for me and when I put this shoe on, with it's companion of course, I have to do a little spin. It's strappy and sexy and carries it's own persona that says 'Dance with me, let the night carry you away to endless possibilities!'. The obvious response is why the hell not?
I painted this shoe to get people to look at it. Where will I go with these shoes. For all you know I could be wearing them right now. Maybe I wear them while I paint. Who knows where I will wear them.
I must admit I like painting shoes. It is kind of odd because it feels like I am doing a different type of portrait. We relate shoes to it's wearer. It's what shoes represent and what they remind us of that makes them a meaningful subject matter.
I will have this painting for sale at the Whyte Ave Art Walk in Edmonton, AB (that is if it isn't sold by then). I will be there with many of my paintings from July 16-18, 2010. I will also have my gear setup to paint on site. You can check out my profile and other artist through the Whyte Ave Art Walks Website: http://www.art-walk.ca/gallery/artist.php?id=701&year=2010
I will post more about the event soon.
