The Angels Wanna Wear My . . . .

Red Shoes and Sleeping Dog - 24cm x 30cm - Acrylic on Canvas

I used to like an Elvis Costello song - "The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes" - I even bought a pair of red, patent leather shoes which I am pretty sure some angels would have desired. The shoes were too small and hurt my feet but I wore them anyway. I made the painting along with a handful of others with the intention of showing it in a new gallery near Montreal in Canada. I delivered it last week. I didn't play the song once while I worked on this picture but it was in the back of my mind almost all the time.
