This week finds your blogger/artist still working with pastel crayons. I’m currently dealing with a weird evolution of my Myasthenia Gravis, where the control of my fingers is not consistent. Pastel crayons are easier for me to handle than a brush, pencil or pen at the moment, so this week I decided to try a bit of a mixed media experiment.

I created a digital abstract piece on the computer, then, with a tremendous reliance on straight-edges, tried to recreate it in pastels on paper for pens. You see the end result above,

Over in radioland, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a classic episode of Psychedelic Shack, and then at 3 PM a classic 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 elsewhere on this page.

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. 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.
