Memories -sold

oil 10x10 inches A friend commissioned me to paint these objects from her wedding. Don't know how she walks in these shoes, but they're her favorite. If you could combine a lot of difficult things to paint, this would do it: flowers, gold sequins, bronze, rhinestones, gold, beads and even glitter on the shoes which I didn't attempt. I had a lot of fun and she likes the painting. Whew!
