thank you for the watch

The surreal mindscapes that you create in your artwork are absolutely stunning. I love your blend of geometry and organic forms in the fungal-like alien geometries you seem so drawn too.

Your art is fascinating, somewhere between Dali and Jules Verne. The skies are splendid too. Thank you for sharing, I'll keep watching.

Happy Birthday Andrew :sing:
You'r art is really cool and eye catching! It makes me think about alien life forms.
