Artist's Z-Coil Shoes

Have been painting shoes lately ... first my own Z-Coils, which I have worn and worn and worn ... ALWAYS get fabulous comments on them wherever I were them, to art openings, quilt shows, just out and about. I thought others might like to own some Fabulous Art Shoes as well, so here are some I'm offering.

(The website construction has bogged down, so I'm slipping them in here in the meantime.)

This first pair are Z-Coils, the famous "shoes with a spring" ... they are wonderful for nurses, doctors, salespeople, and others who are on their feet all day ... including Artists! I've painted these to reflect two of my favorite sayings ... the right shoe says "Tragically Cool, Incredibly Hip", and the left shoe says "Awaiting Additional Inspiration". The style is a Taos Clog Strap, size 7M, retailing on the Z-Coil website for $230 (plain white). I'm selling them (new in box) with my signed artwork on them, protected with a coat of Satin Acrylic Finish, for $295.

Notice the Eyes of Wisdom (or are they the Eyes of Curiosity?) that will keep you company wherever you go. Mine always get lots of attention, so whenever I wear them, I always come home in a good mood, from having been stopped and talked to by strangers who want to know about them.

More shoes coming up in another post or two ...


  1. Linda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These are fantastic!!!!!! Oh my goodness...if only one could paint on Birks easily...I'd send you a pair. WOW.

  2. These are so fun and funky! I love them!

  3. Thanks, Carol Dean and Karen ... they are so much fun to do, I like to paint them at night while "watching" TV ... actually just listening to TV. Thank goodness for good strong OTT-lights!

  4. You are sooooo incredibly talented!! Everything you touch just turns to gold! You are such an amazing person, and it shows in your art!

  5. FABULOUS ! ! ! !
    Your shoes make me wish I was young again so I could wear them. That is incredable work. I'm wondering what you might do with orthopedics. Hmmm.

  6. Thank you, Ophelia and Ann! I've actually done some orthopedic shoes ... my aunt wanted some for her vacation in Washington, D.C. and I made her a wild pair. She loved them! Wish I had taken a picture of her with them on, she's adorable!


Talk to me, Y'all!
