"Mini Monet" 9 Year Old Artist Sells Paintings for 250,000 Pounds!

Nine-year-old Kieron Williamson's latest set of paintings sold within minutes fetching £250,000.

I have always loved paintings, and for some reason been fascinated by French Artist, Claude Monet, and this is because he has a way of transforming the most mundane of landscapes to a master piece. When it comes to nature and arts, a field I have no authority in to be honest, I think Monet is awesome, and I think this 9 year old Genius agrees with me. 
A nine-year-old art genius nicknamed 'Mini Monet' is about to become a millionaire after selling his latest collection of 24 paintings for £250,000.

Kieron Williamson, from Norfolk, had his landscape pictures snapped up by telephone and internet buyers from around the world in just 15 minutes during a recent sale.
The youngster only started painting during a family trip to Devon and Cornwall in 2008 - before then he had just coloured in dinosaurs his parents had drawn for him.

But since then he has become an international art sensation with some of his pieces being bought for tens of thousands of pounds.
The paintings sold recently included two landscapes priced at £34,950 each while even small pastels which took him just a few minutes to paint sold for between £6,000 and £7,000.
Kieron's work first came on the market in the summer of 2009 when 19 of his paintings were sold for £14,000 in a sealed bid auction.
Three months later another 16 of his paintings were up snapped for £17,000 in just 14 minutes in his second exhibition at the Picturecraft gallery.

See some of his works after the cut.
