still life with chalk

This is my 2.5 year old daughter Lily.

And a chalk drawing of a pear.

She drew the outline.

She shaded inside the lines.

She even drew the squiggly stem.

Without any direction from me.

I am proud of her creative talents and terrified at how fast she is growing up. Just yesterday she was shoveling mashed pears into her mouth, not even able to hold a spoon, let alone draw with chalk. 

I’m calling the Art Institute on Monday morning.
