Praying for Rain by Kirk O'Hara
This is an 18" x 24" print from the original, by self-proclaimed "mouth painter" Kirk O'Hara. Kirk O'Hara's art speaks. His intimate portraits reveal both his emotions and those of his subjects. His vibrant modern Southwestern paintings give us a peek into the area's history. His work does a lot of talking. Perhaps it is fitting that it is all done with his mouth. You see, Kirk O'Hara was born with arthrogryposis, a disabling condition that limits the use of his arms and legs. So each brushstroke of his striking paintings is made with a flick of his head and neck, with his paintbrush clenched firmly between his teeth.
