This week our art is a bit of an abstract, imaginary cityscape, composed using lessons that I learned from imitating Edward Hopper for a month, but veering completely away from his style of rendering and level of detail. I’m sure he’d be appalled by it.

This was an attempt at using acrylics on paper for pens. It’s a study for a potential larger work, but I don’t know if I like it enough to transfer it to canvas. At least not without major changes.

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 love-themed editions of  Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a 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 Valentine’s Day collection  of amazing psychedelic rock, expanding your minds and your hearts.
