Today we have a digital watercolor inspired by photos I took last July while riding on the “L” in Chicago. I managed to grab a succession of blurry pictures while we were at the Brown Line stop called “Addison.” This is the stop that always makes me think of Elvis Costello, perhaps when he’s afflicted with a cold (much like your PopCulteer is at the moment). Taking my cue from the photos and their weird interplay of light, darkness and reflection, I came up with this digital painting. I decided to go with less detail and more sweepy-swoopy brushstrokes because that style was more compatible with the various medications I’m taking right now.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon presents the first four episodes of Herman Linte’s Prognosis.. This will lead us to Herman’s regular timeslot, Monday at 3 PM, when you can hear Herman Linte with an encore of a recent episode of Prognosis. Herman tells me that we can expect new programs from the gang at Haversham next week.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
