The so called “Child Prodigy” Marla Olmstead is in the news again, gaining more international exposure than most veteran artists. Her work is now selling for up to $15,000 each. I wonder if those same works will still be worth $15,000 in twenty years time?
“She builds her paintings in layers. Children don’t do that. She starts with big swatches of colors and then adds details and accents on to that. That’s what is so impressive and beyond what other children do” says gallery owner Anthony Brunelli.
Good for her if she’s having fun painting..
