my hands can’t even open water bottles




All of the above paintings were painted by a THREE YEAR OLD!

She has autism and is being called the “Mini Monet”

—Iris Grace Halmshaw’s colorful, impressionistic watercolor paintings have an ethereal, glowing, floral beauty, prompting comparison to Monet. Halmshaw, who lives in Market Harborough, England, is 3 years old, autistic and does not speak. Her parents first handed her a paintbrush hoping to help her connect with others; their hopes were more than realized. “When she started doing art therapy we thought it was amazing, but we’re her parents so we think everything she does is amazing,” her dad, Peter-Jon Halmshaw, said. Others thought so, too – and now Iris Grace’s paintings are selling for almost $1,300. Her first painting was sold at a charity auction. Profits from other sales of her paintings go toward her art supplies and therapy.

Aww this is so beautiful. I’ve given much thought to being an art therapist.
