We Are All Out Of Excuses!

The following video is of a man born without eyes and yet he paints.  Oh, he paints abstract, you are probably thinking.  No!  Esref Armagan paints with a great deal of detail and even accurate perspective.   This self taught artist from Turkey paints with his fingertips.  His choices for colors that he has never seen are incredible.  Mr Armagan begins by etching out a drawing and then applies oil paints, one color at a time.   He says that he feels "inside" his paintings while he works.   He even paints landscapes that he has never seen.  You can see some of his art here.

I am truly amazed by this man and humbled at the silly things I can find as excuses for not being more productive.   I hope you enjoy this video and are inspired as well.
