Mirka Mora - Not a Formal Woman....

Today I attended a lecture and workshop at the beautiful Heide Museum of Modern Art.
10 very lucky art teachers and me had a private audience with the very vivacious Mirka Mora. She is a true free spirit and I think we all left a feeling a bit more in love with the grand Madame.

We spent the afternoon drawing and Mirka hung out with us. It was a true delight! We made a little art and learnt a few secrets. Mirka helped me draw a serpent and then in her thick french accent declared my angles needed some breasts.

After the day had ended I spent some time back in Heide 1...... the light was shining through the windows and casting shadows across the floorboards. Magnificent!
Thank you Mirka for being so generous and open. xx
