Acrylic on wooden board (25 x 25 cm / 10 x10 in)
This was painted by Eldest Sonshine, age 12 at a time when he was in some pain. He often asks to paint when he's disregulated, upset or uncomfortable. Painting is soothing for him. It's therapy. It's so wonderful to watch him begin in a state of tension and gradually have that release and leave him calm or excited. The power of art. Amazing.
