Many are inspired by Kary Johansson’s art. Not only do his watercolor paintings capture a beautiful moment in time, but Johansson has powered through adversity to complete each individual painting — at age 40, Johansson was declared legally blind. While he stopped traditional employment at that time, the artist and musician was determined that the disability would not get in his way or stop him from accomplishing his dreams. Through hard work and determination, Johansson developed new methods and techniques, which enable him to produce brilliant pieces.
Johansson is a realist artist whose work is drawn from life experiences. He and his wife spend their free time traveling, and Johansson paints from photographs his wife takes. The legally blind artist then creates landscape paintings in rich colors and flowing details. His national parks paintings and original artwork have been praised and celebrated throughout his life.
Take a look at some of Johansson’s watercolor portraits or landscapes, and keep in mind the artist is also available to create unique commissioned artwork.
