This week’s art is another one of my timed paintings. I gave myself half an hour to crank out a painting of a ship at sea. It’s also a fairly tiny painting, done in water colors with a markers and a few pastel crayons on textured paper. I’m not entirely sure why I chose the subject matter, but all those damned Sea Shanties all over social media may have been a subliminal influence. If you’re looking at it on your phone, you’re probably seeing it at about 75% of its full size.

Meanwhile, Monday at 9 AM on The AIR, we bring you a couple of episodes of Radio Free Charleston that will be leaving the server soon. Then you can tune into a brand-new episode of Prognosis at 3 PM.
