The Wonderful Shoes Show Up Again !!!

First I would like to welcome March into 2011.   Here in our part of Texas March means WIND and lots of it.   It has not let us down,  with gusts to 60 miles an hour I think March has arrived.  March does bring spring so that is absolutely a plus.

I hope you remember these wonderful shoes from a few posts ago.  I love them but unfortunately they don't fit, they are to wide and way to long but Eldon said keep them anyway.   One of my young artsy friends Suzanne Clemm Wheeler said  " Annette just paint them " So I did  keep them and the sit proudly on top of my scrapbooking cabinet. Taunting me with their splendor and saying ha ha you can't wear me.  They are from England and European sized but I have had some before but I just guess it is not meant to be.  

My sweet art buddy Marilyn Parigian gave me a prompt of shoes---so shoes it was and this pair was the ones that would be immortalized.   Paper paintings would be the media.  Thanks to Elizabeth Nelson for the inspiration.  I know I have said this before but I love this method of painting, it is just to fun.  Well, most of the art is fun to play with and just doing it right or wrong is good for the soul and helps you not think or the trials of everyday life. 

The sketch done with a mere pencil.  I am recycling a canvas that was a blub up of a printing job.  Gotta do the recycling bit, use to call it just making do  but now has a fancy smancy name.  

The blocked in stage of the painting, do have to remember not to fall in love with the blocked in stage. 

The finished beauties.  I did change the blue part of the shoe to a less green color and added some cute polka dots that were on the bows. 

There you go THE SHOES !!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping in and seeing what is going on in my world today.
