Wicked Cute Italian Shoes, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

After a long shopping day in Lucca, Italy my friends and I unwrapped our treasures. I bought these for my daughter. Wondering if she would like them I asked Sharon to try them on. She stuck her feet up in the air and said "These shoes are wicked cute, I should have bought myself a pair!" I snapped a picture, (glad I did) and was able to borrow the shoes back from my daughter to paint.  Sold

Bit by Bit, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

Veterans Day 2011
Thank you for your service!
I started this painting on July 4th of this year; these horses were on parade on our street. I took several photographs and started the painting that day while the memory was still fresh. The tack detail took a long time to accomplish, at one point I set the painting aside in frustration. Perseverance won out in the end and I finished it today.
