Members Pavillion, Sydney Cricket Ground - Cricket Art Prize
Ok, Jimmy is a finalist with a brilliant painting, I really love it.
It was a very interesting but wonderful show full of many surprises and I learnt something about Cricket. It's all about the members stand. A beautiful piece of architecture sitting grandly on it's foundations overlooking a pristeen pitch which I had to touch.
They welcomed us with open arms and served up an elegant experience, one that I will cherish for some time. I'll definately be entering the prize next year, just ran out of time this year.
We both caught up with the ever so charming John McDonald who parted with a bit of gossip.
I do believe the highlight of the evening was being given permission to walk the field and boy did we walk it...
