After I finished my last blog about taxes, I thought I’d explore something more fun. Something visually pleasing. Something inspiring. It didn’t take long to find, and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you.

What I found are some websites featuring a wide variety of art by artists with a wide variety of disabilities.  Really gorgeous stuff!  Among my favorites are Scottish landscape painter Keith Salmon and Australian photographer Mark Richards.  I’ve included teaser samples of their work here to entice you.

So go get yourself a hot cup of tea or maybe some wine, let your left brain relax, and sit back and enjoy these two sites:

And if, perhaps, you find that all this visual ecstasy inspires you to explore your own artistic expressions, here’s another launch pad that might interest you–the National Endowment for the Arts’s list of organizations that assist artists with disabilities.
