Time flies, Time is of the essence and Your Time is up! Margaret Olley was a great champion of the ‘artists war on time’ as she always fought against it, she was known to work on her paintings up until the very last minute (something I can wholeheartedly relate to). Margaret would often say, ‘hurry, last days’ and would notoriously dab at an artwork at the eleventh hour whilst it was heading out the door to the gallery. Margaret was a great believer that a work is never finished, only abandoned”, this I believe is surely a trait of all great painters. In an interview a few years before it was her time to meet her ‘maker’ Margaret said: “When the end approaches, I might say to the good Lord: 'just one minute! I haven't finished that painting.”
When time isn’t up!
