Sami paints a feeling
Sami likes to paint his world that surrounds him, because for him it is full of beautiful and inspiring things, such as the tinkling sound of the ice cream cart at the end of the street, the warmth of the autumn sun on his face, and the hard work of a female robin building her nest. When Sami sees something he likes, he is overwhelmed by overflowing feelings, creeping like a butterfly into his mind, then into his heart, then into his pens, to emerge on his paper in the form of a swirl of colors.
Sami loves to paint these feelings, but he gets frustrated when no one understands his paintings at school or even at home. Although this does not stop him from painting what he feels, he gives up the desire to display his paintings to people. Until the day comes when Sami meets his new neighbor, Salwa, and is surprised by her great admiration for his drawings, and her ability to understand the feelings inherent in them. Only then does Sami realize that he has finally found a kind soul who understands him well, and understands what he wants to say in his paintings.
