Child Prodigies


This looks like fun!

Maybe she was inspired by Pro Hart.

He was an Australian artist, born in Broken Hill, New South Wales, who was considered the father of the Australian Outback painting movement and his works are widely admired for capturing the true spirit of the outback.

He put his body, heart and soul into creating his masterpieces

even when they were  commercials.

    1. I suspect many a child prodigy struggles as an adult when the cuteness factor is no longer there. They are often socially inept. The other thing I wonder about is what happens to all the millions they earn as kids ….

      1. I’ve often wondered about that. It’s a scary thought, and I don’t know how the law stands concerning money earned by a seven-year old. Can a large proportion be held for safety by a solicitor? Imagine how disastrous it could be for a sixteen year old to have access to huge amounts of money.
        While you can say anything is worth what the buyer is prepared to pay, the art dealer is a trickster who makes the decisions, and I think it’s irresponsible to put such high monetary value on a child’s work, no matter how interesting it is. Also, I think there’s more to the story than meets the eye. Who would give a fifteen-month-old such huge tubes of paint without some kind of hope or plan? When she knelt on a canvas and poured a tin of pint on either side of her, it looked familiar. She had talent, but she’d been coached – even if she didn’t know it.
        On the other hand, the child pianist was amazing. He showed extreme talent, and there was a different atmosphere about him.
