Lia Melia This is a wonderful piece, simple, powerful and strong. The composition, noted in another of your paintings, is structurally massive; it is a great gift you have of placing of your subject within the confines of your canvas ; you do it simply and without fuss. Your painting style is accomplished and reminds me of many of the Flemish masters; funny, I noted that and then read of what has influenced you. Well done indeed.
