Pure talent

My daughter has wonderful friends. They all have talents and characteristics that make them special. However there is one girl who really impresses me and has since she was very young. The young lady in the middle of this photo, standing with my girl and another friend, has been an artist all her (not so long) life!  I love that a sixteen year-old can paint a self portrait so fearlessly and honestly with out a hint of ego. 
Isn't her self portrait amazing?

HOLY STINKIN' COW! Off the chart wow! I'm in shock at the ammount of talent. Do you think this girl would do a portrait of a picture for me? I will pay her handsomely. I'm serious.

OH MY STARS!! She is really good. Please tell me she will major in art when she finishes HS. I think you might have to have her do a commission piece for you when your remodeling is complete. xo
