While vacationing on a beach this past January, we met a rather charming, precocious 4 year old named Piper. She obviously observed several people selling their wares on the beach. She and her much older (all of 6 years old) cousin, who provided moral support, cautiously approached us with a pile of small pictures she had created. We browsed through her collection while she informed us she was selling her art. My husband and I had to control our laughter because it was so bold and earnest. We just LOVED it! I asked “so, when were these masterpieces created?” Piper looked at us with her big blue eyes and answered: “This morning!” We asked the prices of her fine art and she responded “Oh, 10¢ a picture.” So, I picked one picture and asked her to sign and date it. Piper could only write her name, so we dated it. We gave her a $1 to further motivate her entrepreneurial spirit. Besides, we were not sure how much more successful she would be… We enjoyed giving her a good start. By the way, her parents were close by, enjoying the moment and laughing with us.
Here’s the masterpiece:
I am hanging this wonderful picture in my office to be cherished. If she can navigate this scenario, I can’t wait to see what’s next.
