Smith on her Shoes
The painting is a "redo" of an earlier painting that didn't quite work for me. There was enough about it that I liked so I kept it for several years and would occasionally take a look at it to see if anything struck me as a possible improvement. It finally dawned on me that it needed drastic action. I changed the tutu from white to black, repainted the background and foreground, worked more detail into the hands and feet and re-cropped the piece from a 30x40 to a 20x40. Most every square inch was repainted. I'm offering the companion life drawing to the buyer of the painting. Email me for a price quote.
