Art expands world of Autistic Mendota Heights Teen

Here is a link to today's Star Tribune article on Jimmy:

In the Star Tribune photo, Jimmy was working on the Goodbye Ron Study.  Here is a better look at these two pieces - he had just started the painting. The title is quite funny.  Jimmy's tutor's name is Ron.  Ron asked him what he was going to name the painting and he giggled saying "Goodbye Ron."    In Goodbye Ron,  the subject is looking over her shoulder as if she is sending off a former suitor. Jimmy's sense of humor.....I like the title!

Disclaimer here: some how Star Tribune thought our barrel top was one of Jimmy's pieces - it is not - pretty evident by the difference in style.  I am not sure who the artist is.  We bought this piece at WineFest a few years ago.
