Summer of color, Paint party Friday, ICAD

This is my contribution for paint party friday and 
the summer of color over 
at Kristins blog!
This weeks combination is Citron Green and Turquoise.
I used acrylic paint, then digitally added words and 
turquoise lines  for some pop to my whimsical flowers!
I decided to do a series of shoes for ICAD. 
Although the shoes I've done so far are all from imagination
a few pairs are a bit of an amalgamation of ones I own or
ones I'd want! Some painted I don't even like!

I can't believe I wore a pair of shoes similar to these 
when I was a teen. Back in the day they were called
Wallabees.  Probably the only pair of brown shoes I 
have ever owned!
I love shoes but I'm restricted to comfortable shoes now!
The days of sexy heels are gone for me.
I hate socks and can be found all year around with bare feet!
 
Unless it snows then I will cave and wear a sock.
Even though I have several  colorful slip on wedge style
shoes I tend to gravitate to  my really comfortable
 black wedge style thongs flip flops
with a lots of bling on them.
 I would buy these pink shoes for sure...they're my style
along with the above purple ones!

 Instead I live vicariously through my daughter 
who on special occasions wears heels. 
For the most part she likes only comfy flats 
and owns several pairs of very nice comfy boots. 
 Even though she was five when mom passed,
 she still manages to buy the exact style my mom wore!

When my daughter was a toddler I cleaned her shoes daily!
I also washed my huge kitchen floor every night before bed....
what was I thinking??.....can't even believe I was that anal!!
Beardo would love a pair of kelly green shoes!
He now owns pink,red, purple, green,yellow,
shoes and converse runners that scream Artist/Musician!
What do your shoes say about you and what are your favorites????


Thanks to everyone who left loving kind comments last week. 
I appreciate all your wonderful support. It seems to smooth
out those rough patches...thank you so much!!

I love shoes - much to my husband's dismay :) This collection is just lovely!! And.. love the SoC painting.

Faye said...

Loved your SOC entry, Sherrie. Really a beautiful combination of colors. As for your shoes, what a wonderful array of paintings. I am sending you an email with a photo of my new shoes I got via Amazon. I have worn this version of Aerosoles for years. My email will be mscw...... in case my name doesn't show up.

Leigh said...

Linda said...

great SOC project-I love those colors!! And the shoes-oh my-wonderful!!! I have always been drawn to shoes with color and used to buy them (with heels) when I worked and was much younger :)Now I too prefer flats or bare feet. Fun post!

Valerie-Jael said...

Beautiful piece for SOC and love your shoes - great idea! Hugs, Valerie

Kim said...

I always love a post the shows shoes, love yours! We always called flip-flips, just that, flip flops. I thought thongs was a more modern term. Maybe it's a regional thing?HPPF!

Dianne said...

yes, I was wondering when they became flip-flops instead of thongs...probably when that skimpy lingerie became popular...enjoyed your stylish footwear!

Gloria in CA said...

Oh how cool these flip flops are and your contribution to SOC is also awesome. That's a good idea, combining the two. Hmmm I may do that next week. Great colors as always. I've always loved flip flops. I remember Oprah made them pretty popular. Thanks.:)

Corrine at sparkledaysstudio.com said...

Those pretty in pink wedges are quite swell. Flip flops would serve my casual life better, but I need slides! Fun shoe post. Happy PPF xox

Rita said...

These are so fun! I love them all. I used to wash the floor a lot more when my kids were little...maybe it's because they are on the floor more. But now I have another Golden Retriever and I find myself mopping (or swiffering) all the time. I hate the blonde dust bunnies. I forgot what that was like...

Jez said...

I love your SOC painting, you have used the citron/turquoise so well, when they are colours that don't seem made for pairing. And all those shoes! I love those pink spotty ones. Yes, buy Beardo a great pair of green froggy shoes!
Keep smiling and keep us happyvwith your lovely colourful posts. XXX

Shahrul Niza said...

What adorable shoes!!!. I'm enjoying the story as much as I enjoy their unique designs :).

Joyfulploys said...

I love your idea for the shoe theme...all your cards are great!!!

Tracey Fletcher King said...

I love shoes, and as the weather has finally turned cold... well by our standards anyway I have my trusty clogs out... they are leather, paint splattered and beaten up but I love them... fun creations... and I did your mug... will be blogging about it tomorrow along with the others from the last few days... it was great fun to paint...xx

sharon said...

Love your shoes, especially the pink ones, Ha, we call thongs or flip-flops, jandals in nz! These days I wear whatever I can get my feet into with comfort rather than worrying about looks, signs of age I suppose. I love socks especially in winter!

Deepa Gopal Sunil said...

Haha...that's a gorgeous display of shoes...Love your work Giggles. It always spreads a smile across :)

kat said...

Hello again! Your shoes are all so happy and comfy, I love all your bright happy flip flops! I love simple and comfy, just now I'm wearing my birkenstocks, so great for the summer!

Jane Wetzel said...

lol awesome foot wear! I would like some myself! tfs

Natasha said...

Oh my gosh. I love your ICAD series. :) I will be looking forward to seeing your cards throughout the challenge.

Deborah Weber said...

Love your cards - what a wonderful theme! I'm convinced red shoes are magical, but I'd really like a winged pair like Mercury wore.

Sharon Fritchman said...

I love all of your works of art here! They are amazing and so true!!!! I love how you used the colors for the SOC!!!!

Prairie Jill said...

Love your ICAD series and your Summer of Colour piece! Great work.

aimee said...

I'll take a pair of those green shoes, pretty please!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I definitely think that shoes say a lot about people. You may recall the post where I posted a photographic self-portrait with part of my boot collection back in April. Blessings!

Anne Manda said...

I want those green shoes, too! :) Great paintings, love the colors! :)

Dawn said...

So cute! Love all your shoes--especially that pink polka dotty one! :)

denthe said...

Love your idea of doing a series of shoes, especially when you add those quotes to it. I have one pair of heels that I like, but they're really thick gheels that I can easily walk on. But mostly I love my comfy flat shoes, all kinds of colours but never black ....

Paper rainbow said...

Great shoes! I'm with you on the sock thing, the only trouble is my feet get so cold, so it is nice finally to throw them aside and rejoice in the warmer weather! I like the pink ones with the flower, they are my type of shoe! :)Glad you have cheered up, your shoes this week are full of joy!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I came to see both the ICADs as well as your SOC entry. Wonderful shoes. Like you, I have shoe issues, but you have dug up some pretty HAPPY ones, including the artist one.

Christine said...

lovely soc entry, and great ICADs. At first I thought ICAD was some kind of software, lol, I've been seeing this all over the place.

Kristin said...

Haha! I wash Kendra's shoes before she wears them too :) SO happy to have you playing along with us - I love to have your bright spirit at the SOC and LOVE seeing what you come up with, this being no exception. Love it, xoxo

Erika Nittel-Traser said...

Dear Happy, I love your shoe paintings. It is such aspecial theme for the most of us :) I am glad to see this. Your first one is wonderful too, love the words!
Hugs
Erika

miz katie said...

Love your series, Giggles!! My favorite shoe is slippers!!! Soft and comfortable. I could never walk in heels..hangs head in shame. haha

JKW said...

These paintings are so much fun, I love all your shoes and comments. I hate shoes in real life. . . never wear them unless I have to. . .then it is cole hahn sandals or Nine West suede walking shoes. . . very few shoes I can wear at all. Blessings, Janet PPF
