Because of the way the calendar falls, it’s our last day of Edward Hopper homage month here at PopCult We’re taking advantage of our superfluous fifth Monday to bring you one more of my small-scale acrylic studies wherein I try to mimic some of the composition, color and shadowplay of the late Mr. Hopper.

This one might get enlarged for a bigger canvas with more detail sometime when I have all the time in the world.

This one was done smaller than the others with acrylics on thick board (which I’m running out of) and it’s inspired by a series of photos I took of Hale Street (as it meets Lee Street) from 2006 to 2014. I think I might’ve gotten close to the shadowplay I wanted here. When I enlarge it, I’ll either change the season, or eliminate the trees completely. I didn’t like the way they looked after I scanned this into the computer.  I may “turn on” the streetlights, too and make it a dusk scene.

If you want to see this one a bit bigger, just click on it.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a  brand new edition of  Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a new episode 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.

Nigel Pye dipped into his archives for another primo stash of amazing psychedelic rock, expanding your minds as he always does.
