Got bored today, so me and dd went to a painting gallery, and this painting by a woman by the name of Lisa Fittipaldi...this woman is awesome!

I Googled this woman's name and learned more about her and saw what all other painting shje has done...check these out!

              

 

She has others, but these were my favorite. And you know, she is BLIND!! Wow! According to her bio, she began as a watercolorist and then she learned how to distinguish by feeling the differences in the primary colors. Then it goes on and describes how she does the other paintings. 

  But her work was amazing, and what was amazing to me ther most was the fact she was blind. Those colors are so bright! 

Anyway, I know most of you wouldn't care, I just thought is it was so cool. That and the fact in my narrow minded thinking never occured to me someone who was blind could paint like that.

  • That's really cool. I'm going to look the artist up on Google and read about her. I've never painted, but I've heard of some blind people who do it by having someone lay down lines of hot wax on a surface so they can feel where the paint should go and then they scrape the wax off when they're done. Did your daughter enjoy the outing?

  • Oh yeah! Especially when they let her loose in the 'painting room' with 100% washable paint. She looked like nickelodeon threw up.

  • That is so amazing.
    It is wonderful what we can do if we really want to find a way to do it.

  • I just went and read about her- though these are not my kind of thing...I think they are beautiful, the colors are beautiful.  I guess she started painting after going blind and now is an author of the ones I found I love these:





    and that first one you posted -the colors are amazing on that one
