Limited Motion Expressions Art Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

When I was contacted by a quadriplegic mouth artist to review his art and site, 'Limited Motion Expressions', I became interested. When I viewed his art, I was completely touched by his beautiful masterpieces. It is amazing to see such talent displayed in art that was created with a pencil, paintbrush, and a mouth. I was inspired by Non's touching story. You will be, too
"Non was involved in a motor vehicle accident seventeen years ago that left him paralyzed from his shoulders down. Unable to even breathe on his own, "Non" wondered what his life held in store for him or for his wife and son. Months went by and depression slowly set in as he wrestled with only the inabilities he now had. He couldn't be a father or husband now... life was over. One day nine months after the accident, while lying in bed, his 3 year old son, Jacob, approached his side. Jacob innocently looked up at Non and said, "Daddy, scratch my back". Non just looked at Jacob and fought back the tears as he tried to figure out how he would tell his son that he couldn't even do this simple task for him. As Non wrestled with all the emotion, Jacob could see his daddy was having a hard time and then he said, "With your whiskers, daddy". Jacob then jumped on his father's chest and had his daddy scratch his back with his chin. At three, Jacob saw what his father "could" do, not what he couldn't. Non knew he had to stay positive for his family and himself. Because of his son's heart, Non could see his glass was half full, not half empty... Non later discovered he had an aptitude in art and with a brush or pencil held in his mouth, has learned how to express himself in his drawings and paintings. Now, Non uses his art as a tool to help inspire others and reminds all to be positive. "
This print, 'South for the Winter,' is one of my favorites. I love the bright yellow, but also the calmness of this scene. For only $35, I am sure this art piece would be a conversation starter and a wonderful addition to any home.
This print, 'Landing the Big One,' can be yours for only $30. So peaceful.
'Jagged Coast' is an 11x17 print and it sales for $30.00.
The 'Lone Wolf' print also sales for $30.
I also really love how Non presents this serene scene with bold colors that appear soft. This art print is breathtaking and is also only $30.00.
I received the 'Waterfall Dreams' print to see for myself this amazing talent up close. It is stunning! It came in a brown mat, making the picture 16 x20. I hung it in my family room for all to see and so far, everyone has wondered where it came from, how they can get one, and have complimented on it's beauty. There is so much detail in this print. The trees and waterfall almost seem real. I am so amazed that this was done with Non's mouth. It must have taken so much time, effort, and patience to make such a perfect painting. I love it.
BUY IT!
You can buy a beautiful print for your home or for someone you love at Limited Motion Expressions for $30.00 (s/h is included in the price). I promise you will be so pleased.

  1. I can always appreciate fine art, especially that of a physically challenged artist who still creates beauty. Kind of like Chuck Close (look him up!).

    I just LOVE Tropical Sunset, the colors are so beautiful and saturated, blended so well.

    normally comment on blogs, but I just thought that i'd drop you a line and tell you that I think you're doing a fantastic job.
