Our Budding Artist

I don't want to be one of those "our girl is so clever" parents but Dada has started to demonstrate what I think is remarkable graphical skills for a child so young, in particular, her control over the pen and her ability to create abstract minimalist drawings that are not just the usual stick figures and that clearly express her stated vision.

Anyway, today she drew the picture shown, which is a picture of Eliot. When she drew it initially the mouth was just the line. She thought I looked sad so she drew tears but she drew them from the mouth. Still, even with the drool-for-tears I think it's a remarkable little piece of caricature.
