This week we kick off things with a piece of physical art that, to be honest, probably isn’t finished. Over the weekend I decided to try my hand at another watercolor, this time inspired by a photo I took years ago at one of the Rod Run shows that shuts down Kanawha Boulevard every October.

My inspiration was a lovely ’55 Chevy Bel Air (correction: I have been told that it’s a ’57–thanks Bryan Pagan!), and this week I used real, textured watercolor paper (unlike last week’s piece, which was done on regular printer paper). I’m happy with the color and the composition, but I may go back over this with ink at a later date to pick out more of the details. To be honest, it barely got dry enough to scan in time to run here. I’m still re-learning a lot of techniques that I never really mastered in the first place.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 3 PM, and brings you eight recent episodes of Beatles Blast, hosted by yours truly.   At 3 PM, we will replay the very first episode of Prognosis, for no other reason than the show’s host, Herman Linte, is tied up with other work.

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