The winning entry in the 2007 Archibald Prize features “installation artist” Janet Laurence, someone who I normally wouldn’t give two hoots about.
I’m not quite into art, no matter how hard I try (sometimes). I have some talented friends and friends who are very passionate about art. I wish I could be more like them.
I met Janet Laurence last year as part of my niece-in-law’s Starlight Foundation wish. While I still have no idea about Janet’s art, I know that she was fantastic with her role in granting Milly’s wish last year – donating her time to teach Milly the finer art of finger painting and whatnot.
As clueless as I am about art, I was pretty excited to see Janet all over the news and in the press.
