This afternoon I spent two glorious hours at the AGO with my lovely sister, Pandora. She was in town from Ottawa on legal business; she is a federal lawyer having previously worked in the Prime Minister’s Office, followed by a decade in Paris studying where I got to visit her and met painter, Antoine Paradacci – he of the truly equine proportions and had a fabulous three-year relationship. Of course, he painted me; we met at Musée du Louvre and promptly retreated downstairs where I professed no end of love, the moment he released the boa, behind a Louis-something-or-other armoire!  

We had a good time, Pandora and I, and all the Francis Bacon pieces really moved me.  The smaller Henry Moore sculptures, especially ‘Helmet’ were fascinating.

Life without art; I can’t imagine what that would be like!
