MS man uses toothpick as paintbrush, creates beautiful art
Jones County, MS (WDAM) — Terry Bustin cannot read or write, but he can paint.
"Somehow I decided to try a toothpick, and I've been using it ever since," said Bustin.
He has been painting for over 40 years, and the themes of his paintings range from wildlife to Civil War era, to anything in his imagination, all using a toothpick.
"I just like drawing," said Bustin. "There's another one I'm going to start on after this one."
His sister-in-law, Karen, said he spends all day painting, sometimes even working through meals.
"I think he knows he's pretty good, but I don't think he realizes how good he is," she said.
