Illustration Friday - FEET

COLD "FEET"
When I received the email that informed me the new IllustrationFriday.com subject was "feet", I sighed. I was hoping for something more fun. But then I started thinking of odd ball ways of using this subject in artwork. I thought of "cold feet" = "you're a chicken" (also, you're scared and yellow) and thought of the runaway bride. So here it is. I had fun with it. Acrylics on canvas paper 8 x 11.
For some reason I can't upload pictures to Blogger these past few days so I'm using Flickr and the size doesn't quite fit in my blog correctly.

This is really fun! I like that you didn't just do a human bride (or Jennifer Wilbanks, although she does have a bird look to her). Great painting!
