Happy Birthday, Joan Miró!



Joan Miró was born today, in 1893. I love his sense of surrealistic whimsy.

This is my attempt at a tribute. ahem.

I love the expression on your cat's face, what an attitude! (I have 3 cats). (it's also my birthday today too, so allow me a little self indulgence while I raise a toast to Joan Miro and moi ;o) )

I really like this, and I am sure that somewhere Miro is smiling at this tribute. I liked his art also. Along with Paul Klee, and Alexander Calder.

I've got a Twittering Machine post about Paul Klee a few days ago, by chance.

Might be of interest.
