Pop visited us this week from Melbourne and brought with him a lovely bag of goodies from the shop at National Gallery Victoria. For Sabina, a paint poncho to protect the two frocks she alternates wearing every other day (sigh). For the past few days I have been loudly and repeatedly proclaiming that the poncho is sized for up to nine year olds – i.e for “big kids” to get her past the idea that it is a baby bib. So finally tonight while I did the dinner dishes she donned the Dr Dawg thing for a post dinner paint up.
- Sabina’s picture (on the right) is of a cat. Pointy ears. She painted her own name.
- I think the Paepae and Lido paintings are remarkably similar. They don’t get to paint as much since Paepae still eats paint (and chalk and soap), drinks paint-water, and puts more paint on the table, walls and Lido Ngakau’s head than on the actual paper.
- NGV will soon have an online shop.
- No matter how hard i try to arrange it, Sabina insists on wearing her headbands McEnroe style, all in.
