Kenyan drawing artist Sheila Sheldon Charles has left social media users talking after releasing her new art on Monday morning.
Sheila Sheldon is a multitalented 12-year-old girl from Mombasa, Kenya.
In her new work, Sheila has sent a message of condolences to former US president Barack Obama after losing his BO dog last month.
Sheila used her creativity to draw a portrait of the Obama family including, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Sasha, Tasha and two dogs.
"Mr. Barack Obama and your family, I am Sheila Sheldon; I am 12 years old, I know I don't have much to give to your family to comfort the broken heart after the loss of your lovely dog BO, but I hope this portrait will bring closure to the good times with BO. I love expressing my pain and grief through Art, "wrote Sheila.
Obama lost BO, a Portuguese water dog last month and Obama described BO as a friendly and loyal companion.
Sheila said when she learned about Obama losing his beloved dog, she thought of a way she could ease his pain and found herself drawing the Obama family in one portrait.
“When I heard the loss of BO, I kept on asking myself how I can ease your pain with the lifetime memory; the Art crossed my mind only to find myself working on your family portrait. I know it's not much, but I hope it makes you feel good knowing someone somewhere thinking about your family. The rich also cry, and the rich need love like anyone else. REST IN PEACE, BO " added Sheila.
Sheila's creativity is amazing and has been praised by many, these are some reactions.
