Blue Ridge Parkway Artist  has Decided on Next Floral and Teaching them to Swim...

Well, I finally decided on my next oil painting and started on it yesterday.  I am going to paint a creative interpretation of a flower garden.  I was thinking of another wildflower painting but changed my mind.  I am working from a photograph that I took of part of a flower garden and will greatly change it. 

The photograph will mostly provide some ot the spacing and the types of flowers but I will provide my own expression and may even change the colors of the flowers.  I wish I could explain what I do but I can't and it really doesn't matter that much. 

It will be a creation of my own making based on something I saw that will work well with my intentions. It is always a journey from start to end no matter what direction I take.

Life with The Word and Bird Man- Clyde Kessler
 
I think I have mentioned before that when I was young I decided the best way to avoid having an alcohol problem was to not drink at all.  You can't miss something you never had. 
I don't say this to brag at all. I am just really into logic and I saw several of my Dad's friends with a raging alcohol problem and I didn't want to make life more difficult than it already is. 

My Dad did not drink at all.

There is nothing wrong with it, I would rather just leave it alone and Clyde also has left it alone but his reason was much more personal.

Anyway, we two teetotalers got a big kick out of a funnie we saw on an old movie the other day.  One man was drinking and the other was not.

The one that was not drinking said, "I don't think drinking drowns problems.  It just teaches them to swim."

I am having a hard time deciding which direction to go with my next painting. I was thinking of a cultivated flower garden but now I still have some ideas for a creative wildflower painting.  Flower gardens are beautiful but I prefer the interaction of wildflowers and I am not surprised that Natural Rhythm is my most popular floral.

I am always amazed at the beautiful designs found in creeks.  It is like an artist that has studied design for decades placed everything in a perfect composition.  Sometimes I arrange things differently from what I see for a strong effect which is what artistic license is all about.  It is always an arrangement regardless of the initial inspiration.

My last floral was mostly made up based on systems of wildflowers I have seen. I place the flowers in patterns that I have found in many natural arrangements. Anyway,  I hope to get past my hesitations soon and get started.

I was out of gesso but it arrived a few days ago so I have primed the board.  I can't believe how different the gesso is.  It looks like whipped cream. I guess there is a change in how it is made these days.

Time to step away from the disheartening news regarding the pandemic.  I am discouraged by all the hype that it is a hoax to interfere with the upcoming presidential election.  I hope people do not fall for that.  This virus is nothing like the flu.  Don't fall for the line that it is not a devastating illness. It is. Stay safe!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Got out The Pen and Ink and Where is that Snickers...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist  Got out The Pen and Ink and Where is that Snickers...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Latest Youtube. My channel is Kendall Kessler

Well, I did something today that I have not done in many years.  I got out my pen and ink supplies and finished a pen and ink drawing I started a long time ago.  I am anxious to get back to my oil painting work but I have a number of old pieces that I have been meaning to complete.  That was quite an experience.  I demonstrated part of the work on my latest Youtube and was so surprised the ink didn't run down my hand. 

Pen and ink drawings are done sitting down but my Youtube set-up is vertical. I decided to give it a try and didn't have any problems.  I'll never forget demonstrating pen and ink in my Hands on Art Appreciation class years ago.  I didn't have the great computer set-up that came later so I taped a piece of paper on the black board and demonstrated that way.  Of course, the ink ran down my arm which is embarrassing in front of fifty people. 

I actually had fifty students at a time try pen and ink with ink wells on their desk.  When someone accidentally dumped the ink well all over the desk and floor I realized I should give them tape to secure the well.  Much to my surprise there would always be at least one student that would knock the well off even though it was taped down.  So I wisely switched to a fine point sharpee and had them buy them, too. 

Teaching can be quite an adventure, especially for people like me that try unusual approaches in a lecture room.  Anyway, I don't have the finished drawing uploaded to my portfolio yet but I have included another one of my pen and ink drawings below. Check it out!

My file for the pen and ink drawing Black Rail is too big to so I uploaded Snail Kite instead. The address

Life with the Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Clyde and I got a laugh out of the response to a joke I shared on Facebook.  As I have mentioned before I do two things to keep my weight down and I got Clyde to do the same thing.
We eat a balanced diet and we count calories. 

I saw such a cute joke with Miss Piggy about junk food that I had to share it.

I have an eating disorder. I am about to eat dis order of fries, dis order of wings, and dis order of nuggets.

Here is my friend's response.

Not you. Junk never passes your lips.

True, but I couldn't resist sharing this! So cute! Now, where did I put that snickers bar?

Wow, I am sitting on my hands when I come across certain posts on Facebook. As I said I am no longer posting rebuttal comments because I don't think they help and I just get called offensive names by people that disagree.

Still, I would like to say here where I think most, if not all of my followers are like-minded people, that we need to fact check some of the outrageous claims by some people on Facebook.  If you think that the Swine Flu was worse than Covid-19 so we shouldn't have to wear masks or close schools since that didn't happen with the Swine Flu, please look up the rebuttal articles. 

Covid-19 is much worse and it is not on the way out any time soon.  On a good note, I am having a great time going back to older work that I wanted to change in some ways.  Still getting some clean up work done and hiding out with my family. 

I feel like we are in a prison but it really is a nice prison!  Hope we will be sprung in 2021. Cheers and stay safe!

Lot of interesting posts on Facebook that I am not going to comment on.  I don't want to be called names by people that disagree with my opinions so I will just voice my opinions in like minded groups where I won't be verbally attacked. 

A friend suggested I do that and I am going to consider his advice to be a "boat" I should take.  I love that joke about someone in imminent danger that wouldn't take help because he knew God would get him out of the mess. The situation involved possible drowning and one friend came with a boat for him.  When he didn't survive, he asks God why he didn't help him. God answers that he sent him all those people  but he wouldn't take any help. 

So, I am taking this boat and I think it is sad that many of us are verbally attacked on Facebook by people that insist their opinion is the correct one. 
Back to what I love, my artwork.  I am still working on some unfinished pieces from years ago and it is a great experience.  Lots of memories, some good and some bad. 

Cheers!

Here is one I hesitate to put in writing but I think it is right on the money regarding our political climate right now.  Hope no one is offended but this is  just some humor. No one needs to take it seriously.

Clyde believes that all people are jackasses at least once in their lives but there are some that are flaming jackasses and the torch remains lit throughout their lives. 

LOL!

Still taking flack off of Facebook people but I will not stay out of the problems the US is in right now.  I do not think the reports of death from Covid-19 are falsified and they can in no way compare to our annual influenza deaths. 

I think all these posts that masks don't work are wrong and I will continue to say that.  I will continue to share posts about how we need to take this virus seriously rather than think it is a hoax designed to harm Trump's chances of winning a second term.  This is still America and I have just as much right to my opinion as the people that think I am wrong. 

Two people said God help us if I ever get elected president.  What a ridiculous thing to say.  I never said I was consider running for a political office. 

Anyway, I am having a great time going back to some drawings from many years ago that were never finished.  I decided it was time to take a break from mineral spirit fumes and get into some other mediums.  As I have said before, I have never met an artistic medium that I did not like.  Right now I am finishing a graphite drawing from my school days. Glad I still have it!

Some of the funny things Clyde says are especially funny to me because his humor is unlike any humor I have ever known. 

Both of us are getting so tired of hair loss commercials.  There are a lot of guys that shave their head on purpose these days so what's wrong with being bald?

Anyway, Clyde said they should look in the mirror and hold up a watermelon next to their head.  They might think they really have hair after that. 

Weird humor, but I love it!

So pleased to find a great home for one of my personal favorites, Tulip Burst.  I mailed it yesterday after taking a few more files of it.  Really sorry to see that one go, but, as I say all the time, I can't take them with me. I decided to leave a file of it here again with the link for prints.  I can't explain why I think this is such a strong painting but it has to do with a quality that I strive to achieve in all my work. 

When I was working for my MFA a professor said to me that a critic once said great artwork has a sensuous surface.  Pretty sure I  mentioned this before but it bears repeating.  I always think of this when I paint and I think this surface is especially sensuous.  

As I was going over my mailing list I thought I had better check out a great Virginia patron that bought three of my large paintings and hired me for a commission. I didn't know her age but she was certainly over forty.  Her husband was a Forestry professor and they both were great people. 

I checked the obituaries and saw that she and her husband had passed away.  I know she had children and I hope my paintings will go to them.  Artwork gets passed around but as long as it is some where it can be seen that is enough for me.

Still sharing posts on Facebook and catching a lot of flack.  Also getting a lot of support and many friends share the posts I think are very important right now.  I think we all need to be diligent to pay attention to what is going on in our government regarding the handling of this virus. 

I don't think political figures should be hosting large crowds of any kind right now and it is my right in a free country to say that.  Covid-19 is not a hoax and those of us that know it should proclaim that fact loudly.

Wow! Facebook sure is a hornets nest if people don't agree with you.  During this difficult time I share posts that I think are important.  There are famous professionals that I think should be getting respect and support but many people are determined to call them liars and misinformed. 

Some of the comments are rude.  It has been my experience that most people do not really want to debate an issue. They just want to insist they are right and you are wrong. 

I refuse to get into a debate on Facebook, especially with people that insult people.  So I just ignore the comments but I will keep on sharing important information during this awful pandemic.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, we are back to fighting with mice.  We used a Have a Heart trap and caught several but then one of them figured how to get out of the trap so we went back to the old kind. 

Either they are not working right or we have one smart mouse right now.  Lots of evidence of a mouse, the bait is gone, and no capture.   We are going back to a Have a Heart trap but this time we are getting the expensive kind. 

I told Clyde if this doesn't work he will have to stay up all night with a rifle and get that varmint! LOL!

Not a lot to say today.  Still working away and trying to stay upbeat which is hard considering the spike in the number of viruses and deaths.  The numbers in Southwest Virginia have gone up quite a bit since restrictions were eased and I am concerned about kids going back to school. 

There are news items that claim they don't spread it and are completely safe to attend school again.  I think that is probably fake news. 

Anyway, we are staying in quarantine until there is an effective vaccine. 

The actress Morgan Fairchild that bought three of my paintings said she was sure this spike would happen and she was certainly right.  Please wear a mask and stay away from people as much as possible.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde does not have to get up for work he is still getting up very early to check on wildlife around the area.  He sees a lot of amazing things and has learned not to talk to otters any more since they started to come after him that time he did call out to them. 

Since he does get up around 5:00 he usually takes a short nap after lunch.  Today he asked me if I needed to get into the bedroom before he closed the door. 

I can't think of anything I need to get in there for.

Thanks a lot. 

Ha ha.  Of course I always like to be near you, you boob!  Have a nice nap.

Well, as usual my crate took longer to make then expected so I couldn't paint today.  I will be taking Morning Color Dance to UPS this afternoon. I don't know if it is me or what but I tend to have problems when I schedule a pick up- many, many problems, so I take it on over myself. Unfortunately the closest UPS is in Dublin so I have a twenty minute drive but it is worth it not to have to straighten out the miscommunication. 

