    Such a unique and engaging style Ludwig, needs the big view to see the text and strokes in the sky…
    So cool to see this nominated for SoJie 22.
    Big congrats, and looking forward to seeing you in the show !!

  • thank you for the kind words Bill, much appreciated. Yes the painting is 1 × 1m so it’s difficult to convey the true nature of it on a small image.
