On Saturday, I attended the annual Penrith District Show, having again lodged five artworks in the art competition.
Wow! I was not expecting to see a ribbon! (Last year, the organisers rang me to check if I was coming to the presentation.) My little octopus, drawn and coloured a few hours after my Masterclass with Leigh Hobbs, scored himself a gorgeous red rosette for Second Prize in Drawing!
On Sunday, another meetup of the 52-Week Illustration Challenge Sydneysiders was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art's Cafe & Sculpture Terrace. It was great to catch up with fellow artists Louise Harland-Cox (and her gorgeous new twins), Patricia Ward, Jolanda Jarman, Cecilia Timm, Peter Hinton and Ramona Davey.
