Eight year old Ti Marie flourishes as she follows her heart and paints her pictures no matter that she cannot afford any real paints and brushes. She digs determinedly through the trash of a local artist and makes her magic with chicken feathers and bricks. Can one person make a difference? Even if that one person is a child? Well in this land of Haiti, one little girl does make a splash of color by painting her beloved pictures behind her mother's failing marketplace stand. When the village begins to talk of the artwork, many come to see Ti Marie's pictures with their own eyes and they do a little shopping too. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. Believe you can make a difference. 40 pages
