And from there we walked through the Royal Botanic Gardens
Until we reached the Art Gallery of NSW to view the annual Archibald Art Prize.
The Archibald Prize is awarded annually to the best portrait, 'preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia’.
As with any exhibition there is always a variety of pieces to enjoy. Some to my liking and others not but they all make for interesting viewing and conversation.
We were to put on our walking shoes on Wednesday and do a walk around the harbour foreshore from Mosman to Balmoral but it decided to rain so that adventure has been put on hold for another day so Plan B it was - off to the movies to see The Bookshop. A movie that all 3 of us enjoyed. It was shot in Ireland and Spain with some lovely scenery. Whilst the move could be considered "slow" I did enjoy learning about the characters and the story behind each of them.
I have to admit that I have spent far too many hours getting my new computer sorted and learning where things are. After having had my old one for 7 years I could do everything without thinking now I have to "look where" is that button and how do I do that. However I did have time to whip up a cover for my new hot water bottle from some left over fleecy fabric.
Now that winter is here my feet will be cold until next summer arrives a hot water bottle is a must when sitting watching tv or reading to put my feet on to keep warm.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
