I remember attempting abstract back in the day (around your daughters age), I never found it that exciting.
I actually drew monsters, demons and horrific scenes when I was that age, I pelted them out every day, it was so much fun (trust me, I was a morbid child but I had good intentions ).
If it makes her happy, that's all that counts I guess.
Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen.
