A place to show my love for my granddaughter who lives with Cerebral Palsy and my passion for painting. In an effort of raising awareness for C.P. every painting brush stroke I make on raw canvas is a stroke of love, as I discretely paint a green C.P. awareness ribbon in every piece. Can you find them?
Do you know someone who would like to have a painting done? email www.harrold.janet@gmail.com

Painting of Sofia and Carter

It's been a little while since I have painted, and it sure feels good to be back at it. This beautiful little girl Sofia also has C.P. She has been going to The Conductive Education Centre in Halifax, N.S. Canada She had been taking classes with Ben and his mom Cary from about the small stuff Cary mentioned to her about my raising money for Hailey to go to The Conductive Learning Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she contacted me to paint this lovely shot of Sofia and her cousin Carter making music together at the piano. I sure hope she likes it! Our goal of getting Hailey to Conductive Education is getting closer and closer. We have started the application process and if accepted she may be attending the May-June session this year! If any of you are thinking that you would like a 16 x20 of your child painted in oil for $100.00, now is the time to contact me. This offer may change in the near future. contact me at harrold.janet@gmail.com


  1. Gorgeous! I'm so glad she contacted you to do a painting!!! It took me a minute to find the ribbon, but I did find it. Great job as always Janet.

    P.S. Also love the new blog layout and the painting of Hailey. Beautiful.

  2. Thank you Cary for your kind words and for your referral! I sure hope you are finding out a good way to help with Ben's tightness :(

  3. I love this portrait. It's amazing to me how your impressionistic style can so accurately depict their body posture, the texture of their hair, etc. It's detail without detail!
