To others my grandfather is just any other person in the world but to me he is my star, my hero. I love my Abba. One day I WILL grow up to be a HERO like him
About My Painting: My Hero 2012 This is portrait of My Hero, my Grandfather. I call my grandfather, Abba, this means father. In this painting I have not shown his face so that other children like me can relate it with someone like Abba.
My hero in the painting might look strange. He does not wear a cape but instead he holds a stick. His superpower is different from other heroes we have known. It can not been seen but felt and believed in. His superpower is his courage. He has a lifelong disease called diabetes. In this painting his one leg is missing. This is because it got cut after an operation in 2006. Sadly, after an operation he could not work anymore. Not because he left but the workplace did not allow him. They said he walked too slowly. He was not fit to work. But he never gave up on hope. He can walk really well now.
He is so amazing. He tells many funny jokes and sings very well. He likes to watch news and cartoons on TV, read books and even write during his pastime. He means the world to me. He teaches me to be kind. He tells me to be good in my behavior with everyone. When I say I am too tired to finish my homework, he asks me to work hard. My Hero, my Abba, has taught me a very popular saying, "Good, Better, Best, Never let it rest, till your good becomes better and better becomes best!"
Many people who do not know him may think he is old and disabled, but to me he is strong and fit. To others he is just any other person in the world but to me he is my star, my hero. I love my Abba. One day I WILL grow up to be a HERO like him too.