Don't misunderstand. UPS is great and I rely on them to mail my work. The oil pastel painting I recently sold to a Washington patron is a special one to me so I am leaving it up in this post too.  I am so glad it will have a great home! 
I
am still very scared of this awful virus and I am amazed that some people keep claiming the case spikes in many states are some sort of fake news.  Dr. Fauci did not have any problems with former administrations so I think he should still be listened to.  He is the expert, not the politicians.

Well, things certainly are looking up as another one of my medium sized Blue Ridge Parkway paintings was purchased by a great Washington patron!  It is so important to me to place my work where it will be appreciated. Morning Color Dance is my favorite Oil Pastel painting.

I used to argue with people that say artists are crazy.  Well, in my case I work like a maniac so if that is why people think I am crazy, then yes, I am nuts.  My latest one is taking quite a lot of time but I still have not gotten to the point where I just wish it were done.  I still want to work on it and it is coming along and the balancing act between the effect I am after and the effects that show up as I paint is working out well. 

I don't think I will be arm wrestling on this one, just a lot of work.  Looking forward to the next session.  I have too much to do tomorrow and Sunday so I will have to wait until Monday.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist  is Having a Rough Day

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Not my favorite day.  We all have them and this is a very bad one for me for personal reasons.  I didn't have time to paint when the light was good but that is not the reason I am so out of sorts.  I have to endure something that I don't really have to endure but the alternative is not something I want to do, so some days are very difficult.  Oh well. We are all having a bad time with this virus so I think I will just get to work and quit griping. 

I am pleased to sell another print of Rosy Evening at Isle of Palms, my most popular photograph to a great Oregon patron and the first sale of Black Swallowtail to a great India patron!   Time to count my blessings and be happy. 

Check out my latest Youtube on my channel which is Kendall Kessler. I decided to do some more Kendall Letters paintings.  I only have a few of them and the viewers seemed to really like this "A" so I think I will do a few more.  Hang in there everyone.  I think a vaccine is on the horizon.  Hope so!

I keep plugging along and try to keep from getting this virus.  I wish people would forego the beach this summer.  A huge spike in covid-19 in Florida says it all.

Anyway, I am pleased to be selling prints of popular works! Another print of A Break in the Clouds and Richmond on the James, and Smith Mountain Lake were sold this week. 

All three of these paintings have been sold in print form many times.  The original paintings, A Break in the Clouds and Richmond on the James have been sold.   Always great to get my work out there while I am working away on more. 

My latest painting is taking a very long time but it is coming along nicely.  Hope to finish it soon.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist  is Worried over the Increase in Covid-19 Cases...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler.
 
Well, I knew I would not get through with my latest painting without some art or arm wrestling but it wasn't a hair pulling time, just a few set backs and I am looking forward to tomorrow rather than wishing I just played the piano and never picked up a brush.  I love to paint but it can be difficult at times.  My husband gave me a great compliment on the progress so far and that helped a lot. 
Anyway, I am still so worried over this virus and hope and pray I don't get it from someone at the grocery store that refuses to wear a mask and doesn't know they are carrying it.  I am practically pole vaulting away from people.  I am amazed at  how some people think it is over when many states are reporting a great increase in cases.

I usually stay out of politics because it has been my experience that people do not want to calmly debate issues. They insist they are right and people they talk to should just agree with them.  Well, I am going to make an exception and  comment on the current administration.  Our president should not be having mass rallies during a pandemic.  He can have virtual ones.  I think he should take this pandemic more seriously and listen to medical experts regarding the duration of this catastrophe. 

There. I said it and I am entitled to my opinion.  No one has to agree with me and I will not get into an argument over this.  Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. 
As you can see I am getting into fall scenes right now.  My current painting is a fall painting of The Peaks of Otter lodge.

Still no art wrestling regarding the progress of my latest painting. I meant to say arm wrestling but art wrestling works good, too.  I have completed three major layers and will hopefully finish the final one next week.  Hope things keep on going smoothly. 

I think after I complete this large oil painting I will take care of some problem works that I have been meaning to get to and add them to my portfolio.  I am still slowly getting the studio better organized then it has ever been!  I have notes all over the place so I won't have to hunt things down.  Maybe I can even figure out how to get Aperture to correctly export the file size of some slides I still have not scanned. 

Anyway, I am very discouraged over a lot of people's response to the Pandemic. It is not over. We can't just get tired of it and act like there isn't a problem.  I see people without face masks.  If they think this is a hoax, why can't they wear one to put the rest of us that do not think it is a hoax at ease?  I think that would be common courtesy. 
I don't get into these arguments on Facebook but when I see a post that I think is important to share, I share it and ignore the negative comments.  I shared one with the recommendations of Dr. Fauci and one person said he was the virus.  Others said he doesn't know what he is talking about.  We need to respect those that have extensively studied disease. 

As a fourth grade teacher told me years ago.  Are we going to get any stupider?  I am beginning to wonder.  Check out my latest Youtube above!
Also be sure to watch the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven't seen it yet. I am going to include it for a long time. We still need to act like surgeons in an operating room.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, I am pleased that I am having no problem finding a very important staple in the grocery store - Russell Stover Pecan Delights.  LOL!  We both really do have a thing about good chocolate. 

Clyde likes dark chocolate more than milk chocolate. I can't stand dark chocolate.  I would rather shove a mint in my mouth. 

Anyway, I saw something real cute on Facebook about chocolate.  If you can't remember my name, say chocolate and I will turn around.  Oh yes!!!

I was so surprised to see that I hadn't shown my latest wildflower painting on Wordpress.  I was very pleased with the resulting work and am incorporating the somewhat different technique in my large Peaks of Otter Lodge painting.  It is coming along and I keep waiting for the arm wrestling session but I think that will happen in the next layer.
Hope it just goes along smoothly.  I know if we don't struggle we don't really progress but sometimes I still learn when there isn't a big struggle and I hope this painting is one of those.  

My Youtube demos are getting stronger but I am doing more of the work off camera than I was on many of the others.  I am sure to include a link to the final painting in the description. I hope people read those. 

I have been told that I practically include a book about myself with my descriptions but I want people to know that I am in no way a Sunday painter and hold an advanced  degree and have many credits to my name.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I don't watch a lot of TV but our gripes are getting louder and louder.  We constantly flick the channels to avoid commercials that seem to be getting longer and longer. I never thought I would do that but I just can't take it anymore.

The other day the commercial came on and Clyde didn't change the channel.  It was over so quick we couldn't believe it.

Did we fall asleep? 

I don't think so.

Did we enter another dimension where TV shows have more time than the commercials?

Don't think so. Just keep your trigger finger on the channel button.  That is probably the last time that will happen.

Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler
 


So pleased to sell another print of my most popular photograph Rosy Evening at Isle of Palms to a great Iowa patron!  I live to paint but I do have some photographs that I am proud of so I have included them in collections on my website.  I have included a link to a face mask of this photograph which I think would look great!

I am very excited to be working on a large painting that incorporates architecture!  I have always been fascinated by architecture and took many courses while obtaining my MFA degree.  One of my most popular architecture paintings is Rehoboth Beach Houses which is also one of my favorite paintings. 

Now I am working on a painting with the Peaks of Otter Lodge that includes the lake and surrounding trees in the Fall.   I am trying something a little different in my technical approach and keeping the second layer almost as thin as the first.

I think I can achieve more expression and color nuance with the large areas more modeled out in the beginning of the work. Anyway, it is always an exciting, sometimes exasperating experience and I am looking forward to the third layer where the arm wrestling will probably begin.

Cheers and be sure to watch the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven't seen it yet. I am going to include it for a long time.
Also, check out my latest youtube that includes paintings the actress Morgan Fairchild bought!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am still practicing Yoga every day and still complaining about it.  Don't misunderstand.  It does great things for the body and I will practice until I am no longer around but my mantra is still I hate Yoga, I hate Yoga, I hate Yoga. 

I wish I hadn't told Clyde that. I think he would benefit from practicing it, too.  I have an online zoom class with friends Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The other days I select 30 minute practices from Youtube. Just can't make myself practice an hour every day. 

The other day when Clyde walked by and heard the Youtube teacher say, "Lift your fingers high into the sky!". Clyde added but don't hit the light bulb on the way up. 

He said something a week ago that I thought was funnier but I am always mindful to keep my blog PG. 

Anyway, you can imagine what he said when he referred to several fingers being lifted high in the sky. LOL!

Kendall Kessler is Excited over Morgan Fairchild Painting purchases

Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler.
 

I am so pleased that the talented, award-winning beautiful actress Morgan Fairchild purchased three of my wildflower paintings! I am honored to have these paintings in her collection!  She also bought face masks, a tote bag, and a t-shirt with two of the paintings on them!

Among her many starring rolls on television are Search for Tomorrow, Dallas, Flamingo Road, Paper Dolls, and Falcon Crest. Morgan also takes a deep interest in foreign policy, politics, science & humor!

She is such a nice lady!  I have enjoyed talking to her.  The paintings are all below and, as always, wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
I don't have anything new from The Word Man so I thought I would leave up  what I consider to be a very important message for Christians.


I like to have something funny here but I saw something on Facebook that I thought was such a good definition of Christianity that I thought I would put that here. Clyde and I are Christians and we would like to go back to church but not if the congregation will be at risk for this awful virus. This bishop said it all!





From the Bishop-elect of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Missouri, Deon K. Johnson:
"The work of the church is essential.
The work of caring for the lonely, the marginalized, and the oppressed is essential.
The work of speaking truth to power and seeking justice is essential.
The work of being a loving, liberating, and life giving presence in the world is essential.
The work of welcoming the stranger, the refugee and the undocumented is essential.
The work of reconciliation and healing and caring is essential.
The church does not need to “open” because the church never “closed”. We who make up the Body of Christ, the church, love God and our neighbors and ourselves so much that we will stay away from our buildings until it is safe. We are the church."

I don't have much to say today.  I am glad that Virginia residents are complying with our governor's guidelines in phase one of the re-opening of our state.  Virginia beach people are following the guidelines which I don't think is the case in some of the other beaches in the US.  I have lived in Virginia my whole life and I am proud of people's response to the restrictions and very glad our governor is a doctor! 

I am so pleased with my latest wildflower painting!  It came together and it may not be perfect but it is close!  I learned something about the medium ,as always, and think I will apply what I learned to  a new mountainscape or some other kind of landscape. 

Don't know yet but I will soon! Got to paint!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Very Pleased with Latest Wildflower painting and Porched...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kewssler
 
Wow, no rain today! The New river rose almost as high as a seven foot sign at the Dog Park!  It has never been that high before.  What a flood! 
It is great to see the sunshine today and my guys were able to take walks.  I will get out, too. 

I could not be more pleased with my latest wildflower painting!  I know I have said this before but it bears repeating.  As I told my students when they were discouraged, you will never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you can get close.  It would be boring if an artist did not have something to work towards. 

Well, this one is so close!  I will be fine tuning it but it really is what I wanted and, as usual, I am not certain how I got there but I balanced between control and accident, and they came together beautifully! 

I will have it in my portfolio soon.  Please check out my videos above and the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven't seen them and have a great day! Also, I have included a face mask link for Yin Yang Flow. What a wild face mask that would be!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned many times, Clyde incessantly studies wildlife with an emphasis on birds.  Due to the torrential rain we had for days he couldn't get out to the New River or the creeks for days.

