This selection takes me back to my ancestry in Scotland and early American settlers in Maryland. I would love to own a pair of these shoes for just that reason -- but I'll settle for this painting for now. Maybe since there is a personal connection to the "tartan" plaid I had little trouble on this one from the start. I knew I wanted a more even webbed background using two greens, permanent red and quin magenta with the white lines added on top when I put the shoe into the background. I could rename this for St. Patrick's Day as well. What do you think?

Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see.
