Hunab Ku etched in basswood painted with alcohol ink and acrylic

Today’s ‘Bob Ross’ moment goes to…

masking fail while making a Hunab Ku

Hunab Ku is a Colonial term applied to the Mayan civilization, meaning One God (the Colonial term - not the Mayan)

I resonate with the form, because I practice Taoism, and its symmetry and movement remind me of the Yin/Yang symbol

Bob Ross because I masked it, and some of the paint came off when I took off the tape - I like how I fixed it though…

Measures 9x9

I need to figure out how to price this

Can’t really tell where the masking pulled away the paint–but if it bugs you, can you use a fine brush or something to lightly dab the area to make it less apparent?

And for pricing, can’t help you there…

Very pretty! What was your painting technique?


Works of art are always worth more than you think.



Lovely work! I tend to scroll through etsy looking at items of similar size/materials as the ones I’m looking to sell to get an idea of where prices are. Good luck!

I used brushes and makeup sponges
