One of our girl's favorite subjects is Art.
She has loved it all of her elementary school career, and we find that she really, truly is, talented!
We were thrilled when one of her pieces (oil pastel & watrcolors!) from 1st grade was selected to be on display at the local Performing Arts Center.
We couldn't wait to attend the Art Show & see for ourselves,
the work of our daughter we had not yet seen.
She titled it
'Princess & The Pea'
and we immediately fell in love with it.
Our girl, she always takes her time, a lover of details this one.
It was quite an amazing feeling, standing across the room looking at other art, and seeing people stop to point, take pictures of, and, well, marvel...at the work of our young Picasso.
One woman was spending quite a bit of time near Hailey's art,
& had taken numerous pictures of the piece.
I smiled, and she asked me if I knew the artist...
She simply HAD to meet her she told me.
I was pretty grateful that these aren't for sale, because there may have been a bidding war...
And I cannot WAIT to hang this up in our home!
And while it's tough, hanging out while the sibling gets all the glory...
The best little brother in the world did his best to admire the art too.
There were some pretty great other pieces as well...
We are very proud of you Hailey Elizabeth.
Keep up the great work - you are going to do great, great things!
