Artist's Description

FEATURED BY ABSTRACT ART GROUP – 9th April 2011

THIS IS NOT A NEW PAINTING

I was a seventeen-years-old schoolboy when I did this painting in 1967. To get that into perspective, it was the year when the Beatles topped the album charts with Sergeant Pepper.

I felt my work was very amateurish, but recently I got a shock when I found a print of a Kandinsky painting (I wasn’t aware of him back in the sixties) and realised that he had used similar colours to mine. If only I had believed in myself in those days (I suffered extreme low self-esteem then) I could have continued producing art and might have now been at a further stage of development. Instead I let my own feelings of doubt and the criticism of others deter me from expressing myself. Seven years later I did start to do art again, but off and on for a long time before gaining enough confidence to show my work.

Please let this painting be a lesson to those who lack faith in themselves. Don’t allow others to define you. There may be many who dislike what you do, but there will always be someone who does like your work.

Here are my painting and Kandinsky’s:

I used watercolours by the way.
