Large Painting, 'Some People will Love You for You,' by British artist, Poppy Ellis.
In this rare self portrait Ellis is seen reclining on a green sofa, her arm behind her head and a long-fingered, ringed, tangerine and yellow hand resting across her chest. Her cyan dress patterned with orange and black flowers is hitched to reveal neon orange legs. She gazes directly at you, 'You can come in,' she says, 'just for a little while.'
