Linda's Toe Shoes
oil on canvas
How good of my dear sister-in-law to loan me her shoes for a few paintings. Ballet slippers have an essence of magic. They make dancers twice as beautiful, and I know only the chosen few from another world are able to put their toes in that box and be graceful about it.
Here, I wanted to show the shine on the satin and the nature of the loose ribbon laces. I could not quite paint the magic.
