I am very pleased with Wildflower Mist so far! It is quite different from my usual work. It is not from a dream but it does looks like one of my Dreamscapes. I have done a little more work on it and will replace the second stage file with the final file.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Friday we received a present on our back porch - a dead mouse. Clyde said it looked like it had been wounded so that is how we know it was a present. Yuck! later as I was going out I saw a cat near the car giving me a meaningful look. I told Clyde that it looked like the cat was asking me if I liked the present. I told it no and don't bring me any more. Clyde said he had better get a bull dozer and go through his stuff because I am turning into a Cat Lady and he had better get going.

Not true and it would take more than a bull dozer. He may need to lob a few grenades. Just kidding! Since he has lost 25 pounds I can't say the extra weight is more to love so I will just say the piles of his stuff in the computer room is more to love. I wish everyone could see the scowl on his face as I show him this post. I would take a picture but he would not like that.

I am on the second stage of a new Suggestions painting and, as usual, I gained something and lost something with this layer but I am still pleased with this floral that appeared out of the paint yesterday. Here is the first stage!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

For a number of days now Clyde has not been able to give me my wake up call from work. Of course, we assumed it was our phone and I was going to have to call the provider. Well, it turns out it was his phone at work. He tried to call with his cell phone and connected just fine. Since we have had a lot of trouble with our landline I told him that maybe he should bring that one home and they can fight it out.

Great phone joke. Someone left his cell phone at home and asks a friend if the sky is always blue like that. I'll bet a lot of people would see things they have never seen before if they left their phone home. Strange new world.

I am so pleased to sell another original painting! As I have said many times I live to paint but I can't take them with me so I am glad this painting has a great Kansas home! Oil paint is my main medium but sometimes I like to work in acrylics and I am pleased with this one. As always, prints are still available up to 60" x 47"!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Halloween and Christmas decorations are at the stores now. A Witch in one aisle and Santa in the next. I bought one of those parrots that repeat what you say in a parrot voice. We had one a long time ago but it broke so now I can put one out on Halloween for the kids to laugh about.

When we left the store there was a bake sale outside. It was called a Spook Sale. Clyde said that a Spook Sale must be when you don't know what you are getting until you buy it and then you are scared when you find out.

I finally finished my latest painting and am tearing myself away from it. It has been quite a ride with a lot of twists and turns but I got very close to what I wanted and now it is time to quit before I think I can get exactly what I want. Not possible in my opinion. We artists always think the next one will be perfect. It keeps us going! Here is the final file that I put on my website of Queen Annes Lace.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I can't believe this happened early Saturday morning. I had one of my very rare leg cramps and got up to walk around. When I got to the kitchen I thought I heard a strange noise and when I turned on the light it was Clyde doing exercises. I nearly had a heart attack to go along with the leg cramp. He said he always does exercises in the dark. The really strange thing is I did not notice he was not in bed when I got up. He is the only person to my left. Not hard to account for.

Anyway, my leg got better very quickly and he went out for his Saturday morning bird walk.

Cute burglar joke. A dog is being comforted by another dog about a burglary. The worse part about the theft was it was a cat burglar. Love it!

I am trying to tear myself away from my latest painting. It has worked out real well and now is the time to quit before I over work it but the changes I did today worked perfectly! One good think about impasto paintings is you get to the point where you either have to quit or get a spoon to add more paint.
I think one more day will do it and then I will get back to some Skyline Beauty paintings and maybe some Suggestions paintings and Center of My Mind paintings. Looking forward to not smelling mineral spirits for a while!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I learn a lot from Clyde. He is a walking encyclopedia. I hardly ever stump him. I did the other day. He was talking to me about a variety of tree that was outside our car window while we waited for Alan and his girlfriend. There were a lot of Dogwood trees next to the tree he was talking about. It occurred to me that Dogwood is a rather strange name so I asked him how it got it's name.

He didn't know so I decided that maybe it was named long, long ago right before people noticed that trees had bark just like dogs. I am surprised Clyde did not get out of the car and walk away.

That was a bad one! I guess I had better stick to the Wordman's humor.

I am so pleased to sell another print of Star City to a great Roanoke VA patron! The Rutherford Company sent me the invitation it was used for. They look great! This time the print is on paper and framed for a colleague. So glad to see my Skyline Beauty paintings gaining in popularity! As soon as I finish my latest wildflower oil painting I will return to this series.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Recently a store that serves great chicken and other meals re-opened after a break while they renovated the place. We love this store and buy lunches there often so we were so glad when they opened up.

The other day I went in and noticed they had a new floor which looks great ,and the serving area is different. Before, customers could see the workers cooking the chicken, burgers, etc. Now, that part is blocked off.

Clyde said maybe they thought it would be better if we don't see the times the food lands on the floor and one of them says it will probably taste better that way. Just kidding! Great place! We will be there for chicken soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I was chanting what I always chant when the Colonel comes on and points to five dollar meals.

Colonel - Here's a five dollar meal.

Me - Here's a fattening five dollar meal.

Colonel - Here's a five dollar meal.

Me - here's an extremely fattening five dollar meal.

Colonel - Here's a five dollar meal.

Me - Here's an incredibly fattening five dollar meal.

You get the point. Don't get me wrong. I loved KFC when I was a kid and didn't care about being chubby and I fell back in love with it when they introduced baked chicken for people like me and every one else that does not work all day on a farm, roof, construction, etc.

Clyde said he remembered that the Colonel was a slender man. He probably was fond of saying to himself, I got everyone hooked on this fattening fried chicken, made millions while I lived in my mansion and ate quiche.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Another day, another computer problem. Yesterday when Clyde called to make sure I was up I complained about how the computer kept spinning. It just would not wake up. He said to pour some coffee on it and put it out of my misery.

Sounds like a great plan to me!

Now, today I can't modify my latest Youtube without skips occurring that are not in the original video. Argh!!!

Another day, another computer problem. Yes, I already said that.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde spends his evenings checking on the hawk migration in the back yard. Lately, a bird keeps pecking at the computer room window where I am attached to this merciless machine. This bird keeps hiding behind part of the window frame so I can't see which species it is. I keep telling him The Bird Man is out back.

I told Clyde and he said he talks to a cat bird every evening before it goes to sleep,
What does it say?

Probably, why don't you take those binoculars and yourself inside so I can go to sleep without a huge predator by my nest.
Makes sense to me.

Cute parrot joke.

What do you call memory loss in a parrot? Polynesia!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I like to tease Clyde about the food he won't eat. He claims that he is not that picky but he is the only person I have ever met that does not like barbecue sauce. Yesterday I told him I was going to get groceries so he could have his favorite meal. His reply was,

Orangutan pie?

Now you know that is your second favorite meal.

Monkey Ghost Souffle?

That's the one.

Actually it was fish. As I have said before, Clyde hates fish. He forces himself to eat it once a week but he thinks we should all just let them keep on swimming.



Cute joke on the internet. What do fish do at a Foot ball game? They wave.
