About the Art
I was inspired to paint after seeing a TV show
featuring Digital Photo-Realist Artist
Jen then arranged a surprise visit on my 2004 birthday.
It was really cool. We have been friends ever since. So far, the
paintings have taken from 8 to 200 hours apiece to complete. It
keeps me busy and I really enjoy it.
First Page of
“Digital Paintings “ were created on a computer. The paintings
contain no photos or scans. Although I was virtually paralyzed from the
neck down, I could still move my right shoulder a small amount. If
someone placed my hand on the mouse I could push it around enough to
move the cursor on the screen. I used special software that initiated a
mouse click when the cursor dwelled in one spot for more than seven
tenths of a second. Using this and an on screen keyboard, I slowly
produced the images. It was a little awkward, but it worked.
I have now completely lost the use of my arms.
These paintings were created using only my head. By moving my head side
to side and up and down I can move the cursor on the screen. To click
the mouse button, I activate a small switch next to my face by bulging
my cheek "Bullfrog Style".
