    Gail de Cordova I agree abotu the flesh and blood in this work - really visceral but also seductive and lush somehow.

    Roberto Prusso Lia: The beauty of this image removes it from abstraction into the realm of high aesthetics!!

    Julie Shackson Another strong composition here Lia, and again, the fluidity of the line is mesmerising. I agree that the colours you've used add a visceral quality to the work. Love it.
