Back to my series "My Things". For one thing I felt like having a change and secondly I had a bit of a splash out on a few new aquisitions that asked to be painted! So here's the first of them, a pair of bright green patent shoes that I spotted in Holland, designed by the famous Dutch designer "Fred de la Bretoniere". I absolutely LOVE them!

Thank you, Barbara. I even thought of you while painting this, asking myself what you might think about green shoes!
