Finally got something done -- yeesh!  So here's "Old Standby" -- I LOVE these sneakers. (I did another painting of them before -- just in a different "pose.")  They're very old -- made by Saucony who used to have a factory in the town over from me. Unfortunately they're gone now -- boooo!  But I just went online and found out where I can purchase this brand again -- never thought of that before, duh!  I miss having the outlet store just up the street though.  Anyway . . . I'm starting the bidding at $85.

P.S.  I just figured out how to place a Facebook "like" button at the top of my posts . . . so if you see something you like, please be sure to "like" it.  Thanks!  :)

    1. Merci beaucoup Martine. Soit dit en passant, j'ai adoré votre entrevue sur le blog de ​​Carrie.

  3. I love the soft gradations in the background that direct the eye to the shoe. And you did such a fabulous job on describing the material of the shoe by those lifted highlights!
