This week’s art is a work in progress, sort of. This is a very rough small-scale study for a future painting. I’m calling this one “Sketchy on State Street” because it’s a very sketchy pastel crayon depiction of North State Street in Chicago, based on about a dozen reference photos I took in 2018 and 2019.

This was just slapped out quick to try to get the composition down. I’ll probably rethink the colors, and it’s probable that the finished painting, which I’m hoping to do in high-detail acrylics on a much larger canvas, will not look too much like this.

But it works as a quick sketch, in sort of an expressionistic sort of way.

Meanwhile, Monday on The AIR, we bring you the rest of the Labor Day weekend marathon of Radio Free Charleston. You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player elsewhere on this page.

The plan is to run this marathon until Tuesday afternoon. If I get back from my holiday excursion in time, I may have a new episode of RFC ready to premiere next Thursday, instead of on our regular day.
