I've got a Time Bomb. The painting illustrates this stunning scenes and delicious style, which captures details. It creates a sense of place and feeling and you can smell and even taste these strange scenes that only Lamb can have.  Lamb’s talent makes the grotesque and stunning painful beauty of her paintings; not a surprise; but; I still found myself stunned in the presence of her paintings.
