Little Sister's Sneakers

My older daughter wanted to paint with me last night, so I said why don't we paint your sister's shoes (and of course got a "look"). I painted the shoes here while she ended up turning hers into a pair of ballet slippers, which I think is great thinking outside of the box (she's 7). I threw in  a couple of complementary colors for the background this morning but it was done in one go last night and I had to tell myself to leave it alone!   Pretty fun. It is a 5 x 7 acrylic on canvas.  Please let me know any C + C.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
