Irony
I'm a blind artist. This is something I've found ironic. I paint in a late impressionist style similar to Van Gogh. But my pride and joy was handcrafted glass and crystal beaded jewelry. I can't take it anymore however, I'm tired. I don't want my head flooded with images of things I can still create but no longer see.

RE: Irony
I get the impression that you were not always blind. How did you lose your eyesight?

I love impressionist painting, especially Van Gogh's "Starry Night".

How are you still able to paint if you cannot see? I can hardly paint with my eyesight. Surely that takes an extraordinary amount of focus?

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

-Karl Marx

That sort of reads like a Poem :

I paint But my pride and joy was handcrafted
I can't take it anymore , I'm tired.
I don't want my head flooded with images
I can still create but no longer see.


Are you really blind ?

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Have you tried your hand at music?
If you still want to do crafts still you could emphasise on texture.

RE: Irony
You could make sculptures to be touched instead of seen, much weirder and rare than regular sculptures. And because people would be touching them they will break, adding a scarcity element to your work and thus, value... if you know what I mean *wink wink*

RE: Irony
Why can't you attempt to make more jewellery? I like the idea of sculpting, too. Why not keep trying to create things as close as you can and see if that helps satisfy the creative bugs? I get that feeling too, where I imagine something in my mind but for other reasons I can't attain the outcome, it's super frustrating.

I have hydrocephalus the excessive fluids damaged the nerves in my eyes as for how I can still paint I don't know. There are a few blind artists in the world and no one has yet come up with an explanation for our creative abilities.
