"There was what looked like a rock that she picked up and threw on the ground and it exploded," said Ilaha Omar, a Children of War Foundation member who brought the young girl to the U.S. to be treated for free at Shriners Hospital for Children Los Angeles.


The explosion destroyed most of her right arm and her right eye, scarred her face, and killed her brother.

The child impressed him not just with her ability to handle a brush, he said, but with her grasp of matching colors.


"She kind of has a facility for it if she wants to pursue it," Whaley said, who currently has his own large exhibit at Galerie Michael.
