Wasn't she great? Iheard her interviewed once, and she said "all the painters like to paint me, I look like The Magic Pudding!"

Yes she's a lovely woman, 82 she is. A very take me as i am if not i don't care lady. I wonder if she had the baby she fell pregnant with as a young girl and contemplated marriage to her gay friend. A fellow painter, Friend was his surname. look at her face and you can see she's experienced and tried everything at least twice.

My mum and dad knew Donald Friend, and mum saw the new Margaret Olley exhibition last week in Sydney. She loved it!

Patty said...

No, she didnt marry him. Or anyone.

I thought i heard her speak of the love of her life, a man. What about the child?
