Seeing with an autistic eye

Seeing With An Autistic Eye by Deb Averitt |

“I felt bad about Monday. It’s sad. 07”

That’s the title King Nobuyoshi Godwin gave this painting, which now lives with me. Here’s how he describes himself:

“I have autism. Being autistic is ok. I can see trees in my mind and talk with them… If I sell my paintings I can buy more paint colors. And that is purple and that is 4400.”

4400 is a happy number; 07 is sad. If you look closely, you’ll see that the background is composed entirely of 07s.

How’s that for a different perspective?
