Aw, thank you! I’m glad you like that piece! It was so fun to make, and Erin Morgenstern is an absolute peach. Follow this link to a lovely place where you can buy your very own print!

I’m glad to see a fellow Deviant! I’m not so active there anymore, but I’m very happy you found me here! Thanks for enjoying my work <3

It has a Carnival, and you know me and freakshows. *smiley face*

Haha! Yes, there are a few people who seem curious about my feelings of AHS. To be completely honest, I have yet to make it through a single season. It’s just way too much for me. Sounds crazy, because I watch horror movies every day, and I love being scared, but I’m a fan of the less-is-more style in horror. I’m also incredibly sensitive about using sexual assault as a plot device in entertainment. So I draw the line there. I know (because I know some folks who work on the show) that more of the same is coming with this season. So, regardless of my absolute adoration of the freakshow theme, I’ll probably be watching this season sparingly.

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
