This week finds your blogger/artist still working with pastel crayons.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m currently dealing with a weird evolution of my Myasthenia Gravis, where the control of my fingers is not consistent. Pastel crayons are easier for me to handle than a brush, pencil or pen at the moment, so I’m sticking with them again this week.

This week’s piece started out as just a casual doodle of the female form. Then I decided to play with colors and go in an abstract direction with it before changing my mind and making a rough drawing of an alien-skinned lady at the beach.  It’s not one that I put a lot of prior planning into. More like a collection of happy accidents.

To see it bigger and uncropped, try clicking HERE. If you’re looking at it on a desktop or laptop, that version is probably bigger than the size at which it was drawn.

Over in radioland, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a classic episode of Psychedelic Shack, and then at 3 PM a classic edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past half-century, Prognosis.  You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player elsewhere on this page.
