I was honoured to be asked to sit for The Archibald Portrait Prize by the artist on my right, Janette Arnold-Collins. We are at the opening night of the Salon des Refuses, Hidden Faces of the Archibald, at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne.
The other paintings are the portraits that I have entered into the Archibald Prize, and have all be selected for the Victorian Salon des Refuses, or Hidden Faces of the Archibald. For the 2011 Hidden Faces of the Archibald Alan Kohler was the Guest Speaker at the Opening! My portrait of Deborah Forster, was also a finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award. My portrait for The Archibald Prize 2013, is Ms Gerri Christie, and this portrait was also successful at being chosen as a Semi-Finalist in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize.
