I was recently commissioned by the P&C Association of Springfield Central State High School to create a parting gift for our good friend Joseba Larrazabal, , the founding Principal of SCSHS. The finished piece was 100cm x 75cm, painted in acrylic on linen. Joseba was presented the gift at the recent SCSHS awards ceremony.
Following the schools motto of “Scale Great Heights”, Joseba is following his own advice and Scaling Great Heights in his career. Hope you love it Joseba, and best of luck in your new position.
