Here is a true story of a child with dreams and a sprinkling of savvy…
I dreamed of being an artist.
After all, my mother was an exhibiting artist and I had already won prizes.
Surely, this could be my future?
One holidays, I worked diligently creating a series of pictures with oil pastels. Not your average childlike scribblings, these were unique.
You see, I had discovered how to ‘etch’ pictures so that they popped out in rainbow colours from a black oil-pastel-canvas. I created about 15 of these masterpieces and stuck them up on the wall with blue-tak.
An enterprising and creative child, I arranged an art exhibition, using my shared bedroom (my sister was unimpressed) and charged for entry.
From memory, I asked my Mum to invite some people to come to my exhibition!
Although I cannot recall the exact entry charge, I do know that back then you could buy a bag of lollies for 20 cents! I was rich!!
Did I have some inner-navigation that years later, I would exhibit and sell my art?
