I like it--- and the message it is saying. The colour work is really beautiful, and the texture to the colour is lovely. It's a nice surface, gives a little life. That's what I like about watercolours. The work is wonderfully detailed, too. Good work!

Challenging a tradition. Asking only for equality. Fighting for your rights.

Still. And it's XXI century...

There will always be people out there looking to hold others down, so there will always be rebels.:)
Both sides refuse to back down so there is no peace....for now.
