Exceptional effects on this creative image, Pom! Love the black frame and the black portions within the frame. Great use of Arabic language throughout.

He looks like a figure iin a bible story ~ but then, you've already explained who he is, haven't you? ;-D
I believe we're looking at a winner here.

Hi Mare! :D I had a real "time" figuring out who he was. Darn it. Maybe he is really King Solomon or someone? Rats!

Do you really like it? I know it might look a bit controversial to do a piece like this one...Using a whole different language etc...but BP is supposed to be world wide and for all people. Even "Layth", right?!! :D

(Besides what has ever stopped me from being "different"...?) HeeHee...

Thanks so much and see you soon at YOUR gallery!

Night night!

Hi everyone!!!!!

I sure feel sorry for the people and pets all around me here at home. They are my DDR victims! Hahahahahaha! I usually only experiment with my own "mug" to keep the peace. Dale liked this one however and it was fun to post.

I'm really enjoying your feedback. Thanks so much everybody and Yes...I knew some of you would recognize who this was. HeeHee...

I hope you all have wonderful days!

Laura E. Swan level-classic 12/3/2012 10:47:16 AM

Hi guys! Yes. He owns a few camels. 350 of them to be exact. Or is that 350 horse power he has? I get confused. Heehee...

I enjoyed making this.

Steve, is my forte Arabic or DDR??? HeeHee...
