martine's roses pantoufles #1

martine's roses pantoufles
french for martine's pink slippers
9x12 oil on canvas panel
I wanted to paint ballerina flats that also had an abstract quality - such as perhaps the inside of the shoe - maybe? (#1 oh no - there are more to come).

Très délicates ces ballerines... Tout comme un chausson à la framboise, je les mange des yeux!!!
Je les aime d'autant plus qu'elles portent mon prénom!!!
Je vous embrasse fort,

Very interesting portrayal! Its like the slipper is waiting for a foot...who's foot we wonder?
Nice shadows and reflection.
