This woman's work

I took this photo sometime ago during a day I spent with a group of disabled artists. Some had physical disabilities, and some had mental disabilities, and some had both. This was a very sweet woman who described in very generalized terms what had happened to her many years ago. She was working on this watercolor, which I asked her to hold up while she posed for me. I said something finally, like, "Do you ever smile?" And then she did.

This is a reminder that I need to put this story together so other people can read it, and see it, and meet them.
