Boy did we LOVE this entry into the Spencil Art Prize! “Relaxing frog” by Grace McGlashan - aged 12 Artist statement: I love drawing and this time used special ink pens that look a bit like watercolours. It’s size is around 10cm on good drawing paper. Frogs are very cool and green tree frogs often look pretty relaxed. My older brother loved it so much he uses it as a screensaver! Don't forget the Live Winners Reveal is on tomorrow at 4.30pm AEST!
The gorgeousness continues from entries into the Spencil Art Prize...like this one! “Kondoolka sheep yards” by Martin Best - aged 6 Artist statement: This is a birds eye view of our yards filled with sheep. A shout out must go to all our regional and rural artists! A great portrayal of a very unique backyard. Keep up the great work Martin!
Artist statement: My friend James made up a character called 'pet peanut'. At school James and our other friends make up stories about the adventures that pet peanut gets up to. These drawings are how I imagine pet peanut might be. He can evolve from a simple peanut into the other creatures with different kinds of skills and powers. What a marvellous character James! And what wonderful illustrations! Our team loved pet peanut, as we are sure you will too!
This artwork is titled “Mistakes” by Sienna Guelfi - aged 9. Artist statement: I painted this in April 2020 when I was 8 and I was so upset as I couldn’t get it right. Then my mum showed me Picasso and I made it a very different picture. Now I love all the mistakes. Sienna’s work reminded us that there are no mistakes in making art, only happy accidents. Very wise Sienna. We love your Picasso-esqe painting style too!

As a 9 year old I love art and if I do not win I will never give up, I will keep on trying and the more I try the more I will be successful. I believe that everyone has there own unique ideas. I think that one day I will be up there in a gallery.' 🥰😍 Entries close tomorrow!

Alani says "Eularia is a soft, gentle mannered dragon that had always wished to fly with the stars. What you are seeing here is only a snapshot of her annual fly through the skies, brushing her wings against the stars, and wishing to one day touch the two moons glimmering above her". Kids Artwork.
