In talented people their quirks. And knowing the history of the town of Kermit Oliver Waco, this unwittingly convinced. He is a regular 60-year-old postman, who works the night shift, and after the main work draws on Laksheri home prints, scarves Hermès. And this is the only artist from the United States, which has 80 runs with this brand. Shawls and scarves with his drawings are always sold out instantly, and the average price was about $ 400 apiece. Art Gallery in Houston also somehow sold his work for $ 70 thousand. But his work - just a hobby, which he does not intend to provide for the family. He himself modestly commented on the situation. "I'm just not interested. Drawing - it's just what I do, "- he said, as if his prints - it's something like peel the potatoes for dinner.

Kermit Oliver usually paints on sheets of watercolor paper size 90x90 cm (just like scarves Hermès), and then sends them to the production, printing on silk. Despite the fact that in its portfolio of 16 works for this French brand, they are the most loved her.
