We kick off this week with a piece of art that finds your humble blogger mixing a few different styles. What you see up there started out as a Sharpie doodle on copy paper, which I then painted over using a light box. My weapons of choice were watercolor brushes, and a few colored pencils and markers.

Basically, I did a sloppy, Picasso-esque line drawing of a reclining female figure and painted over it in an impressionistic manner. This was not a piece that was conceived as a clear vision. This was basically just improv. I was happy with it, although I did crop the image and tweak the colors a little after I scanned it.

If you want to see it bigger, just click on the image.

Meanwhile, Monday on The AIR, our week-long marathon of Radio Free Charleston enters the home stretch. The plan is to cruise into tomorrow, where we will present a new episode at 10 AM and 10 PM, and finish up the rest of the marathon in style.  Wednesday we are adjusting the schedule so that you’ll be able to hear one full episode of RFC every afternoon at 5 PM.   You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.
