Art:  Mattie's red shoes by Artist heather anne murray
This nostalgic mixed media painting features "Mattie" a young girl with confidence and spunk sporting her favourite red shoes.. the text reads "She wondered why others could not see the minute details" I painted this piece with a whimsical eye..and a nostalgic one. Although I wasn't blessed with cows in my backyard growing up..I continue to feel a connection with animals that is rooted in my childhood..Early readers featured farm animals and I was instantly in bliss..In my fantasies I saw myself in a field with friendly cattle.(.such as Mattie) and there is something about a flashy set of red patent shoes to set a girl apart from the crowd :-) I now have cows in my backyard..finally..as an adult..so sometimes our childhood dreams do come true! This piece was created using found images and text, as well as the artist's own images and acrylic paint/matte medium on canvas..
