this is one of my favorites. every once in while, i paint something that becomes my new favorite. it doesn’t happen very often, maybe like one in every 10 paintings. i think this painting will always have a special place in my heart. the inspiration came from looking at a friend’s wedding pictures. she actually got married in a fun dress like this one, and yes she wore polka dotted shoes. she took several photos of her feet during the wedding. when i saw one of the pictures, i knew immediately that i had to paint it. it just looked too fun to pass up! i love how it turned out… and the best part is that my friend loves it too! i was so happy that i was able to capture the spirit of her wedding and the picture.
