Art. What Woman Wants; Shoes

This painting was originally one of a trio of paintings that I had called, 'What Woman Wants' and it was a painting of a handbag, a painting of shoes and a painting of a cock. Now I know that sounds very sexist, but in Spinal Tap fashion I prefer to say sexy. It was actually more of a social statement on 'wag culture'.
This painting was an original one and I always liked it but I did do another version of it in which the shoes were brighter red, shinier and the heels were alot longer and came to a sharp, spiked point. I did this version as a present to a lady I met through some friends. Before I was introduced to her she had been described to me as a dominatrix, the full leather trenchcoat and high heels instantly confirmed she was slightly different, when she took off the coat to reveal a pvc corset I did think it was slightly unusual attire for a Monday evening dinner with friends. She was instantly a very amiable person, humorous, very social and a pretty good cook. Apart from the dress sense I can't really say she seemed so dominant or scary. After dinner everyone was joking about her and how i hadn't seen her room. Now, the things they said about it I thought was just to joke and wind me up, it wouldn't be true? Sure the lady was dressed a little eccentric but she was so pleasant, I imagined a dominatrix to be a really mean, hard faced bitch. Before I went home, I was escorted into her room.
I guess it was just an ordinary room.........for an ordinary dominatrix!!!!!

  1. About time you updated your blog Mr Rudikus. Very nearly blew my cover and spoke to you about it t'other day... I do miss the bloggy banter... As for the pic, killer heels indeed, and you've captured the 3 dimensional aspect perfectly. Your dinner 'date' with the 'lovely lady' also shows an admirable open mindedness about the finer things of life - ie sex..... marvellous! Keep it up... keep it coming... keep it rude.....
