4"x6" oil on raymar panel • Let's just pass over the fact that I steal The Spousal Unit's shoes from the house, and talk about the painting, shall we? I painted Her other pair of ropers a few of years ago and have always wanted to paint these—Her two tone Justin ropers—even though the fringy thingies above the toes are just freaky. The dark upper part of the boots and tongue are so soft, they just kept wanting to collapse while posing for me. She Who Must Be Obeyed loves these boots, so they did not stay in the studio long. They were a very challenging pair to paint and, if I can get my hands on them again, I might take a shot at a larger painting. It will be tough, She is on Her guard now.
