Well, I just couldn’t resist the temptation to render a painterly impression of my old comfy shoes. They really sparked my creativity last week, starting with a quick sketch in the sketchbook then scribbling the start of what could easily become a new short story. Within a few days, I had started painting them, finishing them the following day. I was pleased with end result and will be having the painting framed next week. I’ve submitted this painting to the Meffan Winter Exhibition so here’s hoping they will have their debut locally very soon. Sadly, the comfy old shoes gave up the ghost a couple of days ago. If the painting sells then I shall have to look out for another pair of comfy shoes …….. or perhaps I should look for cosy slippers now that we are slipping into winter.
