An original mouth brush painting by Lori Konkle:
“Northwest Reflection,” Gouache, 18″×24," Inventory #189, 1996
Lori Konkle painted 527 watercolors holding the brush in her mouth due to advanced multiple sclerosis. A very devout and optimistic person, she almost never complained about her life in a wheelchair.
Lori’s lovely landscapes, impressionistic flowers and lively animals remind us of the folk art of Grandma Moses. Lori worked in watercolor and in gouache which is opaque watercolor. We have located and photographed over 150 of her paintings so far and are pleased to present them here available as prints and greeting cards.
