John Thompson


I began painting seriously after partial retirement at the age of 70. While a law student many years ago, I attended evening classes at Edinburgh Art College, but soon after gave up hopes of acheiving anything in this direction. What I present now has therefore been a long time in gestation. Although my work is figurative, it is not drawn from nature or intended to illustrate. My intention is that each painting explains itself, but also that each is made more meaningful by the company of the other paintings."
