These were SO much fun to paint!  My friend, Juli has a collection of Converse shoes.  In fact, she has so many, she can loan me a few pair and not miss them!  Imagine that!  More shoe paintings to come.

Still Life & Little Bird

oil 8x8 inches Purchase info here. This is a demonstration piece I did for a workshop back in January. I love this tiny ceramic bird. Years ago friends and I took a mosaic workshop and I quickly discovered that snapping ceramic tiles into little pieces with a hand tool was not for me. It was a fun day nevertheless, and I happened to come home that day with this little bird. It has found a place in many of my paintings since.
