Richmond Art Supplies co-owner enters Archibald Prize | Hawkesbury Gazette



Co-owner of Richmond Art Supplies, Richmond resident Deidre Morrison, has entered the Archibald Prize with a painting of young Hawkesbury violinist Arabella Logan.

Ms Logan’s father Graeme suggested Mr Morrison paint Arabella for the competition, after Ms Morrison painted a smaller portrait of Arabella from a photograph.

“I thought that was a good idea. I’ve been painting portraits for a long time and I’ve entered a few Archibalds but haven’t been successful yet,” Ms Morrison said.

Arabella, from Kurrajong, is active in the community through her violin playing as well as through the RFS and making jams to enter in the Hawkesbury Show. She won the Community Arts Award at the Hawkesbury Australia Day 2021.
