Description: I have nothing in my defence for painting this other than pure self indulgence. I just love skating, recently taken it back up and remember fondly roller discos of my youth every Saturday morning at the local Leisure Centre for many a year. 

I adore 70s disco music in anycase and flaunting the retro vibe and cheeky sexiness, this just had to be painted to satisfy my soul...I loved painting it, and love the image...I may even get myself a tshirt with this on!
