Clouded In Secrecy - Artist with Autism

From the moment she entered the room all eyes were on her. No one knew who she was but they all whispered and stared. She smoked to calm her nerves but her presence was clouded in secrecy.

Rose did this drawing using ink, colored pencil and pastels. You can find reproductions for sale in my Etsy shop.

I am a member of the Etsy Twitter team and one my fellow members, Lois Stifel of FoxyGKnits wrote an article about Rose and I for Autism Awareness Month. I hope you'll stop by and take a look.

Have a great day everybody, thanks for stopping by.

This is a wonderful piece of art! Rose sure has much to say when she takes color to paper! Thanks for sharing, and I'm going to check out the article.

Betty, what a powerful story you shared with Foxygknits! I am so glad I took the time to read about your life and experiences with Rose. So touching, so precious... you've given so much of yourself, and I know, in turn, have received many blessings for it. Consider yourself hugged... from afar!
