Our art this week is a quick and sloppy small study for a potential large-scale painting later. It’s so sloppy you can probably see where I dropped my straight-edge on the canvas board right when I was almost finished, and was too lazy to clean it up.

This is an acrylic study based on a photo taken from the train in Staunton, Virginia. There were a few utility poles and lines that I didn’t like, so I left them out. When I do this on a larger scale I may leave out the guy who was just standing there, staring at the train.

We’re still working on fixing the glitch that prevents you from seeing a bigger version.  For now, to see it bigger try clicking HERE.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a recent episode of  Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a recent 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 at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.

Psychedelic Shack can be heard every Monday at 2 PM, with replays Tuesday at 9 AM, Wednesday at 10 PM, Friday at 1 PM,  and Saturday at 9 AM. Classic episodes can be heard Sunday at 9 AM as part of our Sunday Haversham Recording Institute collection.

You can hear Prognosis on The AIR Monday at 3 PM, with replays Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM, Thursday at Noon, and Saturday at 10 AM. You can hear two classic episodes of the show Sunday at 2 PM.
