    Suhair Sibai You have a power of expression. You reach Deep within the soul and ask all the Poignant questions that we have difficulty answering.....Keep giving us those jewels Lia.

    philip mckay love the title of this and the red really stands out making a commanding statement to the overall image. i like the way all colours bleed into one another. excellent work.
