Skates with Pom-poms
This seems like a good image to post on a cold January day. I painted this in October. It was commissioned for a friend's birthday. My friend grew up in northern Wisconsin where winter activities for kids revolved around ice skating on outdoor rinks in parks. Getting new skates for Christmas and decking them out with pom-poms was a high point of the season. I used my childhood skates in the set up.