Then he couldn't even check out the bird populations in the back yard so he studied what he could from the carport. 

I had to tease him. 

I never thought I would see the day that you are porched.  Rain doesn't stop you but seven feet high floods from the New River has benched you big time. 

Yeah.  I am a dedicated naturalist but I am not about to drown for my studies.

Right. That is taking it too far.

Today he had a break but it is clouding up big time once again.

Not my favorite day but they are all good in some ways.  Didn't get to paint this morning and now the light is not right and I have been having a very hard time with a huge blood blister on the under side of my tongue that started on  Saturday. It popped the next day but has been so sore I have had a hard time talking and eating.  I finally gave in today and took some advil.

I don't like to take medication of any kind but if I have a hard time eating, then I am very unhappy.  I eat something every few hours.  I have first and second breakfast just like a hobbit so strong pain when eating had to go!

Anyway I am having a great time with another wildflower painting and looking forward to working on it tomorrow.  It took a bad turn yesterday but now it is back on track. I'll bet that makes a lot of sense.  To think there are some people that don't think artists are crazy.  LOL!

Clyde made a very interesting purchase that reminded me of a joke I saw on Facebook.

Well Clyde bought the cover of his book I illustrated on a face mask.  Now what will that go with?

I am really getting into wildflowers right now and looking forward to tomorrow when I can get to the second stage of my latest one!  The one in the video is of wildflowers in beautiful Wildwood Park, Radford, Va. 

My latest one is not a specific place, it is based on wildflower fields I have seen with my own improvisation.  I truly understand what Edward Hopper said one time, "I am best when I improvise."  Artists build up so many images in their minds and it is great when they come out on canvas. 

Sometimes I like to stick closely to what I see and other times I like to elaborate on what I see and sometimes there are no recognizable shapes - music without words. 

Anyway, lots of computer work to do so I better get busy.  Again, I have included an addres to  a painting on face masks!

Cheers and stay safe!

Clyde is on our church council and they are having Zoom meetings online about possibly having services again.  People will be required to wear masks and maintain a safe distance. 
It is a small congregation so that should not be a problem. Clyde told me about their thoughts on the matter after the meeting was over.

Well, I guess we can't have coffee and snacks after the service.

Uh oh. That's the end of the church. 

Ha ha.  I think we can manage a service without coffee afterwards.

What a beautiful Mother's Day!  My son bought me a box of candy.  Gee, I wonder how he thought of that for a present? Could it be that I always have a bag of Russel Stovers pecan delights on the top of my fridge?  Or could it be I am never out of fun size peanut M & M's? 

He probably noticed over the years that I sort of have a sweet tooth. What an understatement! I will never forget one time when he was a toddler and I sat down for a second to inhale a fun size snickers bar.  He stood right in front of  me and proudly grabbed the paper and put in the trash can. 

Anyway,  I hope all the mothers out there have a great day! The sun is shining here.  I am selling some face masks so I have again included an address for Winding Magenta.

Well, Clyde gave me the perfect gift!  We have been worried about the lack of toilet paper since we are getting to our last rolls. 

Then he remembered that this great small store and fast food restaurant nearby had single rolls in the past available. 

He brought home a bag of stuff and then said he bought me a great gift.

I looked in the bag and saw a roll of toilet paper! 

Wow!  You are the greatest husband ever!

What a dramatic change in weather!  So glad I was able to get the groceries before it starts raining.  Winter weather tonight!  Yikes!  I will be glad to see some warm weather soon.  I can't go to the beach but it will be nice to get out and walk with Clyde in the park. 

I am real pleased to sell a number of prints to a great California patron!  This time two face masks, a t-shirt, and a tote bag was purchased! The patron that purchased these items recently purchased Wildwood Beauty.  Great to sell an original and household prints to the same patron!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We are having an awful time with our T.V. We have to use two remotes.  One to turn it on and off and one to change channels. The provider that I switched to required an update box with new remotes and ever since then we have had trouble. 

The remote for the T.V. in the living room is the one that is supposed to be used but it became very hard to change channels so we got one from another T.V. and it changes channels but does not turn it off and on. 

I told Clyde I thought this T.V. was made in a laboratory in China. 

Yes, and it escaped to torture us.

LOL!

Such a beautiful day!  Lots of people outside having some fun.  We took a great walk and plugged carpenter bee holes in our roof.  The bees flew around and I don't think I would like to hear what they had to say if they could talk. 

They look just like bumblebees but they don't sting, just cuss out people that mess up their homes.  They prefer to make these hole homes in dead wood, so, of course, they like our roof over the trees.  I guess they are just going to have to get used to homes with a little sap here and there. 

So much to do on the internet.  I had better get busy.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

My mother passed away over a year ago and I miss her very much.  She and I had a lot in common.  There were certain things she did that I didn't think I would do but I think I am turning into my Mom.  I have heard that happens a lot.

She froze everything and I have started doing that.  I make desserts that Clyde can't eat and I don't want them to spoil before I finish them so I freeze half. 
My Dad thought Mom over did the freezer thing.  He would often say if he was ever missing, look in the freezer.   Ha ha. 

I told Clyde I thought I was turning into Mom. 

Don't buy a big freezer. 

That's probably a good idea.  LOL!

I wanted to paint today but the day got away from me as I have been working on Youtube stuff.  My channel is growing and I am seeing a lot of interesting videos by friends and friends to be!  Some Youtubers add great music. 
I used to do that but now that I am filming Demos I think the music would be too distracting. One friend had the greatest Jazz up today!  I always like to listen to Jazz, such an amazing kind of music. 
Anyway,  I will get to paint tomorrow and the studio clean-up is going slowly but I will get that done.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, I have been such a workalohic lately that I have caused a hemorrhage in my right eye.  No serious problem, just an eye that looks like someone punched me out.  I am spending too much time on the computer presenting my artwork and I think the hemorrhage was from eye strain. 

Much to my surprise, people can get this eye problem from laughing.  I certainly do a lot of that but I think eye strain or too much yoga caused this. I did a Youtube Yoga session yesterday that would have brought Godzilla down.  That crazy teacher went from Downward Facing Dog to a Hand Stand!  She did, I didn't.

Clyde says the computer is my boss. 

It is not. It is just a machine. 

How do you know?  Maybe it goes out for donuts in the middle of the night so it can have more energy to torture you. 

Do you think we are living in the Matrix? 

You never know. 

Ha ha.

Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler
 


I have been spending so much time working on my Youtube channel that I have stopped listening to great Youtube music.  Decided today to get back to that and right now I am listening to an orchestra featuring violinist David Garrett performing a favorite Tchaikovsky Allegro Moderato opus 35.  I love all kinds of music just like I like all kinds of art but my favorite music is Classical music, especially music from the Romantic Era. 

I am pleased that I finished another Youtube today and will upload it on Monday.  I told my husband I missed swimming and thought I would go do some laps at The Aquatic Center.  NOT!!!!!  Wish I could but I think it will be quite some time before they re-open.

I think I will just dream about Pawleys Island and look forward to going there again next year.  Be sure to check out the Safe Grocery Shopping video below and have a great day! 
Also, face masks are available on my website and I have included an address under Pawleys Island Evening.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Like a lot of people right now I am taking Yoga class through Zoom classes and some Youtube classes.  Some of those teachers require enough Downward Facing Dogs to make me bark and yelp but I am getting used to it. 

The other day I couldn't find my strap but my Zoom teacher doesn't usually use one.  Of course, we needed one that day so I stretched apart my sweater. Hope I didn't ruin it. 

So after class I went to the spot by my piano where I keep it and complained to Clyde that it was not there. 

Maybe it slithered under the piano. 

It can't do that. 

How do you know? 

Because it is a lifeless instrument of torture not a live one. 

Well, I finally found it on the bed in the computer room under Clyde's coat.  I guess it slithered under there.  LOL!

Clyde and I don't really like using our cell phones that much. We prefer to communicate on the computer or in person.  In person! What's that?  Right now it certainly doesn't exist but we will get back to that soon, I hope. 

We both see lots of people typing away on phones with their thumbs.  That isn't for me. I don't like working with that tiny screen.
Clyde says they are going to get carpal tunnel of just the thumb! Yikes! I'll bet that is next!

Well, I never thought I would live to see the day that I am selling prints of my paintings on face masks!  I have sold my prints on a lot of household items and clothes but now my work is on face masks. 
I have included the address to my most popular wildflower painting, Natural Rhythm on a mask below.  They are $13.50.

Anyway, I am very pleased with the first stage of my latest wildflower painting.  I am taking a different approach to this one and I will just see what happens.  So far it has a nice swaying motion that I like very much. 

I may upload a first stage of it and I may not.  Sometimes I do that but this one has a lot of work to do and I don't know if I want prints of the first layer available.  Oh well! The studio is getting cleaned up and organized at the same time!  Now that is a first!

This virus is devastating. There was only one small bag of one of our staples, Russell Stover pecan delights at Kroger! We will have to ration them. Also, for two weeks I have had to eat organic regular spaghetti instead of Angel Hair!

What next? Big time LOL!!! I don't mean to make light of this very serious situation and I do feel for all the people that are experiencing horrible hardships but I love to laugh. Always good to joke around in these difficult times.

Poor Clyde is noodleless right now. Our order for the kind he can eat still hasn't arrived. Usually that company gets stuff to us faster than greased lightening.  He may be in for another spaghetti on potatoes night.  He did like that but spaghetti without noodles is just meat sauce. 

I think we will survive!

I was so pleased to see one minister's great solution to holding services with his congregation!  He got on the roof of the church and the parishioners were in their cars!  What a smart guy!  I wish all congregations that were determined to meet together would follow his example.

We need to keep our distance right now. Also, nothing wrong with online services.  I have been playing the piano at our church for years and will be happy to play again but it is nice to have a break. There are over 800 hymns and I certainly don't know them all.

As I have mentioned before, Clyde has a weird disease that prevents him from eating a lot of foods in all food groups except meat.  He was in the habit of picking up a number of items at a specialty store but stopped that when this awful virus took over.

One of the things he can't eat is flour so we get special kinds of noodles for spaghetti.  We ran out yesterday and he asked for potatoes as a side dish substitute.  Our order in the mail still hasn't arrived. 

When dinner was ready I had to tease him a little. 

Okay, man without a noodle, dinner is served. 

Are you saying I am a man without a noodle that is going to eat the whole kitten kaboodle? 

Right. Why did I marry a writer? Enjoy your potato spaghetti!

My studio is finally getting cleaned up.  Now that I am not getting out very much, the mess in this house and studio is staring me right in the face and I don't have an excuse to ignore it. I am able to get  to my painting, music, and computer chores and still have time to clean up. 

I don't know how many layers of dust have accumulated  but those layers are bothering me now. 

You would think someone that is allergic to dust and mold would take better care of a house.  Well, when I only have time to paint or clean, guess which activity wins out?  I don't like this quarantine any better than anyone else, but it does have this one advantage. 

