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?
