High School Art

In high school, I thought I was a brilliant artist and could do anything I wanted.  When I started art college, it all changed.  I was told to stick with crafting and that my work was no good.  I was not an artist at all and was asked why I even tried.  It is very discouraging for teachers to tell their students this kind of criticism.  I was not prepared for that, so I dropped out of school and never returned.

Many decades later, someone saw my work and asked why I had quit.  So, I have been dabbling here and there.  One day, I will seriously paint again.

What do you think?
