Today's painting of red shoes came about after I was looking in Good Will for some colored pottery to paint, I saw these red Shoes sitting on display. They are too small at size 5 1/2 and too tall but they said paint us. So that's the story. Also 4 drawings of my son that I did this morning and my fixed and finished painting from yesterday.
