Child prodigy?

Last night I saw this story on Sixty Minutes 2 about a 4 yr old girl who supposedly is an art prodigy.This 4 year old does abstract paintings which according to art experts are very rare for child artists.Her paintings sell for upwards of 24 thousand,not a bad income for a 4 year old at all.Naturally she would be the subject of much attention from art experts and other such persons.But the claim that she is an art prodigy takes a fishy turn when her father(who happens to be a painter himself) claims that the child cannot paint if she is being observed.Apparently,the presence of people in the room makes her nervous.Anybody else getting suspicious as yet?

Anyway,the father decided to install a camera so the child can paint and satisfy the persons who thought she was not the one doing the work.More than likely he realised that persons were becoming more and more sceptical. The experts claim that the painting she did under surveillance is different from the others that were said to be hers.So hoax or child prodigy,what do you all think?
