Some People are Talented

It amazes me how some people have a knack for things that we call art. I invited a young student over several years ago. He looks at my silhouettes hanging on the walls. He says he can imitate them, so I gave him a razor and paper. He came up with these cuttings. My cat is a calico, and he even denineates her pattern. He is a good looking kid, but he cuts a way too masterful piece for himself, perhaps justified under the circumstances. I do not know which bustline he imitated, perhaps Peale?
