Finalist: 9-12 year olds
Claudia (the cat) adores my grandpa and they are virtually inseparable. Whenever I think of Grandpa, those thoughts are incomplete without the cat. Claudia grips her claws into him like she’s saying 'you’re not taking him away from me’. I love my grandpa; he cracks me up into hysterics with his funny impersonations. He snores so loudly, it’s hilarious, so the whole family gives him heaps. I wanted to reflect that in the painting. My grandpa is an amazing person and very kind. And most of all I love him so much.
