I sometimes get reference photos from an online, royalty free photo sharing sight called Morguefile. I try to use mostly images I take but there are those times when I need some inspiration. When this happens I will sometimes peruse the Morguefile to see what strikes my fancy. This image has been saved in a file I call 'Possibilities' for a few years, actually and when I came across it I knew it was time to paint it! I love everything about it.. the perspective, the crop, the upside down text, the colors, the shadow... and of course the toes!
The title comes from my hubby (who has been a great help during this 30 in 30, as always) who said it reminds him of the music video from the Talking Heads of the same name. I know the song, don't know the video.. I will be checking it out though!
