...not the band.

Oil on canvas, 36x36"

I've been trying for weeks to get a good photo of this painting. This is the best I've gotten so far. It's not perfect, but then, neither is the painting... so I guess it'll do.

can i do something of a similar concept and not post it on a website?

You don't even need to ask, and you can post it anywhere you like. Artists always borrow from each other. I didn't arrive at this idea on my own. It's a mixture of so many contemporary ideas that I don't even know where they all came from originally. Glad you like it though :)

No painting or drawing is perfect. but you seem to get pretty dang close. I admire each and every one of your works, and artists like you make me love this website. I can only hope to gain half of your talent, as you take my breath away with every painting you draw. Keep up the good work :)

Very great piece of work.
Sounds silly but it's almost sad how the band "Nirvana" has taken away so much from the beautiful meaning of the word itself.

I like Nirvana, but you are right. When you type in nirvana in the search bar, you usually get the band.

This reminds me of the Ewok Village in Star Wars :-) There's a map of it for a sw game i play :nod: This looks a little bit like it. Anyway, great use of bridges to lead the viewer around, it really works :-)

The journey seems longer from supporting idea to supporting idea in the beginning, then the begin to cross and depend on each as well as being much closer together; and then they get more complicated, more fanciful, before you reach the point of highest elevation and complexity... Once again your ideas for your work are stunning.
