Because Mrs. PopCulteer is a big fan of the work of Georges Seurat, and I hadn’t done this for a while, this week’s art is a star, depicted in Pointillism, with a limited pallet of mostly primary colors, done in acrylics on a cheap canvas board (Thank You, Five Below). After painting it, I scanned it and cropped the digital version heavily because, even when my hands are working well, I’m never happy with my borders.
It’s vaguely Christmas-y, which might be a theme for the next few weeks.
I’ve been working on and off (mostly off) with Pointillism since third or fourth grade, when a travelling art teacher taught my class the technique.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a special encore of the first two episodes of Nigel Pye’s Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a special encore of the the very first 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.
Our friends at Haversham are still sadly focused on reporting on recent developments with the Omicron COVID variant for their paying clients, so the fun radio stuff had to take a backseat again this week. Because of that, this week we are revisting the first episodes of all of the Haversham shows this week.
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.
At 8 PM, our Monday Marathon is a mix of Psychedelic Shack, Prognosis and Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, just to let our friends from the UK know that we miss them.
