The Next Picasso?

Picasso.  Van Gogh.  Walles.  Monet.  Meares.  What do all these individuals have in common with my daughter?  The ability to create beautiful art.  Staley spent about 20 minutes (which, I believe, is the typical time it requires most artists to complete a piece) sitting at her little table this morning, working to create her very first masterpiece.  She trialed a variety of artistic techniques:  the horizontal scribble, the dot-dot-dot, the double-fisted crayon technique, the draw-on-the-table-instead-of-the-paper plan, the exchange-my-crayon-for-a-different-color experiment.

The right hand eagerly waiting for the left hand to get tired.

Pretty pleased about having a red crayon AND a green crayon.

The end result.

I think we can all agree that the use of color and movement, the presssure differences in the crayon strokes, and the empty white space on the bottom right-hand side of the paper all provide an emotional abstract experience that leaves the viewer feeling the essence of joy that Staley brings to her art.  Or at least feeling mildly pleased that she didn't try to eat the crayons.
