It’s that time again. Yes it really has been four years since Brazil 2014…Welcome to the the FIFA World Cup 2018 where Russia plays host.

I wasn’t going to make a painting for this tournament but then I remembered a popular little James Bond film titled From Russia With Love.

There was only one way I was going to go.

She’s Had Her Kicks is an original artwork depicting the iconic shoe spikes of Russian assassin, Rosa Klebb (No.3) played by Lotte Lenya, deflating a vintage football from the 1970s.

A raccoon.
