On Saturday morning my sister, mum, Nora and I made an impromptu trip to the art gallery to see The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes.
My favourite portrait was Natasha Bieniek's Application, a self-portrait miniature. There is something about teensy tiny things I find so precious!
I must say, I'm more drawn to landscapes, so I loved pretty much EVERYTHING in the Wynne Prize. And while wandering through the Sulman, I found myself wishing Oscar* was there, as I'm sure he would have been asking a billion questions and 'whys?'
The absolute highlight however, was the new Young Archie competition, so much fun seeing the imaginative artworks of children capturing their loved ones. Particularly adored 6 year old Teddy Kidd's my mother and baby Chloe because she would sit still and 11 year Paris Jolly's my grandpa and Claudia. Totally delightful.
*Oscar enjoyed seeing pre-booked tickets to Peter Pan on the big screen with his Papa instead.

Apologies for my comfy pregnancy uniform of leggings, birks, oversized shirt and bulge disguising scarf! This is what I look like pretty much everyday.
