My first painting of February was painted to go along with one I did in January, 'All About the Dress'. This painting reminds me of when I was a young girl I used to like to watch my father prepare for the day. The ritual of shaving and washing, the smell of soap and the fresh crisp clothing. I first posted this painting without the shoes. It was my intention to put the shoes in right from the start, but I had to borrow a pair from a friend and add them in later.