Where is that duster?  I keep misplacing it. Time to get back to it.  Yuck!  Be sure to view my latest wildflower painting.

As always, Clyde gets up very early to check out wildlife around Radford.  I doubt there are many people that do that on a regular basis or at all.  He is quite the dedicated naturalist. 

You get up at the creak of dawn! 

Yes, and I creak around and then creak right on out of here. 

Just remember, don't talk to the otters. Remember the time you did that and they started to come after you.  You must have said something nasty about their mother in otter talk.

Got it.  No otter talk.  I will return.

I asked Clyde.  Carp the dime? 

Carpe dodo? 

No, Carpe Diem! That's it.  Well, I better, Carp the dime, Carpe dodo or Carpe Diem this Tuesday before it shoots right into Wednesday! Stay safe everyone!

I don't think I have ever wanted to be at the beach more than I do right now! I'm sure I am not the only one.  We were not planning on going this year due to some obligations we have to attend to but now that this virus is making it impossible for people to be at the beach, I want to be there more than ever!  I want to walk along the shore and stare at the beautiful breakers and wildlife. 
I hope the pandemic will be over by July and people
can get back to typical summer activities.  I will certainly be at Claytor Lake when it is safe to swim again.

I told Clyde this pandemic is causing me to retreat to a more primitive state.  I just ate a Russells Stover pecan delight and DID NOT BRUSH MY TEETH!  I am obsessive about cleaning my teeth so this is quite a step backwards!

I used to tease my mother about how careful she was with teeth cleaning.  Our family dentist always told me that her teeth were the cleanest teeth he ever saw.  Well, I think I may be more careful than her now but this pandemic is really disrupting my life. 

Who knows what's next?  LOL!

I was not happy to hear about how long we need to quarantine ourselves but I know we have to do this.  This virus is horrible.  I have plenty to do but I would like to get out of the house to go to a few stores. 

I really need to get some new shoes and I know I won't have online luck with that.  Sometimes a 9 fits and sometimes a 9.5 fits.  Shoes are weird.  Also, I would like to go to Walmart just to look around.  I am not much for shopping but right now I could get into it. 

Well, can't complain that much.  Our favorite Chinese restaurant is open!  We will take the doctor's advice and re-heat everything.  I was glad to come across this below video on how to handle things we have to buy. 

We all need to behave like surgeons in an operating room. 

I am very pleased to sell three prints of Blue Ridge beauty to a great Pembroke patron!  It is so great to see my artwork getting out to people!  That always makes me happy! The three paintings are below.

Beautiful day.  I am seeing more and more signs of life outside. I am still sanitizing every thing that can be sanitized.  People are being great about keeping their distance. My husband is in the back checking out bird populations which is something he lives for.  I, of course, paint and play my piano. 

I finally understand how to work my new recording gizmo and will soon have a Youtube of my shore work with my own piano music.  I wrote a piece a while back and had it copyrighted.  Youtube has some nice music but I want to add my own like I did when I first started uploading to my channel. 

Now, I have better recording equipment so I am looking forward to some great videos!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are both amazed at certain groups of people that refuse to participate in social distancing during this crisis.  When I went to Kroger today a store clerk asked me if I wanted to have my shopping cart sanitized.  I said yes and thank you!  She said she has to ask first because some customers don't want their cart sanitized. They think the Covad-19 is a hoax. 

Also, there are reports of pastors that are still holding church services.  Why can't they hold their services over the internet? 

Clyde said if he dies as the result of people that refuse to take precautions he is going to come back as a ghost and haunt them.  Shoelaces are going to be untied and tied over and over again.  Phone chargers will be unplugged.  Plates of food will mysteriously fall to the floor face down.  Look out!  The Word and Bird Man will get you if you don't do your best to keep from getting this disease and spreading it to others! 

LOL!  Important to laugh at a time like this.  Stay safe everyone!

Well, my naturalist husband is still getting out.  He is being careful to steer clear of other people but he is getting out.  I am just going to the grocery store when needed but when it gets a little warmer I will take a walk in beautiful Wildwood Park. 

We are very fortunate in that we have what we need and are just staying inside.  Like my favorite Virus joke says, For the first time in human history we can save the world's people by lying on the floor and watching T.V.  Let' not screw this up. 

I am certainly doing my part but I am not on the floor for TV.  I reserve that space for Yoga.  My great teacher is sending us sessions on the computer which works just fine!  I can't seem to find ones that I like so far on youtube.  I either find ones that aren't much more than sleeping on the floor or I find ones that have so many Downward Facing Dogs that I almost start barking. My teacher always has great sessions and I am sure she can use the money so most of my yoga stuff is with her. 

Be sure to check out my latest Dallas Texas skyline painting Demo Youtube above and stay safe!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I were trying to order hand sanitizer online.  Actually I was trying to order it and had a hard time deciding what kind to get so I got Clyde online to do it. 

There were so many selections and Clyde asked me which ones I want. 

I don't know.  I am not good at making decisions.  I married you. 

Ha ha. 

Now you know I am just kidding. 

Well, all online hand sanitizers are sold out so it doesn't matter which one to select.  There aren't any.  

Well, we may not be able to get any hand sanitizer but I still have you! 

My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

I think I better get back to the studio before I get into any more trouble.

LOL!

I wish we were at an open beach right now, virus free.

Not getting out much but I did want to buy a new thermometer.  Of course, our digital one decided to retire and I went to two Drug stores and surprise, surprise!  They were all out.  On well,  we seem to be okay and if I have to go to the store I wear gloves that get drowned in boiling water when I get home.  

This is awful but we can't complain that much.  We aren't hurting for anything except a thermometer that works and I always have more than enough to do all the time. 

I am so pleased that people continue to look at my work and buy originals and prints.  A great Kansas patron bought three prints of one of my most vibrant florals, Sunflower Burst!  This time the prints are on carry-all pouches.

It is fun to think of all the items that have been bought with my artwork on them!  Most of my sales are originals and wall art prints but prints on just about anything can be purchased. 
I am very excited about starting a small wildflower painting tomorrow!  I always enjoy painting wildflowers!

Clyde doesn't have a Facebook personal account and doesn't visit the site but I do, so I like to tell him about the jokes that I see on it.  There is a lot of great humor there! 

Recently someone posted that since we have learned to wash our hands now we can go on to colors and shapes! 

Clyde said he could hold up a pillow and say one, then hold up an identical pillow and say two, and so on. 

Maybe we do need to get back to that great informative book, "All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten". 

I should probably brush up on that book myself. LOL!

Well, I am not going stir crazy yet but I am not getting out much.  I am worried about the virus and have been washing my hands all the time now.  I have to go grocery shopping but I figured out a way to do that with minimal contamination. 

I try to keep my distance from other shoppers as much as possible and I wear gloves.  I sanitize my hands before I put the gloves on.  Then when I get home I take them off and sanitize my hands again so I can pick the gloves up and put them in the wash.  I hope that helps. 

We don't have a reported case here but I have heard we don't have the testing kits so there may be cases that are not documented. I never thought I would see the day that the whole world is quarantined. 

Anyway, I have a new video up on my latest Dallas Skyline Painting.  It is very short because the demo tape I made didn't work out.  I was just about done when the camera messed up so I made a short video of the painting and my latest Blue Ridge painting. 

Looking forward to a new oil painting as I continue to paint acrylic skylines and other abstracts.

I am very pleased to sell a large metal print of Tall Blue Vase to a great Texas patron!

Clyde and I love Russel Stover pecan sandies.  We consider them to be a staple and I hate it when we run out. Kroger used to have big bags of them but now they just have small boxes. 

I was so surprised to see them on sale for $1.50 so I bought one hoping they were not stale.  I figured they would be good but Clyde said watch out for dinosaur bones.

Okay, I know exaggeration is one of the key components of humor but dinosaur bones in candy?  I think that is a bit much. LOL!

Well, I couldn't miss Line Dance Class today so when I arrived I put sanitizer on my hands.  Then I put gloves on and kept them on during the whole class.  I stood six feet away from each dancer. 

When I got in my car to leave I took the sanitizer out again, took off my gloves and put that stuff on again. 
When I got home I put the gloves in the wash.  I hope that did it.  I don't want to stop living to keep from dying but the Rec Center where the classes are held may shut down.  I think most everyone else is smarter than me regarding this pandemic. 

On well.  I have the CDS from our performances and it doesn't take much room to dance away.  Now the question is whether or not I go to Yoga class tomorrow.  Anyway, I finished my latest Blue Ridge painting of a Wintergreen Sunset. Please check it out!

Clyde told me a long time ago that when retired he would get some sophisticated equipment to record bird songs.  Now he says he probably won't do that. 

Why? 

My hearing is not what it used to be.  A lot of Bird Watchers our age can't hear certain bird songs. I can't even hear a Golden Crowned Kinglet. 

Or me asking you to do the dishes.  Just joking. Clyde is great about taking turns washing the dishes and I hope he does get that equipment. 

To quote the very fun movie Galaxy Quest.  Never give up! Never surrender!

Argh, argh and argh again!  I am so tired of being run over by technology.  Now my phone is acting up and it is a new one.  I always get help from my husband when I have to contact the provider for help.  If I don't I may start heaving things around the room in total exasperation. 

What really aggravates me is we spend fifty minutes trying to get help and have to just say bye on the chat.  It always goes this way.  I explain the problem and am given a solution which does not the apply to the problem. Then the agent goes through a bunch of other solutions that don't work and then just repeats the first solution. 

That is when I want to start chucking things.  Oh well, I figured a way around the problem and will just go with it.  I don't want another fifty minute useless chat.  We could call but then we can't understand the representative because of the thick accent.

I may have to appear in court for the first time and I have been thinking of all the things that people can't say on the stand. Hey, I have seen lots and of lots of Judge Judy! 

One word keeps coming to mind that we have all heard.  Hearsay.  I think of all the things I could say which would be labeled hearsay. 

Then I thought of some other things I shouldn't say and decided I had come up with a new legal word!  I had to tell Clyde.  He hadn't heard it before. 

There is Hearsay and then there is Stupidsay.  I better avoid both of them if at all possible!

Well, once again I decided on a different direction with a painting that was fighting me and then all of a sudden it started talking to me and cried uncle.  I finally resolved the problems I was having with the spacing and atmospheric effect.  As usual, I sort of know how I got to that point but not really. 

Painting is always an adventure unless the painter follows formulaic devices.  I would quit rather than take that approach.  Anyway, there is something different about the surface quality that I am very pleased with and will probably quit soon before I over work it. 

Any of this make sense to you?  It would if you had a paint brush strapped to you like me.  You have to really love art to put up with all the problems but it is so great when they get out into the world.  As I always say,  I can't take them with me. 

Cheers on a Monday!  Check out my Monday youtube!  I decided to paint one more on a paper towel. Fun experience!

Yesterday we were watching a cute little girl on TV holding a skunk.  She claimed she would not be sprayed since she was not a threat to the skunk.  I had a hard time believing that and figured the glands had been removed which I know can be done.  Anyway, she gave the figures for the skunk population in the US and the skunk made me think of Congress. 

I'll bet those numbers don't include the skunks in Congress. 

Clyde said some of those skunks would scare a skunk sprayless. 

