"Look At Me"

"You've got to follow your passion.  You've got to figure out what it is you love--who you really are.  And have the courage to do that.  I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dream."   --Oprah Winfrey

This is the first piece in the Autism Art Project.  It is a combination of a monotype (the middle) and a screenprint (the flower border).  It is titled "Look At Me."  I completed it in October 2009...three months after Derek was diagnosed.  The writing you can see in the background is basically babble.  I was in pain and I was telling the world how devastated I was.  I couldn't even get Derek to look at me at this point in time--I wanted my son back.  As you can see, Derek is beautiful.  :)
