Red Boots and Umbrella

There have been days when I've poured myself into my family's needs; cooking, cleaning, chauffeuring, listening, scheduling, etc. And there have been days when at then end of it, I feel invisible. No one has noticed, acknowledged, or really seen me. The author Barbara Pym has written about such excellent women who are taken for granted by the men around them though she does it with much more wit than I'll ever manage. That is the feeling that these red boots are conveying here. This oil painting is on a 24x36" board and is yet unnamed and unpriced.--note; since this blog was posted, this painting has since been painted over. The new Red Boots and Umbrella painting was also posted. You'll notice I defined the figure more in the new piece.