Right. 

Just kidding. I'm sure there are some hard working members of Congress but I'll bet it does stink at times in there.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Unhappy about Wintergreen painting and Did he Leave a Bill...

Well,  my latest painting took a nose dive off a Blue Ridge cliff.  After all I wrote about how well it was going it decided to turn into an arm wrestling painting.  Oh well.  This happens and when it does I always repeat the following.  
Paintings will drive you crazy if you let them.  Don't let them drive you crazy.  I never do. At least I think I am sane.

I have been to this point before and scrap the approach I was using, try something else and usually it turns out great and I have no idea how I got to the end. 

I know that sounds strange but it is not strange to another painter.  They know what I am talking about unless they have a formula they follow with every painting which would be so boring to me that I would quit painting.  I have known a few painters that do that, but not many. 

Most painters sort of know what they are doing but not really and every painting is a learning experience. 

I will get in there tomorrow and fight the colorful fight.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde and I share the dishes 50-50 I like to tease him sometimes.  Yesterday the kitchen looked so good after he finished that I asked him if he had help. 

Oh yeah.  Some guy came in here and did them for me.

Did he leave a bill?  No, he just did the dishes and walked out.

I wish he would do that for me.  I am going to have to include this in my blog. 

Argh!!  I am going to just stop talking. 

Now you know you will never do that.  You told me once the name Clyde means heard from afar and you are right here with all your pearls of wisdom.

And again, arghhhh!!!!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Excited about Wintergreen painting and A Pet Rock is Happier...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Sometimes a painting experience is over the top! My latest Blue Ridge painting looked so good in the second stage that I was worried I would lose the strong effect in the next phase.  Was I ever wrong!  I am achieving the most complex painting that I have ever done and I will be shoving any impediment to work to get to it tomorrow.

I don't think extreme attention to detail necessarily makes for a successful painting.  There will always be so much more to painting than trying to represent what I see that can't really be represented due to the constant change of light and shade throughout the day. That is why I work from a photograph that I took of a specific moment that I want to embellish.

I put myself into the work with decisions about color and texture that are sometimes in the photograph and sometimes my reaction to the paint as it is applied to the surface. 

Anyway, back to detail.  I do like to get as much detail as possible in these atmospheric landscapes because of the beautiful colors that occur as I work on tricky areas.  It is not really about the detail. It is about the color and I am getting more color than ever before! 

Looking forward to tomorrow's session.

I doubt that everyone remembers the Pet Rock Craze from the seventies.  The guy that came up with this crazy pet idea walked away with 15 million for it.  The rocks came in boxes with air holes.  Anyway, it was quite an amazing marketing trend that didn't last long.

Well the other day I was going back to work on all my computer chores and Clyde said have fun. 

I jokingly said I have a lot of fun working on the computer but I'm not sure the computer is happy about it. 

I have seen pet rocks have more fun than computers. 

I'm sure if a computer could talk it would agree!

I had a lot of success with my new painting of a Wintergreen sunset yesterday and decided I should put it in my Stages of my Artwork collection.  I am intending to completely cover it with another layer that will look very much like it does now but with even more complicated systems of color and texture. 

I have learned so much about the technique that is the best approach for my expressions but I keep changing with every painting and there is something quite different about the color interaction in the mountains this time. 

I have always found that constant flucuation of warm and cool colors in the Blue Ridge ranges to be especially difficult so I am very excited that it is working out better than ever this time and I don't want to lose what I have right now so the file will be preserved.  Looking forward to the next session!

Now that Clyde has retired from Tech he is great about helping me with the housework.  He is also trying to straighten up his mountains of research in our computer room that actually has a bed for a guest but can't be used without an overhaul of all the stuff that is on it and under it.  Oh well, he keeps at it. 
Anyway, we share the dishes. We take turns doing the lunch and supper detail.  On Sunday we eat out.  Last Sunday I decided to do the lunch dishes which includes dishes from breakfast and snacks.  We are probably the biggest snackers on the planet. 

I told him I would do the lunch dishes and he would do the supper dishes and, as God is my witness, there will be supper dishes.  It doesn't matter whether or not we cook, they still breed like rabbits.

Well, as usual I am wondering what happened to Monday.  Someone shot another day out of a cannon.  I was very glad to get back to work on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and it is still coming along.  I had an art wrestling time with it last week but I think I am over that and looking forward to what will probably be the last layer. 

I can see why experts like to x-ray paintings.  All my layers are intricate systems of brushwork and come completely together at the end.  I didn't take photos of different stages this time.  I like to do that but it slipped my mind.  So far, I don't think I am losing very successful parts. 

It has not been one of those paintings that are a terrific struggle.  This one has been like a nice  ride down the river with just a  few bumps.  The tough ones keep me on my toes but it is nice to have one that does not fight with me that much.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
I love comedy!  The other day I was watching a great stand up comedian on a show I don't usually watch and he was cracking me up. 

The last thing he said was he saw a woman with pants that had the word yoga on them.  His comment was the pants may say yoga but the woman in them  says McDonalds. 

I mentioned that to Clyde and said I had seen a lot of girls in yoga pants that say McDonalds but I don't think I am one of them. 

I agree. 

You are a smart husband that wants to stay alive. 

That's right.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please Check out my latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler
I am finally to my blog after a lot of work!  I am so glad to sell another original painting to a great Virginia patron!  Secluded Home which is pictured below is a personal favorite and I am glad it will have a good home.  This one has such a nice atmosphere and intense brushwork. As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available by clicking the link below the painting!

Now I have to build a crate which is always a lot more work then you think it would be.  Shipping artwork is tricky.  The painting has to be double boxed and immobilized. I have to cut out the cardboard for the two boxes and put them together.  I have so many different sizes of paintings that I can't order boxes. They don't make the kind of box I need.  It is so easy to damage artwork and I take every precaution to prevent that from happening. 

Since I am so busy right now I have decided to upload a short video on Monday about this sale and show some other works in my studio instead of a Painting Demo.  Those videos take quite a lot of time even though they are not very long.  I do a lot of prep regarding what I will paint and how it will be presented as I try to have a pleasant conversation at the same time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I know I have mentioned before that I don't like all this computerization of our lives but it is great that  I can reach patrons on the internet.

Still, like I said before if they ever computerize the bathroom I will need an out house.

Clyde did that one better. He said if bathrooms are computerized he is afraid someone will hack his toilet.  It might even leave without him. 

Yikes!

Tiring Monday but I am sure I am not the only one saying that.  The phone is ringing all day long with scammers ready for another week of bugging me.  I do not answer my phone unless I know who is calling.  Those robo calls are really working my phone.  I don't want to just have a cell phone for a number of reasons but that land line sure is a pain! 

I am so pleased to finally getting some work done on another Blue Ridge painting!  It is coming along and I think if I had to say which sort of painting I like to do best it would be The Blue Ridge and surrounding ridges in oil paint.  This one is an intense sunset at Wintergreen.  The patterns of light and shade on the ridges and a few houses is startling and I will be pleased to get into the studio each day to work on it. 

I would rather work with a combination of my daylight flourescent lights and some natural sunlight coming through the window but the weatherman is calling for rain for a while.  Oh well,  I can't wait for the light I like to get to work and all my paintings are done in a series of layers so maybe the next layer will be to better lighting.

It certainly has been cloudy lately.  I don't mind overcast weather but I would like to see the sun soon.  It always amazes me that when I have a patron coming over for a studio visit it is almost always cloudy.  We have an active solar house and it is a dark house on one side and bright on the other. 
A lot of my artwork is on display in the dark side of the house, not just the studio.   I turn on a lot of lights but the natural light coming in through the windows looks the best.

Anyway, I have finally started my Wintergreen sunset painting!  It is great to back to oil paint but I think I will be ordering some very expensive colors soon.  It would be great if professional oil paint was the same price as house paint. 

I knew an artist that painted very large works and he would use house paint.  I can understand that!  The colors are way too flat for me and I want my work to last forever so I use Gamblin and Utrect. 

I mostly use the more expensive brand which is Gamblin but I don't like Gamblin Cerulean Blue so I order that color from Utrecht.  I also don't use earth colors which are less expensive.  I have a colorist palette so I order expensive blues, greens, yellows, reds, and purples.  I can get any kind of earth color from those colors and I think the effect is more vibrant. 

Right now, Cadmium Red is $66 for a large tube.  I always buy large tubes. The small ones don't last long at all. 

Okay. Enough shop talk! Time to paint.  I hope everyone has a great day!

Clyde and I are having more trouble finding things than usual.  I usually get very aggravated and start cussing like a sailor.  Clyde just keeps trying to find whatever it is we can't locate. 

Anyway I told Clyde the first nine chapters of The Marriage book are "Where is it?" 

Chapter 10 is "I don't know".

I am pleased that I managed another Skyline Beauty painting of Austin Texas!  Now I will have five for an Etsy listing.  This time I decided to use soft pastel colors.  I am getting a lot of compliments on my expressive skylines so I thought it would be a nice change of pace to use a different palette.  I am very pleased with the results. 

My first medium was soft pastels and I know how to mimic that look with paint. Be sure to check it out! 

I am looking forward to seeing the patron that commissioned me to restore some glass paintings.  He is also considering a lake commission and will be purchasing The Lodge at The Peaks of Otter.  He has a print but he wants to get the original and give the print to a friend.

Life with the Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, I got my new phone.  I stared at that box for a few days and then was notified I should set it up.  I can't believe how much trouble I have with this sort of thing.  The last time the operator had to admit something was actually wrong with the phone and we had to send it back and get another one. 

I told Clyde if you hear me crying it is because I finally opened the box.  He said if I hear you laughing I will know you chucked it out the window.  As it turned out we spent an hour and a half trying to get it set up with an operator. 

After forty five minutes he assured me the minutes had been transferred to my new phone.  I tried to make a call and was informed by the phone there would be charges.  So we started over with another operator, this time on a chat.  Finally I can use the phone. 

Now I just need help getting all the stuff from my old phone transferred to the new one.  We will call a friend that is much younger than us to help.  He is not from India.  We can easily understand him.  Yikes!

I am so pleased to be finished with the second glass painting restoration!  Had some trouble with certain colors resisting but after many layers it is completely covered and I will send a file to the patron. 

He has one more so I am looking forward to seeing him and giving him the first two.  He said the first one looked wonderful! 
They certainly are interesting paintings.

Clyde is always complaining about traffic.  For some reason a lot of dangerous drivers seem to find him a lot more than they find me. 

Well, yesterday I had an interesting experience I had to tell him about.  I was driving along when I noticed in the mirror a driver weaving back and forth which made me nervous.  When the driver was practically touching my bumper I could see it was a girl that kept looking at herself in the mirror and then looking down to the seat. 

I am pretty sure I have mentioned before that my brother-in-law always gets off the road if someone is barreling down on him.  He says he had better get out of the way. That guy must be on a mission for God. 

Well, I don't usually get out of the way but I did turn off and let that girl pass because I think she must have been on a mission for Revlon. 

Clyde agreed.

