Our Lady of Atocha Ship

              



                     WELCOME TO SIMO'S ART  
                                                                                 
    Arthur is my name I am a self taught artist and I have Autism. I am unpredictable and funny with a great imagination. Each of my paintings have different stories I think about them, they are my emotions and feelings and they will take you on an adventure with me. I already have my High School Diploma and a Chef Aid Certificate from Easter Seal South Florida . Now that I have finished school I have more time for my paintings.


This painting is about a ship named " Our Lady of Atocha" the most famous
 of a fleet of Spanish ships that sank in 1622 off the Florida Keys while carrying
 cooper, silver, gold, tobacco, gems, jewels, the ship was
driven by a severe hurricane and badly damage the hull so the ship sank very quickly, they recovered nearly half of the registered part of the vast treasure
and part of the ship that would hold most of the gold and emeralds is still missing from the shipwreck. They found a ring worth $500,000
about 35 miles from Key West, Florida. We all can join the search for the remaining treasure no found yet.

                                   The size of this paintings 8" by 10" canvas panel, acrylic, ink

I am not Autistic, I have Autism

A difference between Autism and Autistic. After many years dealing with my son and his condition of Autism, I have come to a conclusion between these two words. I have always refused the idea to describe my son as Autistic, giving me many hours at night dealing with it, I will try to explain as simple as I can the difference between them with my own point of view.

My son Arthur is not Autistic, because he does not have a disease, like Pneumonia. He has Autism, a disorder affecting his language, communication, social interaction, behavior and cognitive aspects of his life.

He is not a disease, his condition is affecting him the way he relates to others. He is different, unique and the love of my life. I felt this morning the need to write about my feelings and explain to others a little bit about my life and the way Autism has touch my soul.

This painting is about a Metal Horse, it has the ability to change forms, the horse is made out of a very special metal, it is hard to break rocks and other metals and it can become soft and be able to squeeze between doors. It is a great defense for any rider.
