    What a load of tosh.....better then the B word that first came to mind.....ends in x.
    'They are painted as a progression in time'.........of course it's a 'factual statement'.....unless of course she did them ALL at the same time with multiple arms.
    They are all sucking up to you as a proud Grandfather, get a grip.
    I like the daubings, I think they show a hint of talent..............just let her get on with it, praise and encouragement when due......and make her help clear up.

    But please, kids are cleverer than you think.......don't utter such inane drivel in her earshot.

    Oddly enough I don't think they display talent at all, I don't think anyone at two years old is capable of talent. Or, to put it another way around, I think it's typical of what two years olds can do if sat at an art table and encouraged to wield a brush.

    You both appear to subscribe to Nature as the leading influence as opposed to Nurture. My experience tends toward a different conclusion. You might both agree that the jury's still out on that question.

    Infecting them with analysis?
    lol
    The art world is all about taking something with or without merit and finding words to make it seem intellectual. I'm giving the girl a chance at making a lot of money.

    Now you are off on a tangent about "The Art World"......that's got bugger all to do with the naive daubings of a 5 year old...
    Why did money come into this ?

    It's not a tangent. It's directly related to the thread topic. Since the OP is not confused about my intent and dry humour I don't see why you would be.

    eta: I can't believe anyone would think I posted my "critique" seriously. I just managed to find things that were believable. Too good at my own jokes.

    My 20 month old Granddaughter, as a result of her Mother and Father constantly, talking to her , playing with her, reading to/with her, has shown a remarkable leap in her ability to communicate with us. She understands and responds, with a large vocabulary - strings several words together, although not always pronouncing perfectly and shows a sophisticated sense of humour for someone so young. The health visitor was amazed when Shaya stated that she "wanted to read a book now" and went and picked her favourite....Peppa Pig

    That would suggest good positive nurturing and not being left to nature itself. Very proud of my daughter for that.
