The first person on my list of wonderful people is Maud Lewis. Maud lived from 1903 til 1970 in Nova Scotia under hard circumstances. The first link contains a lot of information about Maud and the second link gives you a peek of her work.
Painted by Maud
The second one is Herbert Freeman. Herbert, a homeless man living in Orlando, is a very special artist since he has to find his supplies on the street. If you click here you can see a short studentfilm about this man. When you want to see his paintings click here.
The third person is named Scott Marr. I am following his blog already for awhile and each time I am blown away by his art and the way he makes it. Click here and you can read his story and see his art. I have to tell you that I feel very blessed. Some time ago I asked Mary and Scott for a photograph of one of his paintings and to my surprise they said: "yes". My bare legged mailman came by during my Easter holiday and delivered this beauty signed by Scott and Mary.
How lucky can one get? VERY!!!!
The fourth person is a homeless man. His name is George but also known as Dr. Geebers or the pebbleman. Unfortunately I found very little information about the man but here is a newspaper interview with some links to photographs of his art. If you click here you find a youtube interview and you can see his art If you love stones you have to see this.
Have a fantastic day!!!!
