Candy Striped High Heel – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

I only got to do one small painting last weekend, because I had to work on Saturday and do my taxes on Sunday.  This means that I’ll be revisiting some paintings from the archives this week.  Anybody remember this one?  It was from an ATC exchange where I painted 24 little paintings of shoes.  It was fun!  Our subject was 24 of anything…. and I picked shoes.  I am not a shoes gal, since I live in flip flops most of the time, but I have always wanted to explore this subject.  There are so many cool shoes out there.  🙂

About Marva Collins

American educator Marva Collins pioneered progressive education for disadvantaged children. She was born in Alabama in 1936 and in her 20’s moved to Chicago, where she founded a school for children who were at risk. After one year, every child tested at least five grades higher. Many public schools have successfully implemented her methods. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and Good Morning America and she recieved the National Humanities Medal from President Bush in 2004. She believes every child is a winner until someone convinces him or her too thoroughly otherwise.

    Now THAT’S a shoe I could step into! and then fall right off of! I used to wear high heels. Now it’s all about comfort. But I do love your candy striped shoe.

    I didn’t think these looked like something you would wear, but ya never know. Thank goodness for taxes, if it wasn’t for the government, I wouldn’t know what to do with my money… that’s a joke, but I’m not laughing! Thanks Beth

      Back in the 80’s I wore high heels and business suits every day. Yuck!! Taxes are such a nightmare for a small business. I’m glad it’s all over except for the CPA filling out the forms and telling us what the damages are. **shudder**
