I don't know anyone who hasn't either had a family member or friend affected by autism...it is a mystery and a challenge to those who know it first hand.
When I reflected on what I know about it and how I see the children I know affected by it, the word "Flourish" popped into my mind..."to sustain strong steady growth". The ones I know have come so far, and my hope for them is that they continue to grow. My hope for the ones I don't know is the same, and that someday the mystery will unravel and we will all understand.
This is my contribution to Art Now...it is titled "Flourish"
Commercial batiks, hand dyed fabric, Etal, Extravorganza, metallic sheer fabric, Lumiere paint, variegated thread...and it really has straight sides...my photography is off!
