Shiny Man Shoes
Painting - Oil On Panel
Doc Johnson. He was a veterinarian, large animal I think, and he appears in several of my oil paintings. As I have done in other paintings,I edited an old photo into the composition that might evoke a sense of time and space in mid century America. The hands, the watch, the feet and those long legs create a striking composition. And those shiny man shoes. I love the gesture here of this father, husband, son, brother? I really want that old soft chair for my studio. The most difficult part of this painting for me was to choose the 'right' color for that bit of background wall just at the upper left corner. Weird huh?
