(Above) Picasso's Girl
Mixed media on paper, 2010
I did this painting a few weeks ago. Some of you may remember seeing it in an earlier blog. It's one of my favourite pieces. It was inspired by the photograph below of Françoise Gilot.
Born in 1921, Gilot is a painter and a best-selling author but she is probably best known as Picasso's lover and muse. Below is an example of Gilot's paintings, Oceanic Woman:
