Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting Ants Again...

September 5th, 2019

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting Ants Again...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I have been battling ants today.  We have a lot of trouble with ants so I went to work scrubbing the table and floor where they have congregated the most. They are also on the counters and having a big party in the bathroom.  I guess toothpaste is where the action is.

Anyway, I did a lot of the Yoga table top pose today and thought I had done some good.  An hour later they were covering up the table again.  That is when I shrewdly noticed I had not moved the plastic jar of honey.  The trail was leading right to it.  So, got rid of the honey and now there are a few stragglers wondering where the Free Food Festival is. 

Hopefully, we can eat on our table without obnoxious visitors this evening.  Fingers crossed! 

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube. My channel is Kendall Kessler. I am real pleased with my Imaginary Butterfly!  I will have a new one of my regular work up soon  I just completed another Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I tried something different this time with my latest Suggestion painting that I filmed and will present on Monday.  I had been covering the surface quickly with a large brush and then spending more time on the second stage after I dried the first stage.  This time I wanted to have more complicate systems of color like my main work so I used a small brush and took more time on the first stage.  A nebulous, and I mean nebulous butterfly seemed to show up so that is what I went with. 

The contrast between the butterfly and the background is not strong, so in the third stage I will separate the two and make it even more complicated.  Love to work with color! More than anything else, my work is about color regardless of the level of abstraction.  Looking forward to finishing the painting and I will have a link to the finished work here and in the description on the Youtube! My Channel is Kendall Kessler

I am up to 191 followers now and hope to greatly increase that number!  Cheers on a Saturday! 
Check out a representational colored pencil butterfly above.  The one I am working on is an imaginary abstract butterfly.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


 A long time ago I thought it would be a good idea to buy a small house so we wouldn't fill it up with stuff that we have to get rid of. Well, that didn't work. I have spent years moving things out and we really need more room for all of Clyde's records. 

A lot of his research needs to be in paper form rather than on a computer so, instead of scaling down, we will be scaling up. 
Last night when I made the very short trip from the kitchen to the other end of the house to find my glasses and other things, I thought about what it would be like in a big house. 

I told Clyde I had better sharpen up before we move. 

Well, if you get too sharp you might throw me out. 

No, you and all your stuff gets to stay.

That's a relief.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having Fun with an Elephant...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Whatever happened to paper forms? Today I spent an hour and fifteen minutes trying to straighten out an online service.  The representative was very helpful and she said all the problems I was having with the form was because it is made tricky in an effort to outsmart scammers and imposters.  Yikes!  She helped me fill out the form over and over again as it was refused for one reason or another. 

After an hour I told her I was about ready to open a vein.  She laughed and then apologized for laughing.  I wasn't offended.  It was just a joke but I was trying to indicate how frustrated I was.  I claimed victory and retreated.  Will try again another day.  ARGHHHH! 

Be sure to check out this week's video!  I was in the mood for a Whimsy painting this time and used a fun toy elephant bank my mother-in-law gave us.  She is giving her kids some mementos from their childhood. I think I turned it into an expressive visual experience! My channel is Kendall Kessle

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Multi-Art Tasking...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Wow! Today at the Grocery store I saw something I never thought I would see again!  Someone was underneath his car working on it!  I said to what appeared to be his wife I was amazed and didn't think anyone knew how to work on a car anymore.  She smiled and said, he can!  She looked very proud.  I don't blame her.  Everything is so complicated today that we need all kinds of help for just about everything we depend on. 

I have no idea how to fix a computer, T.V.,refrigerator, car, etc.  The computer takeover has made it especially difficult for a lot of us.  As I have said before, if they ever computerize a bathroom, I will have to get an out house! 

Anyway, still working hard on some Suggestion paintings,  youtubes, and a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River! I think I am taking the, I live to paint statement, to new heights or lows depending on how well my feet hold out!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Progress on new Blue Ridge Parkway painting

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Progress on new Blue Ridge Parkway painting

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I am pleased with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James.  I love to paint water.  I remember years ago reading about the friendship between Eugene Delacroix and Frederic Chopin.  Delacroix was an amateur pianist as well as a great painter so I am sure they had a lot to talk about. 

In one conversation Delacroix was attempting to explain the mysterious quality of a reflection to Chopin.  I don't think he quite understood but I know exactly what he was talking about.  No matter how clear the reflection is, it is quite different from what it is reflecting.  There is a limpid quality that I love to work with. 
Anyway, so far, so good!

Life with The Word and Bird Man Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are having trouble remembering things we need to get done.  Calendars don't help.  We forget to look at it so now we hang notes from the kitchen archway and cross them out as we get the chore finished. 

This seems to work for now.  But what happens when we are so used to the note hanging there that we forget to read it?  Not likely but possible. 

Clyde has to have eye medicine that is not optional.  The other day he was worrying about forgetting to get it. 

Maybe if we pin a note to your backside I will be sure to see it and send you for the medicine! 

Well, that takes memory problems to new lows or highs depending on where you pin the note.

  I can't believe I am finally getting to my blog.  I wanted to write something this morning but two many things got in the way.  Oh well, another Monday shot down the drain.  How does Tuesday get here so quickly?

I have started a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting and am trying to video tape the whole process which will take some time.  Then I am going to look into a time lapse version.  Hope that will not be too difficult.

I am pleased to present another Demo Youtube!  I am especially pleased with how this one turned out.  The painting has a cool blue atmosphere that really draws the viewer in!  Be sure to check out the Youtube on my channel and the painting here on Fine Art America!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Painting

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I am so pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Parkway painting to a great Virginia patron!  This one is of Rock Castle Gorge.  I have a number of paintings of this beautiful section of the Parkway.  It is my favorite section of the Blue Ridge and my most popular mountain painting is A Break in the Clouds which was done from this overlook. 

I use to tease my husband that he should have a mail box there since it is the main place where he researches birds and butterflies and where he has led many Hawk watches over the years.  As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available. 

I am also having a great time talking to other Youtubers about my new Demo videos!  Be sure to check out my latest below.  I should have another one up on Monday!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking into Buying Caramel Topping...

August 15th, 2019

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking into Buying Caramel Topping...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


A little frustrated today so I bought some caramel topping to add to my frozen vanilla yogurt.  I am one of those obnoxious calorie counters so my frozen yogurt will not be swimming in it. Hey, it has worked for me since High School and I finally have one convert. 

Clyde lost one pound a week for thirty weeks and has kept it off for two years.  He has no complaints about keeping up with calories.   Now he is as obnoxious as me about it but he wisely just makes his comments to me.  Since he lost weight without starving or giving up much of anything he normally eats he can't understand why others don't do that.

Anyway, too much to do and too little time.  That always gets me down.  We are going to the lake tomorrow so I will get away from all this frustration.  Shouldn't complain.  So many great things in my life to concentrate on and as a friend once said, "What is the use of complaining?  Someone will always complain louder?"  Isn't that the truth? 


Be sure to check out this weeks Demo painting on Youtube  Lots of great compliments on this one!  I am going to try to get another one up in a few days.
