"Man with Golden Beard Faces the Unknown" - Picture of said matching pair of art pieces.
This painting was poured February 19th, 2020, about a month before Riverside County pandemic lock down went into effect. The family went into self-quarantine for being sick and I almost died of COVID-19. Crazy crazy stuff. You can read about it here in a manuscript submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office: http://www.familycraftsandgames.com/f...
Just look at that color shift!
The music is "El" by Danny Dannels, previously recorded and posted here for exclusive music content. https://youtu.be/SlpOfzpo6Qg
Custom lacquer is Mentality Nail Polish. The lacquer used is the samples from the Arminex production era that we saved for five years to meet FDA and EPA requirements. A source of such heartache at the time as we battled a malfeasant corporation, the paint itself has gone on to become integrated and completely consumed into various artworks.

Watch the video below to see how this painting was made!
El is original music recorded by Danny Dannels and published May 20th, 2020. This song is part of his background track repertoire for use in FCG, Family Crafts and Games, video production.
The cover is a picture of Danny Dannels after recovering from COVID-19 and original image can be found on his Facebook. The melody was recorded on a black Esteban 8th Anniversary Classical Guitar with reverb added. The solo was recorded on a black Esteban steel string guitar with compression, distortion, and reverb. Both guitars were unopened in original package until late 2019.
All audio recorded on a Blue Yeti USB microphone. Audio processed in Audacity. Video processed in Kdenlive. Project processed in Ubuntu 19.10 using a Dell Optiplex 790. Original photo by Hillary Dannels using a Samsung Active 8 phone, at the house, in the backyard, by the garden wall, after not freaking dying of COVID.

This is the second in our series of abstract rock painting and of lacquer pouring, "California Wildfire".
Hillary uses richly colored custom lacquers to paint decorative rocks. Make art and share it with the world.
A YouTube first, abstract pour using lacquer as the medium. Sanding left the surface super smooth and glossy. This is an ongoing art series using the infamous Arminex nail polish base that we saved according to regulations. Oh, the scandal! Oh, the drama! Well, we took all that pain and frustration and sorrow that came out of the Arminex International, Inc. fiasco and made it into art. Find every opportunity to turn your pain into something beautiful
I am happy to share one of my favorite jazz solo pieces for guitar. Music is such a huge part of our family. We have spent so many hours playing for the kiddos and dancing and singing. Izod button up dress shirt and lumberjack hat were just perfect for that autumn feel.
