These incredible works sell for thousands of dollars.
Since she was seven years old, Elisabeth Anisimow has sold $35,000 worth of her famous “living paintings.”
Rather than painting her scenes on a canvas, Anisimow paints a living person, along with their props and backdrop, photographing the exquisite results.
“You can move around but you still look like a painting,” the now 11-year-old prodigy explained.
Anisimow, who calls herself a “business artist,” is saving her money to attend Sorbonne in Paris and says she hopes she will continue painting for the rest of her life.
