HAF Blog Ring Featured Artist Artshus by Violet

Not only does this artist create delightful art, she also has a creative name and a lovely web site - Artshus by Violet- as in art shoes or shoe art.   Karen, creator of Artshus paints some pretty realistic shoes.  The first time I saw one of her paintings, I thought I was looking at a photo of a shoe.  I admit, I'm not a shoe person, I don't like shoes, and they don't like me - but these shoes are beautiful!  Oh maybe these would work for me, I don't have to wear them, I can just sit and enjoy them.
Karen has this stunning red stiletto on her banner in her etsy shop, Artshus by Violet,  but you'll have to go look yourself.  Although I can show you one of her original paintings of this beautiful Pewter Stiletto, that is one gorgeous shoe!  Of course I'd fall flat on my face if I tried wearing a shoe like that.










This Vintage Velvet Pump is also an original painting, pretty amazing isn't it!!   
Karen also paints brooches, cards to canvases and murals.  If you're a shoe person or know someone who is, you've got to check out this artist's blog and shop.   And, she also does custom orders, so if you have a fav shoe you want a painting of,  this is the person to see.   Beautiful shoes!
Have a beautiful day.
