This painting, Shoes, is now available for purchase on my Etsy site as well as as print through my Zazzle account (here).
For those who don’t check my art blog often I thought I would mention here as well that I have a new finished painting and this one is for sale, though hubby is considering keeping in the family.
Those of you who have been reading a while may recognize it from the photo a friend of mine took a few years ago of the girls.
On another note, there are some decisions going on in our family right now that we could use prayers for wisdom and peace. Not going into it right now but please be praying.
Once upon a time, several years ago, a friend of ours was just starting out in the photography business. She was building her portfolio and so took a slew of wonderful photos of our family–the first we had had one since Rach was a baby. Those photos remain the only photos of our whole family we have, and are still favorites. (Two of them are under children on her site–one of Rach alone and one of the girls together.)
She took one of my all time favorite shots of my girls–one that captures them right down to the toes, literally. You can see it in the top left corner. For some time I have wanted to do a painting of it, I have tried several times and couldn’t pull it off. (I could NOT do shoes at all.)
This time, however, it is coming together. I am so excited that I decided to share it before I finished it. 🙂 In fact, I am awfully tempted to leave Rachel’s shoes and legs unfinished. There is something fascinating about it in pencil though I think I will finish it.
- I am in the midst of a huge blog design change. Huge I tell you. I am finally getting all my eggs in one basket but it will take me awhile to get it figured out then organize it all. In other words I have three websites that will soon all be combined in a way that should simplify things and make it easier for people to find me and my various work.Read More
