Now for a beautiful story ;o)
When my art goes to a new home, it truly makes me so happy inside. To know my art is being loved and cherished, is the best feeling ever.
I was contacted by one person, that has several of my paintings. She said she had to tell me something. She has a grand-daughter, that calls me "The Crow Lady". Her grand-daughter just loves my crows, absolutely loves them.
I think her grand-daughter is 5 and she is autistic.
Her grand-daughter has every painting. They are hanging in the living room.
It's hard for her grand-daughter to understand, she must not just ask for things and it was harder for them to say no to her. Her grand-daughter calls them her crow friends, it's so sweet.
It's was a small sacrifice, having all the paintings at her daughter's house, but worth it, because through my crows, her grand-daughter first started using her words properly. Before my crows, she would always say, I wants a cookie, but after the crows came in her life, she began asking, may I have a cookie. For that they will always be thankful to my crows ;o)
The change in their grand-daughter is just amazing. She has come right out of her shell. She is interacting with other children and volunteering conversation. No longer parroting what they say. It's wonderful and all it took were some crow paintings ;o) Her grand-daughter is still definitely autistic, but her world became so much bigger and easier with her speaking ;o)
Doesn't that make you feel all nice and warm inside? You really never know how something is going to affect someone!
