Should an artist exhibit his early art work?

I’m going to say yes. Because my Mother just gave me some of my earliest drawings. And I would like to share them, if only for their amusement qualities.

For me it goes without saying, that some of my happiest of times as a child was spent with paper and pencils. The subject of my art was never a worry, with no artistic blocks, or brain battles of  “will people like my work?”  These pictures were drawn without all the adult hang-ups which could interrupt the process of drawing. just the pleasure of letting the mind take the pencil and create.

Gregory is a modern artist, this is an example of his earliest art aged 5,

When the letter “S” was easier to write the wrong way round, but I like how abstract the work is, a primitive and immediate gratification in and of art.  Art just happened…except  know, I can explain my feelings associated with my drawings.

This was a time when Facebook hadn’t claim the mass rights on “Like”! I do like how I drew the train across the full width of the page.

Unfortunately for me, I don’t have any recollection of drawing these pictures.  Though to me, they are full of emotional value.
