Future Artist?

Arwen has always been artistic. Coloring, drawing, painting, molding with play-doh. She enjoys coming up with new pictures and we run out of supplies steadily here.

First I'd like to show you a picture of Zelda the Twilight Princess art from the game guide, note the little creature riding the wolf and of course Zelda astride his faithful horse Epona.

This is a picture she drew when she was 4 years old. Yes you read that right. At the age of 4 Arwen asked to play Jimbo's gamecube system. She'd watched him play Zelda Twilight Princess and fell in love with it. He hooked it up in her bedroom and off she went. For the next year she drew pictures of her adventures and when she finally beat it I was proud of her but amazed. How many 4-5 year olds (she hit 5 during this time) beat a role-playing game like Zelda?

And this is something she just did for me today. I'd noticed her cutting up random bits of leftover construction paper and when I asked what her newest project was she said it was a surprise for me.

Maybe I'm just one proud Momma but I'm awestruck by this. She's only 6 years old and the art she does is so amazing, especially for her age.

Wow, she does have talent! And I too am amazed that she beat the game at 4/5. I'm thinking you might have a TAG kid on your hands there (Talented and Gifted - that's what they used to call it when I was in school anyway).
