Abstract Aqua Oil

*Inspired by an Arabic woman living in Tunisia who has become a dear friend and translator of my poetry. There is an accompanying poem to this piece, about our friendship, and her dilemma as a Muslim woman who respects her faith and loves her religion though she feels at times inhibited by its doctrines, and restrictions within expressions of art and images.
