Desi Art: You can never have enough shoes...

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Quite the delight today as I'm featuring a local desi artist Lynda D'Souza. Check out her blog 70 Popes and her fabulous etsy store. I found her work by accident on Etsy and was really excited when I found out she is home grown talent and practically a neighbour! Lynda has been painting for 10 years. She threw in the towel after 20 years of corporate life and now is studying full time Realist art. I love that commitment to passion (I hope one day I can do that too).  Lynda is living her dreams while she works away on her canvas. Her inspiration comes from all walks of life...but its her shoes that really drew me in. I'm hoping one day she paints some traditional indian shoes to add to her fabulous collection. A girl can never have enough can she?
Shine. Available here.
Glamour in a red pump. Of course. Scarlet Slingback available here.
Oh you know we all got some version of this pair hanging around. This art would look great in any shoe lover's abode....Hepburn available here.

How fun! I've posted my shoe closet before, so there's no doubt that I love shoes. I think one of these prints would be such a fun, unexpected piece of art in a walk-in closet. Thanks for sharing.
