Tom Silverstein's art is borne out of years in isolation he said when they took his art supplies away he told himself he would read every book available about art and be the best at it and finally when he was able to get supplies again he is the best in my opinion. Tom does not get *supplies like free people do but he can use any thing to create his beautiful art from ink pen to watercolor cakes, no fine brushes or pencils and paper but what is available. Sadly things have changed again (Tom's still in isolation longest held Federal prisoner) http://bit.ly/2jaifkL for nefarious reasons the prison has been confiscating Tom's art, so he announced recently he will no longer create just so "they" can steal it he says he will not give them the satisfaction, So what I offer here is a few precious pieces
My art came out of the pain of losing my sister to cancer. She was gone and she'd want me to use my gift. I myself lived after an aneurysm burst in my brain, so if God kept me here I should not waste my gift.
I am also a stroke survivor
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
