Jim Stevens Lost His Sight, But Not His Vision For Art

(This story first aired on 7/18/2016.)
While serving in the Vietnam War, Jim Stevens was shot in the head. He survived, but decades later, the injury caused Stevens to lose nearly all of his vision -- his line of sight is now the size of a tiny pinhole. Despite being legally blind, Stevens has made a name for himself as an artist. He works out of his studio in Wheat Ridge, and has paintings featured through July 30 in "About Face," a portrait show at Denver's Cabal Gallery.
Jim Stevens says his process to create "monofilament paintings" -- acrylic paint on 129 strands of fishing line, eight layers deep -- can take up to two months.
