For the past four years, 16-year-old artist Shania McDonagh has participated in the Texaco Children’s Art Competition, an art contest for children in Ireland held every year since 1955. Just looking at the astounding portrait above, it may come as no surprise that McDonagh has won the top prize for her age category every year since she was 12, and this year snagged the top prize overall with this hyperrealistic drawing of a man titled Coleman.

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it toward others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

אני הולכת להביא
לך הכל— עוד
רגע ואני
נופלת



I’m going to give
you everything— another
moment and I am
falling.
