Matching specs! She makes the painting look quite large when it isn't really.
Her one question - "why did you make my hair red?"
If you're quick and don't blink or you'll miss it, my work is featured at the very beginning.
My modestly-sized artwork dwarfed by Dagmar Cyrulla's 'Highly Commended' huge self-portrait and Tim Storrier's even larger winning entry (out of shot) further left.

Selected as one of the 30 finalists! Out of a whopping 1,131 total entries submitted this year.
So my first ever public hanging will be as part of the exhibition of Moran Portrait Prize finalists at Juniper Hall in Paddington until December 17, and then various regional galleries in 2018.
I'm not sure if I see mine in this montage of all the entries arriving, but I'm sure it's there somewhere...
I received an email this morning to inform me that I've shortlisted as one of the 200 semi-finalists who now need to physically submit their paintings for final judging and closer scrutiny.
Up to this point they had been judging purely on the electronic (jpg) images submitted, now it's the real deal.