I am just about finished with the second painting commission and it is turning out really well!  As I said, these are paintings on glass so the process has been quite different from my usual work.  I always paint in layers but  colors do not  resist on the canvas the way some are resisting on the glass. 

I painted on metal one time and had the same problem but eventually was able to completely cover the surface with many layers of tempera paint.  These glass paintings are enamel acrylic which is the best paint to use on glass. 

The original paintings that lost of lot of the paint had to be done in oils since acrylics only date back to the fifties.

Still working away on too many things at the same time.  I am pleased that I am able to juggle a lot of balls at the same time.  Never could really do that.  I am really impressed with people that can juggle.  I do juggle a lot of jobs which is not always easy but I am never bored.

Anyway, I am pleased to sell another framed print of my most popular beach painting, Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great Pawleys Island patron!  That is certainly a fitting place for it to be!

I know it may seem strange that I use that painting as my blog header since it is not a Blue Ridge painting.  Even though I have lived my adult life in the Ridge and Valley mountains which are right next to the Blue Ridge I paint a lot of other settings and my favorite place is the shore.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Today Clyde and I bumped into each other in the hall way.  Neither one of us said anything. 

This thought came to mind which is like the quote from the popular 70's movie Love Story!

Love means never having to say you are sorry when you bump into each other in the hall way. 

I later mentioned that to Clyde and all I got was an argh!  

So much for that quote!  LOL!

Well, I have done some unusual commissions but my latest is definitely a new experience for me that is turning out very well!  A great patron that owns a number of my prints and one commission asked me to restore some paintings done on glass that were made over 100 years ago! 

A lot of the paint had come off and when I attempted to paint from the back the way the artist did, the damaged first layer still showed, so I either had to scrape off all of the paint or paint on the front and completely cover all layers. 

The patron didn't have a problem with painting the front.  I think it turned out great and the patron said it looks wonderful so now on to the second one!  The finished painting on glass is below.  It will be placed back into a gorgeous, molded frame.

He slowly looked behind  on his right and then slowly looked behind on his left. 

You, you boob!  I am talking about you!

I am so pleased I finished another Youtube Demo today!  I am trying to get more attention on Youtube and more followers.  I think this one turned out real well!  I always take an experimental approach with Youtubes and I was going to paint more of an abstract one but ended up with my main style. 

I am getting lots of great comments on them and another Youtuber is going to feature information about my work on one of his Youtubes!  Always great to get that kind of compliment! 

I am also pleased with the progress on my latest commission.  I was having a little trouble with it but now I think it is all clear sailing! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  One of these days I might notice the difference between week days and weekends but I doubt it. 

I need to get back to work.

Not my favorite day. Lots of aggravation. Trying to get things done but I feel like I am on a treadmill.  Lots of motion, just not getting anywhere. 

I think it was The Father of the Bride starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor that featured a dream sequence with Tracy trying to get down the aisle at the church and there were so many obstacles he couldn't get there.  I think some days are like that. 

Oh well.  Let's see what I can get done before I let out a scream like Elizabeth Taylor did in that film. LOL!

Well, the painting demo for my latest Youtube that I uploaded today sure took quite a u-turn!  I changed it so much that I decided to upload the demo and the final painting in my Stages of my Artwork collection on my website. 

The idea I had in my mind when I filmed the demo just didn't go the way I had planned so I stopped at a point that I thought had a finished look and then went back into the whole painting off camera. 

My Skyline Paintings are always highly experimental so I never know where they are going to take me.

Such a grey day.  It is so dark outside it is like twilight.  I have read that days without sun cause some people to be depressed.  I have never noticed that.  I like being able to see without sun glasses and the somber mood is okay with me.  I must admit I would rather see the sun. 

I was amazed at the temperature in my car when I went to the store! 67! That certainly is warm for January.  I like snow and hope we see some more.  I have some new boots so I can walk in it.  I always said if we have to have winter then there should be snow.  It is so beautiful!  I only have a few snow scene paintings. 

I think after I get through with my current commission and my Wintergreen Blue Ridge Overlook, I will look into painting a snow scene. 

Hope the weather cooperates!

Well, I couldn't be more uptight about a matter that I have to keep private.  I hate these kinds of confrontations but it isn't something I can avoid.  It isn't anything about my artwork but it is quite serious.  Oh well, it will pass and I am looking forward to that day. 

Meanwhile I have two commissions I am working on in addition to every thing else. Yikes!  Better to be busy then not have enough to do but it sure is difficult to find the time.

Another day shot out of a cannon!  I wanted to publish this morning.  This certainly is quite a bit past morning.  I was aiming for 9:30 a.m., not pm.  Oh well.  I got a lot done and met with a great patron that has several commissions for me so I shouldn't complain.  He showed me pictures on his phone of the Kendall Kessler gallery in his home.  That is always great to see!  He will be adding more when I get the paintings done for him. 

Anyway, I will get back to my Wintergreen painting soon, I hope.  I am really inspired by this one overlook there that is so beautiful. Actually, a pair of old sneakers can inspire me. As I told students, and meant it, it isn't necessarily what you paint, it is how you paint it. 

Be sure to view this week's video above!  I am very pleased with my latest Skyline Beauty paintings!  Lots of vibrant color and expressive brushwork!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are both amazed at the number of people that are allergic to peanuts these days. I didn't know anyone with that allergy when I was a kid and now they are every where.  We have a mother and three girls at church that are all very allergic to peanuts so we are all careful about what we bring to church for reception food. 

I make brownies that I know are safe and buy organic snacks that do not have peanuts on the label but there are so many labels that say the product may be made with nuts.  Well, that is weird.  Don't they know? 

Some of the parishoners  say they are making sure they won't be in a law suit if a worker is eating peanuts and handles their product. 

Clyde says they are probably so worried that soon we will see this label.  MADE ON THE SAME PLANET THAT HAS PEANUTS! BEWARE!

That ought to keep them out of court!  LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Finally Gets to Her Blog...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Finally Gets to Her Blog...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please Check out My Latest Youtube! My channel is Kendall Kessler
 
I can' believe I am just now getting to my blog.  Yikes, what a day!  Too much to do.  I know am like a broken record.  I don't know the meaning of the word bored.  Okay, I know the meaning but it certainly does not apply to me. 

I managed another Youtube that I will upload on Monday, cleaned up, practiced the piano for church tomorrow, went to the store for a bunch of things we really can't do without, fixed dinner but did not do the dishes yet. Made some brownies, spent quite a lot of time on Youtube looking at friend's Youtubes and am just two away from four hundred followers! 

Also sent an email to a patron that wants me to do a number of commissions for him.  Also uploaded another painting in my Simple Variations Collection on my website. 

Did I mention all the dishes I did before they piled up again?  I am one busy artist every day of the week! 

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I need to keep up with technological changes and we are reluctant to do so.  He hates using his phone and still uses a small notebook to record bird sightings. He just uploaded his 30, 000th siting to eBirds at Cornell!  What a dedicated naturalist and hater of computers and phones.  His two volume book on Entymology came with two second volumes and no first so I thought we would have to find the receipt and mail it back. 

Well, for his first time, he took a picture of a code on Amazon and just went to show UPS  the code and they pack and ship it back for free.  That certainly is a new experience for us!  I told Clyde we need to keep up. Not keeping up with technology is like one of our relatives whose spelling is so bad  spell check can't figure his words out.  He gave me a lecture on how ridiculous the rules are which is nothing new and certainly not a good reason to not learn to spell correctly.

Anyway, Clyde came back with the book because our mailing service that has many carriers including UPS is not an official UPS store so they can't use the computer code to help us out.  Clyde will have to travel for thirty minutes to an actual UPS store. 

Now that's a Christmas and Computer Ho Ho Ho!  Argh!





Hope Everyone has a Great New Years Celebration!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I can't say I like all the political comments on Facebook but I do like the funnies!

I told Clyde about a Santa cartoon yesterday.  Santa is writing a letter to a mother and tells her he received her son's request for a drum set. 
If she leaves a hundred dollars under the cookie tin he will not send the drum set. 

Of course, Clyde had to put in his two cents. Yeah, the kid can use that cookie tin for drum.  That shouldn't be too loud! 

I don't know about that.  She better just put the cookies on a plate.  The tin could be very dangerous in this case!  LOL!

So pleased to finish Christmas shopping today! I didn't have to wait in line since most people get their shopping done much earlier.  That's the way I like it.  I am trying to get back to a Blue Ridge evening painting but I keep running into obstacles. 

I was thinking I would have to order more expensive oil paint but since I haven't even started I think that will happen in 2020.  Looking forward to Christmas and traveling to see more family after that. 

A friend was so surprised to know that I don't have GPS that I asked at the dealership to show me how to use it.  I didn't see it listed in the instruction book. That's because we don't have it.  That's what I thought.  So now I know.  It is not standard equipment.

Anyway, I am so tired.  Hope everyone has a great Holiday!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We have a cardinal that is about to beat its bird brain right out of his head.  It is seeing its reflection in the window and keeps on clobbering it.  We have tried everything to prevent  this.  We have taped over the window with newsprint. We have posted a hawk but nothing stops this bird from pummeling itself. 

Clyde said maybe it is trying to get in to knock the computer over.

Why would it do that? 

Competition.  More people are on the computer than outside looking at nature. 

Well, it may have to get in line.  I'm about ready to chuck it out the window myself and let gravity do the work so I won't have to anymore.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have fought a skin condition on my torso for decades.  Some people develop a type of brown mold that is extremely hard to get rid of.  I went to the Dermatalogist many times and took a medicine that did not work and pretty much gave up.  Then I discovered if I use over the counter  tinactin I could get rid of it temporarily.  It would go away for a while and then come back. 

Well a few weeks ago I decided that I was going to try real hard to get rid of it by not missing an application morning or night and keep it up until it was completely gone.  I think I finally go rid of it.

I told Clyde it took thirty years but I finally got rid of that nuisance! 

Uh oh.  I'm next.   

There's some birds and insects out there you haven't seen today. 

I'm on my way.

Way too much to do today!  I am overwhelmed! I am so glad that bug that I thought was a 24 hour bug quit after three days. It was very mild except for the first day.  Maybe it was something I ate.  I don't know. 

I am still trying to put out one Demo video a week but I may have to cry uncle. 
This is a lot harder then I thought it would be and I want to concentrate on my Blue Ridge work. 

I do have a good idea that I am excited about if I can get to it with all the other stuff I need to get done.  I am really getting into expressive, coloristic demos and hope to start in a little while.  Hope everyone has a great weekend! 

Maybe one of these days I will see the weekend as different from the week but I doubt it.  Glad to see more print sales on Zazzle!  I have included an address below to one of my more popular items!

Well, sometimes workaholics have to take a day off. It is called illness.  I had some kind of 24 hour bug yesterday that had my stomach so upset I couldn't do much.  It is still bothering me today but not nearly as much.

I have done a lot this morning and am going to try to go to Line Dance class this afternoon. Fingers crossed! 

Anyway, I am real pleased to sell two prints of Sweet Charlotte to a great MA patron!  This time the prints are on Christmas ornaments!

Clyde is quite the dedicated naturalist.  He keeps records constantly no matter where he is. 
The other day when we were traveling our son was wondering why he was jotting down bird sightings when they weren't doing research.
I said your Dad is a very dedicated naturalist. 
Clyde chimed in with yeah, committed or ought to be.

