We wrap up our “Chicago-Inspired Art” event here in Monday Morning Art for the month of March with a real physical painting that began life as a digital design, which I liked enough to transfer to a small piece of canvas board. Your PopCulteer and his wife managed to squeeze in a quick trip to Chicago before the scope of the Covid-19 Pandemic became so evident. Today’s art is not based on photographic reference, but instead is just my impression of the view of State Street, looking out the window of our top-floor hotel room.

Things have been a bit stressful for everyone over the last few weeks, and when I get stressed out, my art gets a little more angular. So I did this and scanned it and here it is.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 2 PM, and brings you eight hours of the one-hour version of Radio Free Charleston. These shows will be moving off the server at The AIR after this, so this will be your last chance to hear them for a while. 3 PM sees a new episode of Prognosis. Herman Linte brings you a show loaded with great new and classic prog-rock tunes.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
