I love the one from Age 9 called "Found" with the two babies. I found it interesting that she used the word "colored" in the description of the painting.

I took it to mean people of color, because when referring specifically to the two children she said Black.

Geeze, when I was 9, I was still struggling to grasp the concept of shading...

Her paintings are beautiful - I'll have to tell my art teacher about this.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Either way, her paintings are gorgeous.

Wow she has a lot of talent. Does anyone remember another child prodigy artist like this, who used to paint cubist style paintings in the 90s? I remember she made one painting after the Oklahoma City bombing that was pretty famous.

It sounds like she's schizophrenic. Come on, vivid visual hallucinations? Either that, or she's a pathological liar.

I love how the narrator smugly suggests that this is a religious experience, a child saint whose faith overcame the doubts of her evil atheist mother--and not childhood manifestation of mental illness.

I'm glad, though, to know that God is "really masculine...his eyes are just beautiful." Sounds dreamy! What's his number?

Sounds like a load of crap to me, though I admit, the paintings are very impressive for someone her age without any training. I'm just not quite sold on the whole her-seeing-god thing.

aw, y'all are so cynical!! Is a gift like that really a sign of mental illness? Is it really so ridiculous to believe that a little girl has been given a gidt by God? I think shes absolutely remarkable and feel she has been truely Blessed in so many ways. Those paintings gave me chills.

If you don't believe that God is a white dude with a beard, then, yeah, it is pretty ridiculous. Her technical skills are quite remarkable, her paintings tend toward the cheesy, but she's 12, so they should be.

A little....kooky. Visits to heaven? Seriously?

Beautiful paintings, though. "God" looks like one of my ex-boyfriends.

Yea, that's why I thought I'd post it. The religious aspect aside, I was just amazed at how much talent she has for a 12-year old child. Heck, I can't draw a decent stick man!

A friend emailed me her website a few months ago. I'm still amazed at this little girl's talent! I don't really care how creepy people think she might be, I think she's inspiring and her paintings are very nice. So, she's different. What's wrong with that? She's not hurting anyone. Seems like she's only trying to send a positive message..
*shrug*
I like her.

(just my humble opinion):
btw...I tend to think God doesn't have "one" type of face. If someone sees God as a certain image, that's their business. Most of the time, I imagine God looking like an elderly black man. But that's just me. Sometimes you can't help what your imagination dictates to you. We're just human, afterall.