What a great Thanksgiving!  I love to see family in Ferrum!  Hope to see my side of the family soon!  The Kesslers are great people and we always have such a fun time laughing and eating!  I am not a great cook but I am good at brownies and candied sweet potatoes. I have recipes from an old cook book that is excellent! 

People always comment on my fudge brownies.  I only brought home three and they will be gone soon.  Hope everyone had a great day!

I am determined to get a lot of things done today that I was going to do last night but there was a great drama on PBS that I kept trying to tear myself away from and just couldn't.  The Chaperone that was based on the life of a famous actress and dancer Louise Brooks was great!  Loved it! 

I mostly watch DVDS because I can't take all those commercials that seem to get worse and worse.  One of these days the commercials will have more air time than the program.  That's a joke but I wouldn't be surprised if it happened.  Not surprised there are programs that are just one big commercial. 

Anyway, so far no weird things have happened on this Monday.  Smiling and working!  Cheers! Be sure to check out my Monday video!  One a week is tough but I am determined to make it happen!

Wow!  Today I turned on the TV and was amazed to see two young girls slamming away at a stump with axes!  It was The Timber Sports Competition! 

I had no idea there was something like that.  It really wasn't that exciting to see.  Clyde was especially bored. 

Next thing will be a Mud Drying Competition.  A player will claim my mud is the fastest drying mud this side of the Sahara!

The Mud Drying Competition is definitely next!  Maybe they can include a pig to jazz up the sport!  Maybe the pig could be the judge!  LOL!

Yikes!  I practically live in  front of a computer or in my studio and the insect on my thigh was a deer tick!  How in the world did I get a deer tick.  I am hardly ever outside.  I guess one came in to get warm and attached itself to me.  Little stinker. They sure are small. 

Clyde's entomologist friend confirmed it was a deer tick but said he didn't think it had bit me.  Well, then why was there a pretty big crater in my leg with what looked like a tag hanging down that covered the tick?  Anyway, I had blood drawn for the Lymes disease test.  Not taking any chances.   

On an up note I sold another print of Richmond on the James to a great PA patron!  This is my second best selling Skyline Beauty painting.  Be sure to check out that collection!  Also, be sure to click on my latest Youtube below!

Youtube of a Lake Sunset! My channel is Kendall Kessler

Oh Yuck!  Saturday night I noticed an itchy place on the back of my right thigh.  It looked like a tag that had become irritated due to scratching.  It was quite red and it looked like there was a little blood around the place where it was attached to my thigh. 

Well, yesterday I took a better look in better light and saw what looked like some little black hairs around it and it looked more like something that was burrowing into my thigh rather than a tag so I tried to pull it and underneath the flesh  was a very small dark insect.  I used a magnifying glass to try to figure out what it was.  I was relieved to see it had antennae and six legs.  Ticks do not have antennae and they have eight legs.  I think it is probably my first bed bug ever. 

My yearly dermatology appointment is tomorrow.  I will get the verdict on that and some other concerns.  It certainly is another Monday with a lot to do and a lot of problems.  On to the others!  We all just march on!  Be sure to click on my new Youtube below that was uploaded today!

Technology and me do not mix and it is almost always my fault.  I worked on another Demo Youtube today and it ran too long.  I was just about finished when the beep came on.  Not enough room on the card.  ARGGH!  I knew it was longer than some of my other ones but I didn't think it was that long. 

Oh well.  From now on I will have a clock in front of me so I can make sure it does not run over.  Since the paintings are done in layers I think I will still use this one and just get to the next layer. 

Anyway, I am glad to sell another print of Memphis Lights to a great VA patron!  Sold a lot of prints of this commissioned painting.  It is my best selling Skyline Beauty painting!

As I have said before, my Yoga Mantra that I keep to myself is, "I hate Yoga, I hate Yoga, I hate Yoga."  I would never tell our great teacher that and I will never stop going to class.  Yoga is so helpful.  Monday I hurt my back and thought I was in for a bad spell.  I took it easy and by nightfall it was hardly hurting at all. 

Tuesday morning the pain was completely gone!  I really think that is because I do Yoga every day.  I don't like doing it at all but I love what it does for me.  I guess I should try a more positive mantra.  Not going to happen.  I would rather be painting or just about anything else.

Anyway, Yoga really does rock!  Maybe one of these days my mantra will be, "Yoga rocks, yoga rocks, yoga rocks!"  I think everyone should force themselves to do it!

Be sure to click on my latest Youtube Demo video!  I am still making one a week!

I had big plans for all the things I wanted to do today and then Monday decided to clobber me right in the lower back.  Yikes!  Oh well.  I forced myself to take it easy after I moved one too many things in the studio.

Still sore but feeling better now.  So hard for me to take it easy but thankfully there are so many great DVDS to watch!  Hope I can go to Yoga tomorrow.  Back to resting.  Yuck!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Demo Youtube of a very expressive floral! My channel is Kendall Kessler

I am pleased to present a new Collection on my Website called Simple Variations!  There are only two paintings there right now but there will be more.  All of my work is loaded with all the colors of the rainbow in small brushmarks and complicated systems of texture.

Some of them are impasto paintings.  Thees painting have a unique surface that has different elevations throughout the painting. 
In this collection I am taking a much simpler approach with just a few colors and none of them are impasto paintings. They are all acrylic paintings on small pieces of paper with a colored paper background. 

Something different!  Very different for me!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A few days ago Clyde and I went out for a cup of coffee, just coffee.  It was nice to get away from the computer and relax.  When the waitress brought us the coffee she didn't bring any straws.  When Clyde picked his up to drink it I was surprised.  I always use straws. 

You are going to drink that without a straw? 

Yes. 

I always use straws when I eat out. 

Well, I am a Macho Coffee drinker. 

Okay.  I get the hint. Mucho Macho Muchacho!

Drink away.

Well, I made chocolate bread and I don't like it. Not sweet enough for me. I know there are people at our church that do not have the sweet tooth I have so I will take it there for after church reception. I'll bet it will go like hot cakes!

I can' believe I am going to Yoga on a Saturday but my Friday class was cancelled and I really need a class.  I can't make myself do more than twenty minutes of Yoga at home.  I need that teacher telling me what to do for an hour so I can get a good work out. 

I also need to finished a Youtube painting and work on a new Blue Ridge painting.  We workaholics are hopelessly busy.  I need to take a day off.  Yeah, like that is going to happen. 

Oh well.  Happy Weekend everyone!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


We had two Trick or Treaters .  Last year no one came by.  I was surprised to have any since it was raining and the wind was howling.  We sure do end up with a lot of candy which is nice. 

I told Clyde we probably  didn't need to buy candy anymore. 

Yeah, if we didn't buy candy a bus with fifty kids would drive up to our house and completely egg it. 

Right. That is why I buy a lot of it every year.

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I have  new Blue Ridge Parkway Sunset painting! My channel is Kendall Kessler

Wow, try to do something different in the morning and the whole day gets eaten up!  I can't believe I had such a hard time making some chocolate bread using a bread machine!  I had such a hard time finding all the ingredients and then I was shocked when I saw that I didn't have any yeast! I always have yeast because I make my own whole wheat bread. 

Well, this time I dropped the ball and had to go to the store and get some and bring home a pile of mail I had to sort through. Finally got the bread machine going, cleaned up, and am back at my computer post.  I'll bet is would be easier if I made bread from scratch like I used to. 

Oh well, I am looking forward to trying chocolate bread for the first time!

Be sure to click on it!  I have a number of other favorites to show! 

I hate to say is sure is a Monday again but when your favorite hand made ceramic cup decides to break and a piece gashes your thumb, you do have the tendency to agree with Garfield!  It took a very long time to stop bleeding but I don't think I need stitches.  Well, I have managed to get a lot of things done in spite of the wound so can't complain too much. 

Time to get to the next chore and I am looking forward to spaghetti tonight!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As usual, Clyde and I are complaining about TV commercials.  I am just waiting for the networks to give more air time to the commercials than the programs.  Anyway, we were talking about how great they are for the actors. 

I have heard they get paid a lot. 

Just think of how much money that actress that plays Flo makes! 

That's nothing.  What about that lizard on Geico.  Think of the island that thing probably bought and all the lizards diving off the board of his mansion pool!

I don't really want to picture that.  Not real fond of lizards.

I don't usually look forward to a doctor's appointment, but I am anxious to get there today with my husband.  I hope they can give us some great news on his progress.  He is still getting outside to check on migration but he thinks that turtle that was making fun of him has moved on. 

The turtle's last words were, "You try being cold blooded in this weather!"  I can't imagine what that is like but it is cold in the house today.  I think we will be turning on the heat soon.

Love my husband but since he has been home sick I am reminded of a saying I often heard from my mother.  I am marrying you for better or worse but not for lunch.  Just kidding!  He is a great, easy to care for, patient. 

I know he would like to get out of the house.  I hope after his doctor's appointment he will be able to do that.  Meanwhile, you can't keep a dedicated naturalist down.  He can hobble out to the backyard for part of the day to check on migration. 

Also, I was able to upload another Demonstration Youtube!  Be sure to check it out!  This one is in the spirit of Halloween!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When Clyde retires and has the time to join me at Yoga class I doubt he will.  I can't seem to keep my mouth shut about my love/hate opinion of it.  I love what it does for my body but I HATE doing it. 

At the beginning of the last class my teacher asked how everyone was feeling.  I said fine but in my mind I said, "Well, I am here in this Torture Chamber so how do you think I feel?  Of course, I had to tell that to Clyde later that day. 

My Yoga chant is, I hate yoga, I hate yoga, I hate yoga. 

Yet, I intend to go to class two days a week and on the other days I have my own smaller practice. I will do this as long as I can. 

Yes, it does that much for you.

Wow!  I am always complaining about lack of time but when there is a family emergency the time really gets shot out of a cannon! This can't be Thursday!  What happened to that awful Monday that got worse on Tuesday and horrible on Wednesday. 

My husband's food poisoning turned into  a much more severe problem that we had to go to the emergency room about.  They were about to keep him overnight when they managed to get his heart rate down so I brought him home to a lot of medical fun.  As Snoopy once said in the great comic strip, "My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

Anyway, he is better but has to pretty much stay in bed for a while which is the next thing to torture for a naturalist. 

Oh well, he is on the mend and that is great!

Well, it sure is a Monday!  I think I will run with Garfield.  My poor husband was up most of the night with either food poisoning or the flu.  We are not sure which one.  I am going to go get a flu shot today.  We usually wait a little longer so it will last but I am not taking any chances. 

I got a lot of naps lasts night and so did Clyde.  Oh well.  I always think it is best to emphasize what is good about each day and to be thankful for all the great little things that keep me happy which is why it is time for a tea and toast with jam break!

On the up side I did upload another painting demo!  Be sure to click on it and watch me paint an expressionistic swam this time. Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a Print of Huckleberry Line Trail Rain Pond

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a Print of Huckleberry Line Trail Rain Pond

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Watch me paint! My channel is Kendall Kessler!

