Ahaha that's really silly.

I'm glad you feel I did her justice!

We just hit our five year wedding anniversary back in July.

Wild to think that the Hubski family has been around that long.

I still remember fondly in college when I'd bake a pizza and eat the whole thing while commenting and browsing around this site. I'm very grateful for its existence.

Good eye!

I left it out because I felt it was a detail that would have distracted from the overall impact of the image. In hindsight, I would have also liked to omit the branches in the background.

This is a canvas I stretched myself.

Yeah this kid is wild! His instagram is so vast, and he creates amazing beats on the fly. I'm excited to see what he does when he's older.

Dude, you gotta embrace the bass face!!

One of the best Salsa tunes of all time

I would have to imagine then that you're familiar with Punch Brothers, the group Chris Thile started a while ago?

oh my glob!

I saw these three, along with bansuri player Rakesh Chaurasia, this past year at our local symphony center. It was the most spiritual musical experience in my life, and that's not just because I had taken LSD before.

that would be tragic to have your art appropriated by a cause rejected by the creator

Thank you!

Those gooey bits are COVID-19 particles floating about around us, in mucus, spit, etc.

Haha, that's my, on a video call with friends. I've been video chatting with a lot of people recently, mostly with the members of one of the musical groups I'm in.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  200 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: I Painted My Feelings About The COVID-19 Situation

much appreciated!

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  200 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: I Painted My Feelings About The COVID-19 Situation

thank you, I greatly appreciate the kind words

I'm most definitely influenced by art from that time period, most importantly the work of Wasilly Kandinsky. Especially as he moved toward more refined abstraction in 1922.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  207 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: I Painted My Feelings About The COVID-19 Situation

thank you, I appreciate it

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  207 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: I Painted My Feelings About The COVID-19 Situation

most definitely! I was actually planning on creating a limited run of giclée prints.

It'll have to wait until this whole thing passes over though. The print shops are closed and I'm reserving my limited funds for the necessary items, such as food.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  207 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: I Painted My Feelings About The COVID-19 Situation

thank you!

thank you!

I've been considering painting a series of musicians in this style.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  268 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: "The Drummer" (new painting)

Oh yes, completely. Kandinsky is easily my favorite artist.

Haha, I figured you'd like that bit!

Happy to create with you again
