I thought drawing a dinosaur would be interesting. I look forward to travelling back to the dinosaur museum in Canberra.

I've thought about what I want to do after COVID lifts- I want to spend time with my friends and have a good time! This is a painting of us sitting in the living room. We can watch movies and paint nails and gossip about boys.

I chose the blues for the background of my work because they are the colours of the uniforms at Ashmont Public school where I volunteered before isolation. The colours I chose to paint on the blue remind me of the different personalities of the children.

I glued the tiles onto the canvas board and then added some paint to brighten it up.
