Shoe Junkies UNITE!

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.

Suddenlink Art Class

Painting and wine class

So we had a blast creating Dorothy's shoe at the Cascades with the Suddenlink team. Those folks know how to have a good time,plus there were some very talented painters in the group. I was so impressed with not only their skills but also their great attitudes. I love classes like that! It makes painting so much fun! So here are a few pics ...Enjoy!

The shoe making genius of Anastasia Radevich

As an artist who gets anxious and excited every time I start a new shoe painting, I got even more spastic when I discovered the art...eh shoe making genius of Anastasia Radevich. Her shoes are like flashes of the future and the organically inspired. I want to swim in her brain for a bit to see where she is coming from. The next best thing though, is the sneak peek of her sketch book on her website. I ate that up like a thanksgiving feast. It had elements of earth and whimsy and grit and softness. It was akin to watching a ballerina or ice skater. You see their strength and tenacity, yet they are so delicate looking and refined. I just hope that my art shoes can one day inspire someone else like her shoes do to me.

 

Hey Ms. Anastasia Radevich, if you are reading this, I'll trade you a painting any day for a pair of your awesome shoes!

Sponsored by Foundation de la Mode de Montréal, Anastasia has completed a diploma with distinction at London College of Fashion, home to names like Jimmy Choo, Patrick Cox and Georgina Goodman. Anastasia is a Canadian footwear designer of Belarusian origin. She lives and works on both continents.

Visit her website to experience all of her shoes and genius!

Amazing real shoes that are pretty much walking art!

These shoes are real and with a very pretty price tag, but oh...if I were Richard Branson's wife, I'd have me a pair!

Some shoes are all business, but not these!

Now these are so creepy....
"No sir, I don't know who shot these two rattlesnakes, but they looked like they'd make a good pair of shoes."
