Help Find The Lost Works of The Mouth Painter of Amarillo
Although small, Amarillo's got a pretty unique lineup of artists throughout its history.
Of course, you've got the well-known figures like Stanley Marsh, who is responsible for some of Amarillo's most well-known monuments like Cadillac Ranch or the giant pair of legs that sit between Amarillo and Canyon.
But then there are some lesser-known artists who are responsible for some pretty good art that is created in what could be seen as a "peculiar" method of creation. And an Amarillo Facebook user below is trying to find them.
So apparently according to this Facebook user, there was a portrait artist in Amarillo who lived in Amarillo in the 1970s who painted using her mouth.
It's honestly a pretty strange thing to imagine at first but once you look into the comments of this post, there are many users with fond but vague memories of this mouth painter.
It was Carolyn, she lived across the alley from my Mom in Hamlet, she was in the class of 64 at PD.
She went to Palo Duro but I cannot remember her name. Yes Carolyn Osborn was her name.
Thank you SO much! She painted a portrait of my husbands sister, after she passed away at an early age. The work she did was incredible!
I don’t remember her name, but she went to Palo Duro High through a special program for home schooling her.Nicki Splawn Baca
