Blue Ridge Cloud Burst is a colorful view of mountain ranges as seen from The Blue Ridge Parkway where my husband does much of his research on birds and butterflies. I am very pleased with the intricate systems of brushwork in this painting and the fall accents. The strong line of clouds adds a great accent to the scene. I am always fascinated with various atmospheric effects in this beautiful mountain region.
My husband, Clyde Kessler, is from Ferrum, VA and has been studying this region since he was a boy. His maternal grandmother got him interested in wildlife and he has spent much of his time trying to get others involved in the preservation of this wonderful region. He has worked closely with the Blue RIdge Discovery Group which has the aim of getting children outdoors to study and appreciate our surroundings.

I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for twenty years as Assistant professor. I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.
I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum. Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
