Good Golly Miss Olley

Last year Good Weekend that once fabulous magazine (but that's

another story), that accompanies the Saturday SMH did a cover
story on the amazing Margaret Olley . Good Golly Miss Olley

was the title, it was then I decided that when I grow up I wanted
to be just like Miss Olley.

My thrill at the aformentioned Art Gallery was to see the portrait
of Miss Olley that won the 1948 Archibald prize by William Dobell.

I believe Miss Olley still creates, souvenirs flowers over the fences
near her home in Sydney's east and entertains interesting people -

Mmmm ... I'm getting there!
