I painted this painting LIVE @ Skully's during the August BassJam. Painting to live music is a lot of fun and I look forward to the next one. This painting came to life pretty quickly, in just around 4 hours. I'll probably put some final touches on it. Stay tuned to see how it turns out.

This is my Cobble's Knot. The Cobble's Knot is from a novel entitled Maniac Magee.
"Maniac Magee is a novel written by American author Jerry Spinelli and published in 1990. Exploring themes of racism and homelessness, it follows the story of an orphaned boy looking for a home in the fictional Pennsylvania town of Two Mills. He becomes a local legend for feats of athleticism and fearlessness, and his ignorance of sharp racial boundaries in the town."
"His final effort to gain acceptance is by untying the famous Cobble’s Knot (a huge, grimy ball of string with a year's supply of pizza waiting for its vanquisher.) After finishing the task he is praised by everyone as confetti is thrown into the air."
I often feel there is a Cobble's Knot in my head. So it was good to get it out on canvas.
