Miro's Girl and Olympia

Miro's Girl

A Brushes digital finger painting

This painting is a nod in the direction of Joan Miro. I really enjoyed seeing his sculpture entitled Jeune fille s'evadant in the gardens of the Maeght Institute near St Paul in France earlier this year. 

I've not posted any new work for a few weeks: not because there isn't any work to post (there is!) but rather because I've been glued to the Tour de France, which I've been watching on French television thanks to satellite.

If like me your interests include art and cycling, you should check out the work of Toby Ward. Click here to find out more:
It's really good!
