Yesterday evening I was given a present from my granddaughter Georgie. It bought tears to my eyes being told that she was not helped at all. She has always been talented with drawing but this was her first real try with oils. She painted it from a photograph.

I will treasure this artwork as you can imagine.

Wow, Sarah, she is sure talented. Very well done, looks just like she took a photo. The water looks like it is splashing out of the picture. Hugs from Maureen in Durban

By all means , she should pursue her talent. My Mother had it, my daughter had it and now one one of my granddaughters has it. They told my daughter she was to smart to to be an art student and my son in law says he will not pay for a college degree in art for my granddaughter. So they need to put it secondary and come back to it later knowing it is their true love.

To me it is such a great talent. I only wish it could have come from me.

Thank you. We are trying to get her to paint another one for her grandfather but she is not too keen.

We have a long weekend this coming weekend and I am going to sit with Georgie while she starts another. This time one for her other grandmother. I am looking forward to:watching her.

This is a truly exceptional picture for such a young lass Sarah. No wonder you cried. Georgie has captured the movement of the ocean and the varied colours of the water is beautiful and I love the waves crashing on the rocks. I hope she gets to go to Art school when she is older and able to further her talent. Charlotte must be ever so proud too. Love Chris

Charlotte was painting along side of her and helped her with colours and mixing but all the brush work is Georgie.

Oh My! This is better than thousands of grown up artists. It's beautiful, and I know you will frame it and keep it forever and ever.

Thank you Jan. I am not going to frame it as it is stretched over a wooden frame. I do not want to take away from the seascape.

This is amazing! Georgie sure has inherited her mom's talent. Love the splash of the waves on the rocks and the different shades of the water. Just like in real life. The water going over the Falls looked like bluegreen glass. She has captured the photograph well, I am sure.

Wow! Painting must run in your family. You paint with threads. Your daughter and granddaughter paint with oil. Very talented indeed!

My mother was reasonable having had a few lessons. I am useless at painting. The only painting I do is walls and furniture.

This is beautiful - Georgie has true talent. Hope she gets lots of art training as she could have found her vocation at such a young age!!

Thank you Laura. She will only be 10 yrs in November. My daughter, Georgie’s mum is very talented with art and pottery. She advised Georgie but Georgie painted it all herself

It's wonderful. Encourage that child in her art. This looks quite sellable, although I'm sure you wouldn't!

She is very talented. I admire people that can draw and she definitely can.
Lucky you to get such a beautiful gift.

She certainly does not get it from me. When I draw, it looks as if a 2 yr old has done it.

The talent is definitely showing Sarah. If she loves it and develops that talent, she can go far. I would have had tears also. It thrills us so to see what our own can do.
