Converse Reds & Moses Botkin February Challenge


Hope you are having a wonderful Valentine's Day with the special ones in your life.  I am sending a Valentine painting with a bit of "Red" for the day and it is also time to post the Moses Botkin Challenge paintings.  The Challenge for February was chosen by Diana Moses Botkin.  We were supposed to paint a pair of Converse Shoes.  Diana says she has fond memories of these rather fun canvas high tops.  The Challenge paintings from the other five artists are shown below. To tell you the truth this is a subject I never thought I would be painting and it made for a fun challenge.  It definitely made for, "A Painting Day".

Maintenant que vous avez toutes bien oeuvré pour ce challenge, il n'y a aucune excuse à trouver pour ne pas aller faire une petite balade ensemble avec vos belles baskets...
Bisous
