I think Google had a hard time with some of the translation, but I unoorstded the point. It is very true that one must feel free to write and play and do whatever THEY want in THIER journal. Much Love

Are you sure she was Anna May Wong's sister? From what I untsaedrnd, Anna Mae was one of seven siblings and had two sisters. Her younger sister Mary committed suicide in 1940 at age 30 and her older sister Lulu was born in late 1902, though that is all the information I have on her.

The work is vertical format painting. It is best and perfectly suited for modern Arabic interior design style of home decoration. I do like the artwork of Antonio Gargiullo A Quiet Retreat. He painted old man sitting on the chair with book near him. He is quietly smiling when listen woman. A beautiful and lively woman stands behind him and also smiles. They, I guess, are flirting. The woman is nicely talking and very seductive. The painting is peaceful with natural sense of depth and space. Amazing [Expand]
