All little girls love patent leather shoes… brand new Sunday Shoes!

This painting was inspired by a magazine picture and the resulting conversation a fellow artist, Alga Washington , and I had… she encouraged me to draw my perspective of the picture and then paint it because I was using the forbidden word (can’t) and saying my drawing skills weren’t up to par to try such a piece. What a surprise this turned out to be for me… Thank you, Alga Washington!

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

  • Thanks Liz… you remember that fact too! I tried telling my boyfriend how special “new dress shoes” were to little girls and he didn’t get it. So glad you like this piece. :)
