Miranda & Mimi
102 x 46cm x 2, oil on board
Two girls dressed in very English riding clothes (and their school ties) to reflect their interest in riding. The Englishness is contrasted with the background of antique, hand-painted Chinese wallpaper from the library of their home. The girls both chose their favourite birds to appear in the picture. The pose reflects their close relationship. The painting is a diptych painted on separate panels, which can be hung together or apart. The foliage spreads across the two panels uniting them pictorially.
