I came to a realisation as I ate my birthday dinner (yes, i know....it was a week ago....) on Sunday night. I was surrounded by Mirka Mora's glorious murals and suddenly I realised the similarities between Mirka and Christina's work - beautifully big-eyed, playful, mischievious impish little people; an innocence and a naughtines wrapped up in bright colours and childlike imagery. I find their art so much fun, so inspiring, so delightful.

And here endeth the birthday indulging and epiphanies(!) until the same time next year!
