Oil on canvas, 460x340 mm 1983. Elli is my longest-standing friend in Greece. When I gave birth to my third child, she caught two buses in the middle of the night to come to babysit, for 10 days as it happens. She was just 17 so it was a huge responsibility for her. When I left Greece, we missed seeing her, so this was painted while camping on her plot of land in Sarti, Halkidiki, for 3 whole months, adding a very sneaky 6 weeks to the summer hols in 1983. Happy times!
