Reply Natalie December 14, 2020 at 6:41 pm I love how in each piece of art you create you tell a story, you add things that draw people in by the smallest detail, as to where you can stare at it for hours without a bore, because you just keep finding more and more symbolism and love put in the painting each time. Your work never fails to amaze me, rather its something simple or astronomical. Leave a Reply to Javier Alvarado Cancel ReplyName * Email * Website Δ This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
