Handed this portrait to my neighbour today. . I was minding her kids one day, and got a photo of Tara on my phone. She had this impish little smile and luckily, I captured it. Tara has cerebal palsy and has no muscle control,she isnt able to sit or eat or speak. and I noticed that they dont have many "smiling photos" of her as they do with the boys. Which is such a shame as she is the prettiest little girl. I just see past the disablement and know when I blow a blurty on her arm and she laughs, that she is just alittle girl and hopefully, my painting will show others to see her as I do.
