Diana framed for life

Before heading off to the US, Nimbins most famous export, singer/songwriter Diana Anaid, dropped in for one last sitting with portrait painter and fellow-Nimbinite Neil Liddell at his Lismore studio on Wednesday.

Neil will enter his oil-on-canvas painting in next months Archibald Prize, one of Australias oldest and richest awards for portraiture, which has a first prize of $50,000.

The 54-year-old painter said that even if Dianas portrait did not win, he was confident it would be hung in Sydney as part of a show put on by Portrait Artists Australia, of which he is a member.

Diana, 29, a five-time ARIA Award nominee who penned the hit songs I Go Off and Last Thing, will soon be leaving for the US where she will perform at an international folk festival.
