#NOLAN100 - NO.5
"I sat between Sidney and Mary at a lunch and felt
We had known each other all our lives.
We talked of nature, life, friends, family and art.
It was instant love.
Two days later Sidney died.
I continued to see Mary as my museum The Andrew Logan Museum
Of Sculpture is close to the Rodd.
A mere moment in our lives but a deep meaningful one.
I knew and had seen Sidney's paintings over the years.
I chose DESERT 1986 - art gallery NSW
An explosion of colour and paint in this
Wonderful expression of pure joy of living."
