Sami paints a feeling
Sami likes to paint his world around him, because for him it is full of beautiful and inspiring things, like the chime of the ice cream cart down the street, the warmth of the autumn sun on his face, the hard work of a robin building her nest. When Sami sees something he likes, he is overwhelmed with a lot of feelings, creeping like a butterfly into his mind, then his heart, then his pens, to come out on his paper in the form of a swirl of colors.
Sami loves to paint these feelings, but he gets frustrated when he can't find anyone who understands his paintings at school or even at home. Although this does not stop him from drawing what he feels, he gives up the desire to show his paintings to people. Until the day comes when Sami meets his new neighbor, Salwa, and he is surprised by her great admiration for his drawings, and her ability to understand the feelings underlying them. Only then does Sami realize that he has finally found a kind soul who understands him well, and who understands what he wants to say in his paintings.
