Early Beginnings

This may not look much, in many ways its not. I was just five years old when I painted this tree on an old piece of wall paper in 1970. It hung in the principals office of my primary school in Christchurch, New Zealand before being rescued by my mum.
It's a tree, it has roots, a trunk and branches and used to have real leaves stuck on but now long gone. Such were my early strides as a young artist. Such humble beginnings. I am so glad I still have it.
