Student Millie You, age 13 wanted to paint an old person's eye, but to look beyond the wrinkles and really see the depth and variety of experiences , and wisdom that an elderly person has seen over their many years of a long life. To convey they idea, she chose paint the iris of the eye lush bold strokes of multi-colored paint applied thickly with her palette knife. Millie says her painting is a reminder to younger people to look past the wrinkles and the superficial and find the inner beauty that comes with age. A pretty profound statement coming from a 13 year old!
