artistic genius or the opposite?

Usually T just paints "abstractly" (a nice way to put it) but this time I drew a butterfly on her paper and this is what she came up with. Coloring "in the lines" is a concept that is very new to her. She is suddenly able to draw faces too, and suns and put whiskers on kitties (I have to draw the ears). I think being able to draw faces is a huge developmental step. Anyway, I was really impressed with this butterfly but then I thought, do I really want a kid who colors within the lines? Maybe it's a sad day after all? Either way it's a beautiful butterfly.
