I’m going to brag on my daughter for a few minutes. She is a teenager with no formal training.
Let me say that again…no formal art training.
She has taken on this project for her bible teacher to paint a scene depicting portions of the book of Revelation.
For the first time, I have had to joy of seeing her work because the project is home right now, in our formal dining room, during spring break.
She still has a LOT to do, but I am blown away daily at her ability.
This morning I woke up to this.
The horses are bursting out of an open scroll, the 7 seals are split, there’s an angry sky and the earth is on the bottom left as well. And there is a lot of white space which will reveal more surprises as she keeps painting.
I’m just so proud of how hard she’s working on this and I can’t help but wonder if we should be researching art colleges.
PS, this is her first experience with oil paints!
