Creating Art, making my own series of Artist oil paints from nature and all creative things. Recently rebuild my computer {Not for Gaming} and then Garuda descended on me,but always a BIG Linux fan and still learning. First photo is working on the painting "Flow" and second painting depicts the mess of this world during these troubled times and current upheavals in the financial world and markets with the unknown ominous territory of the "Great Reset" looming!!! " Perhaps sometime in near future I will create something around the mythology behind Garuda

Hi @joejoubert

I am pleased to see your artwork.

You can share your future artwork at "Show your artwork" page.

And I think it is a lovely idea to have some wallpaper with oil painting as default.

But I want to confirm that are these your works?

My hobby is learning Argentine Tango and my passion is dancing it every chance I get. My wife and I are evolving into fanatics. Even covid has not stopped us. We have the lessons in our dining room and we go out and dance it on the sly! Oh--and Linux too. I love to tinker with a Linux install until I break it and then try to fix it. Garuda is my current project.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I have a hard time staying focused on one hobby.

I have a tendency to go very deep into my various interests/hobiies for short periods, then switch to the next on a never ending cycle.

Traditional art:

  • drawing
  • painting (primarily oil and watercolor)
  • mixed media art
  • alcohol and watercolor marker art
  • pottery
  • graphic design
  • poetry

Computer aided graphic design and painting:

  • Gimp
  • Inkscape
  • Krita
  • Various others I'm learning

Other hobbies, some new, others lifetime:

  • Stamp collecting (often as a way to learn a countries history)
  • Pen and Paper based Roll Playing Games (Dungeons and Dragons, D20 Future, etc.)
  • Hobby Farming - chickens, gardening - organics and heirloom vegetables, apples, etc. Permaculture based methodology.
  • Primitive survival skills
  • Hunting related items - building rifles, shooting targets, etc.
  • Motorcycle riding
  • HAM Radio
  • Reading novels, non-fiction, history, the Bible, etc.
  • Dead technology collecting, 8 tracks, cassette tapes, records, old computers, etc. Although records are back in style. I have an Apple II e, an Mac SE30, and a Mac Quadra 650 for example.
  • Woodworking - mostly primitive functional stuff
  • Security testing (not kali/blackarch/etc, just a small subset of tools that I actually use, I've been slowly growing the list over time)
  • Linux as a home desktop environment, not just as a server I used at work
  • video editing (kdenlive, pitivi, shotcut)
  • Audio production (Ardour, audacity)
  • Music writing (Musescore, and various other software tools and plugins)
  • 3d modeling (Blender)
  • Storyboarding both as an art form and possibly for video production (Storyboarder)
  • Script Writing (KIT Scenarist, telby)

I would say most of my time during warmer parts of the year (about half the year where I live) are spent on my non-computer related hobbies (I'm mostly outside), while winter months are focused on the others. Linux has been what has enabled many of the more recent additions to my hobbies list due to the huge amount of open source software available for things that would have cost thousands in investment just to try.
