The painting below is done by Tony Ryals ....
see his story below this painting.Tony Ryals was born with a rare, crippling disease robbing him any use of his arms and legs. At a very early age Tony was sent to a foster home, raised with LOVE and understanding, with a high standard of work ethics, mainly to always try to earn your own way in life. He was taught that everyone in this world will need help sometime in their life, that the human race is like a two-way street! (Always try to Give and sometimes Receive.) Not the Other way around! Meaning we ALL have our very own capabilities to give or help each other. No Excuses!
Tony is making it! His life is proof that even extreme obstacles can be overcome, and that dreams can be achieved. With a wife and two kids plus now a grandpa, he lives a happy productive life. Through his life and his life story, Tony encourages others to have Hope and to enjoy living, no matter what comes their way.
With a head ful of Dreams, and a Heart full of Hope, Tony was able to reach deep inside of himself and find peace. He was touched by the true Master Creator of all, GOD! These inspirational feelings give him the willpower and determination to develop this GOD given talent.
The Painter of Hope uses the finest artists tools, grasped in his teeth. Bringing a canvas to life with detail ranging from the smallest feather on a humingbird's wing, to the colors of a brillant sun setting on a tempestuous sea.
He feels the need to change the word disability to a brand new word Diff-Ability! His message to all of us is "Never Give Up".
