Default Have an original painting of your boat by: Chistopher Kuster

I received a facebook request from this artist. This was his original message:

Hi, I want to introduce myself. Iím Christopher, Mouth Artist in Tarpon Springs Florida. I am a paralyzed Artist (shallow water diving accident in 1992) that paints and draws by holding brush in my mouth. I am self taught and have never had any formal art teaching.
Please feel free to check out some of my paintings that I have posted in my profile pictures. Thank you for your FB friendship.


I thought it was necesary to post his work here seeing as though he does some phenominal artwork. He does a lot of boating scenes and thought it was appropriate. Truly inspiring. Here is a sample, enjoy:



Keep in mind he paints with his mouth...incredible.

Here is some info:

Hello, Thank you for contacting me. Yes I do commission paintings. I do a 12X18 like the "Popeyes" boat I just posted for $250 plus shipping. I will need several hi-res pictures to work from and my turn around time is about two weeks.
Please see my bio and other art on my website www.paintbyteeth.com
Have a great day! Thanks for your FB friendship and please tell friends about my artwork.

very cool, I think bobthebuilder, Gino, JBS and GLH needs one of these and Jay could send him some of his photos. $250.00 is very reasonable.

As a suggestion, you might want to change the header of the thread or start a new one, something like Awesome and reasonable original paintings of your boat. More people might look at the thread. Donna

I expected it to be $2500 after seeing the quality.

$250 is more than reasonable, and I'm going to contact him about doing my boat. My lake house always has a blank wall for something cool like that.

I almost added you and e dock in with that group, our boat is to old and would not match my decor

Brandon are you still a mod, perhaps you can help him change the title of the thread. Donna

I went on the artist's FB page and noticed Bob's already on it, LOL he probably has a rendering already started. A gift certificate for a picture like that would make a nice prize at a poker run.
