Sunday afternoon I decided that I had enough of the news, so I turned on some loud music and cranked out a purely-digital abstract painting. This is the kind of thing I can do in my sleep. I laid colored boxes over one another, then colored the areas they overlapped with different hues, then warped it up a bit, did concentric negative patterns, unwarped it and slopped some digital paint over it.

It was more productive than scrolling through Twitter to see the latest outrage. I’m not finished being outraged, but I needed to take a break.

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

Meanwhile, Monday at 9 AM on The AIR, we bring you six episodes of Steven Allen Adams’ NOISE BRIGADE. Steven will be sucked into the vortex of the legislature soon, so new episodes of our Ska/Punk showcase might be in scarce supply for a couple of months, but we don’t want you to think we forgot about him.  Then you can tune into an encore of a recent episode of  Prognosis at 3 PM. This week Herman Linte brings us a selection of progessive rock tunes recorded before a live audience (back in the days when there were such things). It kicks off with Steve Hackett.

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.
