Iza has not seen the sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh before she painted (colored) this, not even after she has done.
She started with flat green, purple and orange strokes ... i tried ... to advise ... her ... using short strokes with thick paints ... she got irritated. She started to doodle ... oh my little master ... the outcome is stunning.
I learnt. To leave her alone. Not to lead. Not to guide. Just watch her. I'm not as liberal as a child can be. I've got preconceptions on this painting. My mind is set, and framed. I learnt. Our child is our lead.
( Iza bought this canvas with a sketch printed on at a mini flea/flower market at school last Friday. Without any advice by grow ups, she did choose this with the other 2 blank canvas. Not like the other kids, she did not spend a cent on toys. )
