Old, worn and with a lot of love.
Sometimes it’s like this.
You are upside down.
Tell me a story.
From the artist:
I am learning how to express my feelings. It is a daily challenge for me because of my autism. This particular art piece shares a bit about my last few months. Art and painting has provided a safe and creative way for me to speak without using many words, especially during difficult moments. Sometimes it’s like this, and art is something helpful for me.
I feel proud for the opportunities, and the personal challenge that this mural has provided me. A few times during my creative and painting process, I would stop and get my face close to the mural surface and say “hi” and “I like you.” This provided moments of gratitude, the strength to keep on even on days that were full of personal challenges, because sometimes it’s like this. I am learning it’s ok.
