Painter Puts Finger On Unique Art

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Everyone learns how to finger paint when they’re kids, but not everyone can turn their kid-like talents into a lucrative business like one New-York based artist has.

Over the last 13 years, Miriam Cabessa has developed a unique style of applying paint to canvas by only using her hands and fingertips.

Cabessa claims she’s the only one doing this brushless form of painting professionally and is tickled pink by it.

In her words, “It’s so simple and easy. It’s shocking that no one has picked up on it because it comes out looking very good.”

Her fingered paintings range from bright heart-shaped themes to dark, complex 3D-like pictures and is the result of what she calls “the rhythm” that develops in her hands when she listens to the music of Sebastian Bach, Moby and Madonna.

It can take Cabessa months to finger an idea onto the canvas, but she figures the $5,000 to $12,000 each piece fetches is well worth it.
