Ok, so if you know anything about me, you know I LURRRRRVVE shoes! I paint them, I wear them, I admire the costly “can’t-haves-quite-yet” and the “oh-don’t-even -bother-dreaming -about-them” pedi pedestals we call shoes. Heels, preferably for me. So I was gobstruck when I came onto a website devoted wholeheartedly to some of the most amazing, outlandish, garrish and even some incredibly impossible shoes. I could spend and admit, have spent hours drooling and giggling over the array that they have listed.
The purveyors are Liza Snook and Taco Zwaanswijk, whom reside in Holland. Two shoe junkies on a mission to pluck the most obscure to the most sensual shoe you will ever find, all on one site. So fill your shoe fetish at The Virtual Shoe Museum.
Here are a few samples to tide you over before you jump to thier page.
2•7•9 Artisans Trail hosts Second Saturday Art Jam, May 14. I will be one of two featured artists at the Flying Fish Gallery. Enjoy art, a crawfish boil and Cajun music jams by the Dallas-Based Zydeco/Cajun band The Zydeco Stingrays! Come check out the show and the towns of Ben Wheeler and Edom. They are becoming great little art meccas in their own right. Hope to see you there!
It was a warmer than usual January evening at the Bath House Cultural Center. I was excited as this was is my first gallery showing in Dallas. There were tons of people and an enormous buzz to the place. Elbow to elbow, we made our way through the show and found some really amazing art. There was an a student area for school age kids. I loved it because they even had their explanations of their art written out.
WE had a blast, met some really cool people and enjoyed a really great show. I hope I get to do it again next year!
