Allison Cole brings us a stunning series of acrylic paintings, ranging in size from 8″x8″ to 48″x36″, inspired by her young son who is autistic.
“When I started these paintings, we were like, ‘How do we reach him.’ Now it’s getting there. So it’s hopeful. I hope these paintings feel hopeful or positive,” Allison says. “We really want him to be able to communicate, whether it’s with words or pictures or signing, to lessen his frustrations.”
