Ok, I've heard people say they were inspired by Kandinsky before... but THIS IS AWESOME.

You really do FEEL the Kandinsky in there... but it isn't just a copy of an extant Kandinsky. It really is something new!

I also like "Of Elsewhere", too. Has a much more Dr Seuss vibe to it. I expect Sneeches. :-)

Thank you for these very kind words.

I’m glad you pointed out that it’s not an exact replica but still maintains the vibe. I’ve seen a lot of art on Instagram with the hashtag #kandinsky that look like exact replicas. While that’s chill, it’s also much more chill to fuse one’s personal flair with the giants whose shoulders we stand in.
