This is Scout. She looks so peaceful here in this portrait but it's a contradiction.
When I first saw her she was on stage performing at the piano and I was sketching the musicians. I thought "great, a piano player. Maybe I can get a good sketch. Piano players don't move near as much as guitar players do, right?" Wrong. She was all over the place belting out her song. Legs flying every which way. I just put down my pencil and watched in amazement. This girl can sing AND play AND dance. She not only feels the music - she IS the music.
