CALLEN Fran-Drawing Chrissy Writing Lyrics-oils on canvas-155cmx125cm-2011
Fran's portrait of Chrissy Amphlett, of Divinyls, was shortlisted in the Portia Geach Memorial Portrait Prize in 2012. Painted as an entry for the Archibald, Fran had travelled to New York to draw Chrissy in her recording studio, with husband Charley Drayton. They were in the process of recording the song 'Summer Song' by their band 'The Tulips'. Recovering, at the time, from recent battles with breast cancer, Chrissy is pictured writing lyrics for her new band, The Tulips.
