Emelia and the Hula Hoop

This is still one of the favourite paintings I have done.  The photo is pre-digital and as a result this is not a fantastic reproduction.  In real life the colours are very intense.  It is of Emelia (Millie) and her little flappy plaits doing the 'Hula' hoop which was very popular in the late 1990's.  The grass bit at the bottom is not part of the painting.... rather just where I had to take the photo for light at the time with the old SLR..outside and against the white wall.  I have always been really pleased this painting has not sold.  I love the detail and the technical bits that are lost in the reproduction.  I like to lie in bed and  run my eyes over it. It satisfies me.
