                      24" x 18" Oil on Prepared Hardboard

My January post told of the ballet slippers found on E-bay and how much I'm enjoying the challenge of painting these toe shoes, especially the shiny ribbons!  In this piece I have attempted to paint the shoes (shoe) as if they were new.  With nieces and grand -nieces who dance, it's not too difficult to find a model. 

Is this one finished?  I’m not sure so will put it aside for a while and look at it later with a fresh eye.  All and all, I'm pretty pleased with it.

After the February post, my blog comments were spammed so now when you say something and I do so hope you will leave comments, they will require approval.  I'm sorry for the inconvenience but guess it's necessary.  Wonder if any of you have had this problem?
