HALLOWEEN STROLL

Here is my latest Halloween painting. It is an 11"x14" Stretched canvas with lots of crackly, antiqued goodness! This will be listed soon, and as always, bids start at one penny! FREE SHIPPING too! All of my paintings from now on will have a tiny heart somewhere on them. This is to show you that a little piece of my heart is in every one of them!

I hope everyone with kids is getting back into the school routine. We are around here. My "day job" is going well. Lots of challenges, but lots of rewards. Some examples of those rewards in the last week are; After lots of encouragement on the playground, a little 4 year old Down syndrome girl pedaled a tricycle for the first time. The proud smile on her face was priceless! Another day I was helping a little autistic boy in the bathroom and after using the toilet he looked up at me and said, "Ms. Cris...I think you are super-cool!" Ha Ha, I laughed so hard! I guess it took peeing in the toilet to make him think of that for some reason... ha ha Well have a nice week everyone!

Aww that's so nice that those kids like you so much. How accomplished you must feel with your painting and all.

I love the picture and the heart idea is sweet. Sounds like you really enjoy your job working with the children. I worked with autistic kids for a couple of years before we moved south. It's very rewarding!

Awww, what a nice story. I am so glad that Rose and Anthony have become attached to their teachers. It makes it so much easier if they like them. Anthony even made a collage artwork for his teacher with the words, " I will be the best that I can be at school." I think he found a little inspiration in the Cub Scout Motto. Ha ha. Can't believe Jordan and Nino did not see each other in the parade! Love the painting and it looks like you are doing much better at the Gallery!

You're an angel. I have an autistic child, well, he turns 24 today, and I can recall the stories his teacher would tell me about his accomplishments...another wonderful angel, in fact all those people involved in SE are angels. I still get the same thrill when he does something new.
