The hubbahubba and I have been together for nearly 15 years. I recall hearing him play guitar in college and feeling chills. There’s this beautiful undercurrent in our relationship – we flow in and out of a constant conversational stream about music and art.
During the first part of our relationship he had a band. He met some sweet guys and they wrote original songs, practiced, invested in studio recording time, produced albums, loaded in and out of shows (playing to hundreds and sometimes a dozen), promoted and pursued his dream.
I watched from the sidelines and supported him wherever I could… He stepped away from his dream to breathe and I began chasing my own dream. I practiced, created original art, invested in supplies and inventory, produced prints and cards, loaded in and out of countless shows (often with zero sales and sometimes with dozens of sales), promoted and pursued my dream.
Part of why we make so much sense is our experience pursuing artistic dreams and supporting each other through the years.
To celebrate our upcoming anniversary, I will be creating music themed work this week.
Here’s to many, many more years of playing and painting together. ^_^
