8-Year Old Artist Sells Paintings for Tens of Thousands of Dollars

Autumn de Forest began painting at a notably talented level by the age of 4. Now, at the age of 8, she's auctioning paintings for tens of thousands of dollars a piece:

“Elephant,” it turned out, was not a fluke. Autumn’s parents bought her museum-quality paints and canvases “to see what would happen,” Doug said, “and in very short order a prolific kind of blossoming happened, and the canvases started getting bigger and bigger.”

In fact, Autumn’s canvases are now so large — typically 4 by 6 feet — that she has to paint them on the floor. Doug built her a sort of wooden bridge so she can sit on it and paint the middle of the canvas. (Autumn is slightly taller than 4-foot-2 and weighs slightly less than 50 pounds.)
