Dying is a joy when you can see the beauty of the world through a child's eyes. I have had the joy of her six years of life to spend an incredible amount of time with her. We would watch utubes and she always had a fascination with art. So Papa would draw and tell stories. Although my mother was a commercial artist, I have limited talent and my drawings and stories made her laugh at me. My wife who is an artist, however spent hours with this child teaching her the use of colors and techniques. She is now with an art teacher who teaches her after school, and she had her work displayed at the high school. Some have used the word prodigy, but my wife still finds some of her techniques primitive and age appropriate, but when she blends oils and acrylics....her art teachers are astounded. People are wanting to buy her art work. I was astounded when I saw this six year old's latest work. Such beauty and talent I pray will not be beaten down by life, and her beauty shall touch others.....let me share the same.
