I mostly feel sorry for him
How's that gallery doing now?
A visit to Holt gallery and art materials shop Picturecraft with dad Keith - an electrician-turned-fine art dealer - also attracted the interest of father and son owners Michael and Adrian Hill.
They suggested Kieron join them in signing up for a 12-week course of watercolour painting classes with respected Norfolk artist and author Brian Ryder, whose latest art book sold more than 10,000 copies.
Picturecraft also kept Kieron stocked up with free art paper offcuts and end of line equipment.
Kieron has produced pictures of Burnham Overy Staithe, Kelling, Venice, Cley and Morston, as well as working at home from books and art magazines donated by Picturecraft and learn-to-paint videos produced by Mr Ryder.
His latest work includes pet portraits and a series of studies of Holt landmarks including the town's war memorial, Gresham's Pre-prep School, and the Owl Tea Rooms.
Kieron said: "I like painting Morston best because of the boats, and because it's got a little estuary at low tide."
Mr Ryder said: "I've never met anyone of Keiron's age who can do what he's done. I just can't fault him and I think he's got the confidence to take his painting further, but I also think his mum deserves great praise for the huge amount of effort she puts in coming with him to classes and helping him keep his focus."
Picturecraft has offered to sponsor the youngster by framing his work, with Ms Pennington agreeing to put it in the The Last Picture Show window as part of Holt arts festival.
Adrian Hill said: "Kieron is absolutely fearless; he paints like someone who has been painting for years. His colour mixing and his confident brush strokes are enviable, he has a real passion to his work and I think the fact that he is so young is just incredible."
Kieron's first exhibition, which opens at The Last Picture Show in Town tomorrow, will coincide with his seventh birthday on Sunday and he has already received a couple of early gifts - canvases, brushes and the offer of one-to-one tuition from Tony Garner, and the promise of a Christmas show at Picturecraft.
