The boy has real talent, and whatever price his paintings fetch I am pleased for him. However I'm sure he started painting for the sheer pleasure of it, and not for the money. Although that may now change.
and I know the area in which this child lives and works. He's extremely good for someone his age, and no doubt he'll continue to paint, although I doubt that his work will be so highly valued as he gets older, and the novelty value wears off.
It's worth making the point that none of his pictures sold for £150,000 - that was the total raised by the entire collection.
