Margaret Olley

Margaret Olley Last Monday (25th July, 2011) night she slept, the panoramic painting of Sydney Harbour at last completed, and at some time in the early morning, Death surprised her. - Barry Humphries I love the work of Margaret Olley, her use of colour and brushstrokes never made her still life paintings seem still. Maybe, it's the way they move my heart. I might never have the opportunity to own an Olley and she may be gone but she'll never be forgotten.

"I've never liked housework. I get by doing little chores when I feel like them, in between paintings. Who wants to chase dust all their life? You can spend your whole lifetime cleaning the house. I like watching the patina grow. If the house looks dirty, buy another bunch of flowers, is my advice." Margaret Olley, late and great Australian artist. / Margaret Olley, a life in pictures gallery
