MANDEVILLE, La - If the shoe fits, that is if it fits on the foot of one of the New Orleans Saints football, players,

Christina Pappion paints it.  She's an artist. She's been an artist since she was a little girl.  She usually paints the kind of canvases all artists paint. And she paints wood. And she sometimes paints on wine glasses.

Now she's painting shoes. Cleats.  They're the shoes the New Orleans Saints wear on the football field.

They come in sizes as big as an eighteen.  That's big enough, Wild Bill thinks, to paint The Last Supper.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood heads to her gallery in Mandeville to get the scoop.

And to get the scoop, Wild Bill has to take a sniff out of one of the shoes.

It smells like success. A winning season, Christina Pappion says for the Saints.
