Peter Lippman and Christian Louboutin Collaboration

We all have out rituals.

Mine is before I paint I sit down and look at my tumblr.

I love seeing what other people collect, I see things that I would not normally see

and I collect images for my own image bank.

Each image I collect holds some form of wealth for a future painting.

I saw the 'Whistler' photo on yellowtrace this morning, which lead me here. (always a great sight if you like fashion editorials. )

They are from a collaboration with photographer Peter Lippman and Christian Louboutin.

They have been blended seamlessly to create photographs made to look like old paintings. I also love the fantasy side, perhaps Whistlers mother really did have a pair of fancy boots underneath her petticoat?
