Cadence’s Rainbow Hearts Paintings

Some say that children (and adults) on the Spectrum have ‘obsessions’.   I prefer to think of it as moments in time of being ‘highly focused’ – often resulting in the gaining of knowledge and abilities in ‘new’ areas.

Cadence’s spent much of a recent weekend highly focused on teaching herself watercolour painting and creating ‘rainbow hearts’ – a small series of artworks, based on her writings and love of color, which she has aptly named ‘Autism Rainbow Hearts’ and which are now proudly displayed on our living room wall.
