This weekend we took ourselves to the Townsville Show.
We did a lap of the showgrounds, but we didn’t go on any of the rides or buy any of the show bags. The boys did get into the spirit and eat dagwood dogs for dinner.
Our reason for going was to visit the art gallery to see Pip’s painting hanging.
I am immensely proud to announce that he was awarded a highly commended in the open arts under 18 section.
Imagine that! Awarded for his first ever painting. The boy has some talent! I hope this gives him to incentive to continue. My Pete and I would love to see him pursue a creative life. This has been one of the good things about his surgery. He has had to slow down and it has given him the freedom to follow his interest in drawing and painting.
It would appear that it may well be a very rewarding pursuit…
