Inspiration in a Brush Stroke

The best thing about Picture Books is —- the Pictures!! I love art and admire folks who can turn some brush strokes into something inspirational.

Walker and I paint a bit. To entertain and, I suppose, inspire somewhat. Walker paints with his tail and we both do some pretty awesome pawpainting.



But lately I’ve been hearing a lot about a young man who is an incredible artist — and he’s blind. Yes, blind. He can not SEE what he paints. At least not in the same way that we see. Also, he’s from Texas – so he’s doubly blessed!

I just want to share his story with you — You will be amazed and inspired. And grateful that there are people in the world like John Bramblitt.

Mr Bramblitt has a website HERE that you might want to check out to see more of his work.

And a memoir titled Shouting in the Dark, My Journey Back to the Light

And that’s all for today. I think it’s enough.

Think on that

    • As Cupcake said, it really is mind blowing. I spend quite a bit of time with visually impaired folks and am constantly amazed at their ability to adapt and overcome. Humans are a source of constant intrigue for me. Walker says thanks for liking his artwork.

  1. I LOVE this post, Rhythm. How inspiring! Your artwork is lovely, too! I need to show Stanley right away. šŸ™‚

  2. This is such a wonderful story – thank you so much for sharing it! I love the idea of living brushstroke to brushstroke as well, the idea that painting allows us to be in the moment. I completely agree. Wonderful pawpaintings too!
