Our art this week is a tiny mixed media painting of a building. It’s not an actual building, but one based on photos of many around Charleston. I wanted to mix architectural features into one image, then obscure the detail with the iffy technique.

This was done with a variety of paint markers, watercolor markers, colored pencil and a little bit of ballpoint pen. I was trying to create the illusion of a large painting done with oils, but in truth this was done on the back of an index card. Depending on the size of your screen, you’re probably seeing it bigger than the size of the finished art.

You can click the image if you want to see an even bigger, some would say “magnified,” version.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 3 PM , and brings you eight hours of talk shows, with Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle, Word Association with Lee & Rudy and The Best of The Real with Mark Wolfe. At noon, we bring you the three (so far) episodes of The Shut-In Show, with Rudy & Mel. Then 3 PM should see a new episode of Prognosis with Herman Linte, but we can’t tell you what’s on it because we don’t have it yet as we write this. We do have an idea that it will focus on a single artist.

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