Legs


The sun is shining, and the steps are warm.
I got Renee to sit outside and pose her tootsies.
She had just painted her nails, arn't they cute!?!
oil on gesso'd board 12"x6"

Thanks Jan! Renee is a sun person, so when she got a chance to get outside, I wanted to capture it! (Her tootsies have been inside all winter!)
