This ready to hang, matted framed art piece features a blue suede heel against an abstract background. Internationally collected, award winning artist, Roderick e. Stevens ii was handed his first set of oils at the age of seven. His love for painting was promptly born. In high school, he began exploring realism and simultaneously discovered acrylics which seemed to better accommodate his impatient nature. Early on however, film making grabbed his attention and cinematography became his career of choice, nudging painting to 'occasional hobby' for many years. In 2004 a cataclysm of turmoil sent him back to the palette for some personal focus and his talents re-emerged. Since then Roderick has traveled the country in art shows and galleries sharing his contemporary, photo-realistic paintings. His work has quickly garnered critical praise and numerous awards.
