Lego Minifigures 16: "Torvill"

Any Briton of a certain age will be familiar with the Olympic winning duo of Jayne Torvill and Christoper Dean. From Nottingham, they performed brilliantly in the ice dance in 1984, and won the nation's hearts (and introduced us all to the concept of figure skating). I think that this figure looks a little like the female half of the duo. That is why I have called this painting "Torvill", instead of "Figure Skater", or "Ice Dancer". If this one were to have a subtitle, it would be "In search of Mr. Dean". I think he's got her skates, too, because she certainly hasn't!

Mind you don't slip on that ice, Jayne!

Acrylic on canvas, 7 x 7cm.