Well, here I am again after doing so many other things.  I actually got out to the store which was great!  I don't like to shop but I have so little time these days that shopping has become a pleasant break! 
Anyway, I have so many chores that I will just say I am so glad to sell a print of Huckleberry Line Trail Rain Pond to a great Montana patron.

This is a very special painting for me.  When I was first married Clyde and I always took a walk in the good weather on Huckleberry Line Trail. At the end of the walk there was a rain pond! I love to stare at water! We sat there for a while. Such a peaceful place! 

It has since dried up but it will always live in this painting!

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Watch me paint! My channel is Kendall Kessler.

Well, once again I have been crowned.  Yuck.  Now I have three crowns and the Insurance Company still wants to insist I got them for cosmetic reasons.  Yeah, I want people to see gold teeth when I smile rather than the natural color.  It was either get a crown or lose the tooth.  I think they should fess up and pay for part of that so-called cosmetic procedure.  I had to pay $1086.00.  No insurance coverage at all.

Anyway, glad to sell more Blue Ridge painting prints to mountain dwellers like myself!  A great NC patron bought prints of Blue Ridge Autumn and The Smoky Mountains!  A NC patron owns Blue Ridge Autumn and a NY patron owns The Smoky Mountains but wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available!  Check out the possibilities by checking them out in my portfolio with the addresses under the paintings!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A little dark humor this time.

I was joking with Clyde about the next election and told him he would make a great president.

No, but if elected I would make History.

How's that?

I would be the first president to assassinate himself.

Okay, no white house for you unless we paint this one.  Don't think that will happen. I like the brown.

I retired from teaching at Radford University but I still like to express my views on art and hope people get something out of my talks.  There are a lot of misconceptions about art and artists that I like to clear up.  Be sure to click on my videos! My channel is Kendall Kessler

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Thinking about Great Films...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Thinking about Great Films...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Been thinking about all the great movies I have seen.  I have quite a collection and even have some silent films that I think are fantastic! 
The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari is  a masterpiece!  The sets are incredible.  I have never seen expressionistic sets like the ones for this film.  A talking remake was made a while back and I need to order that one, too.  They used footage from the first one.  

I like all kinds, but my favorite ones are about friendship.  If you didn't see the wonderful 80's sleeper, My Body Guard, be sure to see it.  We have a program at our church called Faith and Film.  We take turns bringing in films that we think are uplifting.  I think I will bring My Body Guard next.  Love it! 

Anyway, back to my art form.  Be sure to click on my latest youtube with another Center of my Mind painting! My channel is Kendall Kessler. Sometimes I love music without words!  Also, check out the Special Promotion that ends on Tuesday at the end of the post!

Filmed another Youtube !  Please check it out!  My channel is Kendall Kessler.

This one is a Center of my Mind painting!  I am especially pleased with the energetic brushwork!

So glad to not see 90 degrees on my car monitor!  I hope it stays that way for a while. 
I don't like going from Summer to Winter.  I want some Fall weather.  I wish Claytor Lake could employ some Life Guards and open the bathrooms at the swimming area in the Fall.  I could have been swimming for weeks after they closed down. 

Oh well, there is always The Aquatic Center.  One of these days I am going to get up my nerve to go down the high slide!  Looks like such fun for someone like me that never really grew up!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Finished another Youtube and Fire up the Wok...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Finished another Youtube and Fire up the Wok...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I am so please I filmed another Youtube !  I am trying to have one a week but it is hard.  I was going for one of my coloristic, whimsical works but I think when I finish it , it will have gentle color contrast and soft modulation of color. 

I truly paint in many different directions and I am making it a point to experiment in my Demo youtubes.  The last two were based on sketches but I thought I would probably get wild with the color.  The puppy one certainly isn't lacking in strong color but it is almost monochromatic.  I did use a limited palette but I didn't use strong color accents like I thought I would. 

Anyway, I should have the latest one up  tomorrow and then I want to make a short youtube on my latest Blue Ridge painting that I am very pleased with! 

Be sure to check them out and my Special Promotion of my most popular floral at the end of this blog that ends tomorrow! My channel is Kendall Kessler.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I love to goad Clyde into saying something that makes me laugh.  The other day I was looking at the menu at a Chinese restaurant that we usually go to once a week. 

I asked him why is there a chicken dish that is called General Tsao's Chicken? 

I don't know.  Maybe it was a general that loved to cook.  After he sent the warriors out he fired up the wok. 

Actually, I looked it up and it was named after a nineteenth general who loved eating it.  So, I guess someone else fired up the wok. Probably his wife. 

LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Dodging Kitchen Demons...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I don't care what anyone says.  There are demons in my kitchen. Yes, Mom, I am impatient and move too fast, but the things that happen in my kitchen are ridiculous.  I have tried real hard to slow down but I am always dropping things and I swear trash jumps out of the trash can right after I put it in there. 

I do enough Forward Folds in Yoga in class and in my home practice.  Why do I have to bend down a zillion times when I work in the kitchen?  Like, I said.  There are demons in my kitchen laughing at me!

And who put the caramel sauce on my glasses frame?   LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Dragging herself to the Dentist...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



Not looking forward to this afternoon. I have to get another crown.  This is my third one and I hope it is the last.  My first dentist was awful and did not see that I had three cavities and one was very bad.  They were discovered after we switch dentists. 

Like a lot of people, as I got older cracks developed in spite of the fillings so it is either get a crown or lose the tooth.  Of course, the gold crown is cosmetic according to the  insurance company  so the cost is very high.  How can a crown be cosmetic in any way? 

Oh well, I will paint this morning, do a lot of computer and house chores and then get on over to an unpleasant procedure. 

Glad to have great people that are willing to work in a mouth.

Not much to say today.  It is a beautiful outside!  Maybe Clyde and I can get out to the park and he can continue to try to educate me on birds and butterflies. 
I try but a lot of it goes in one ear and out the other. 

I can draw up a lot of pictures in my mind of what he shows me but the names elude me.  

Time to get to the piano.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are still going through the Married with Children TV show. I bought all seasons and we have been having a great time watching such a hilarious show!  I still accuse Clyde of writing it and hiding the money somewhere.  The lines are so like the clever quips I hear all the time from him. 

He is not an easy audience.  Once in a while I get him to laugh.  On the show they are always cracking jokes about Oprah and one of my favorite Peggy speeches is when she tried to convince Al she works so hard for him. 

She watches Oprah all day so they will have something to talk about.  She dresses up and takes beauty naps so he will be interested in her.  She spends all his money so he will think he is a good provider.  It is an exhausting, thankless job, but she does it all for him. 

How Katie Sagal said all that with a straight face is beyond me.  Yesterday, when Clyde called to wake me up I told him I found a channel that shows Oprah reruns all day long and I was going to watch them so we could have something to talk about. 

Got a laugh from him that time!

Not much to say today.  It is a beautiful outside!  Maybe Clyde and I can get out to the park and he can continue to try to educate me on birds and butterflies. 
I try but a lot of it goes in one ear and out the other.  I can draw up a lot of pictures in my mind of what he shows me but the names elude me.  
Time to get to the piano. 
Cheers!  Be sure to click on my latest Demo Youtube!  Watch me paint!  I will have another one up on Monday!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Slowing down on a Monday

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



Been lazy today.  Well, lazy for a workaholic.  Cleaned out part of my studio, decided on the composition for the next painting, did dishes and vacuumed the floors.  Not bragging.  I'm sure most people have done more today and I have lounged around quite a bit. 

Not like Peg Bundy, but I have been watching a movie that I started yesterday. Time to get it together and get my computer work done.  Banking and supper is next.

Happy Monday!

Wow!  The ants are marching away in our bathroom. The kitchen still has some but they look like they are just wandering around looking for food or their friends.  I guess toothpaste rules.  Masses and masses in the bathroom.

Anyway, between cleaning up my studio and fighting with ants I managed to finish my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and uploaded a video on it.  Be sure to check it out!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
 
Soon we will be looking into moving.  We need to work on this house and find one that will suit us. Could be a year or two but we will move.
As I said before, we will not be down sizing as people tend to do when they retire.  We need more room for all of Clyde's research and I hope I can get a bigger studio. 

Yesterday, I said to Clyde that when we move and have more room we may actually accomplish something we never accomplished with this home.

What's that? 

Clean it up. 

Fat chance.  Dream on.

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


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

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



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 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!

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!

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.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Dirty Dishes, dirty dishes, dirty dishes.  When I was young a friend that had just gotten married said dirty dishes breed like rabbits.  I spend so much time washing dishes that I want to start slinging them out the window. Not a smart thing to do.  Today Clyde did the morning dishes while I got ready for church and did some computer chores.  After lunch they were piled up again. 

I told him that maybe my friend was right.  They multiply. 

I think some of the dirty ones sneak outside and then come back in when we aren't looking. 

How can they sneak outside?  We would see them. 

Maybe they have some sort of invisibility cloak. 

Arggh!  Maybe the real aliens among us are in our cabinets?  Yeah, sure.  Time to do more dishes.

Racing with the clock again!  So much to do.  I can't imagine having a lot of time to just goof off and watch TV.  I watch a little TV for breaks but not much.  I love movies!  So glad they can be paused so I can watch them over days. 


Anyway, I am going to start another Blue Ridge painting and shoot another Suggestions painting video today and tomorrow.  I am going to videotape the Blue Ridge painting and see if I can combine many videos of it for a timelapse one.  That will be way in the future but the Suggestions one will be up soon! 

I am getting great compliments on these Demo videos on Youtube!  Be sure to check them out!  The newest one is below and I started a playlist on my channel. 

I haven't had a Special Promotion up for a while so I decided to put one up today!  Check it out!  40% off regular price of my most popular floral, Natural Rhythm with a 30 day money back guarantee that includes the shipping fee!

Who shot Monday out of a cannon!  I can't believe how little I got done today so now I have to do it now.  Well, what happened was I escaped and went shopping for shoes at the mall.  The only shoe store Radford had closed so now I have to travel to Christiansburg. 

I hate to shop but it was great to get out and the store had a terrific sale!  I got new sneakers and two pairs of dress shoes!  Yes!  I was in and out of there so fast I had time to go get a new blouse! 

So, I finished my third Demo Youtube! I am really getting into these and adding paintings to my Suggestions collection on my website!  A win, win!   Please check it out and click on the link to the finished painting in the Youtube description!

Wow! Hardly any arm wrestling this time!  The painting of Rock Castle Gorge is really coming together without aggravation!  Always great to have this kind of experience.  Sometimes they are so difficult I want to scream and do!  I don't think I scream loud enough for neighbors to hear me. 

Anyway, I will have it in my portfolio soon and please check out my second Demo Youtube on New River Artist.  Most of my Youtubes are so short they don't take much time to upload.  This one is 18 minutes long and it took forever.  I only film two stages and the last stage is done without filming it.  
Be sure to click on the link in the description to see the finished painting!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Present First Demonstration Video and Killing Kryptonite

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please Check out Kendall Kessler Demonstrates a Vibrant Sunflower painting on my New River Artist Youtube channel!

I am happy to present my first Demo Youtube!  It is rather long so I may look into those speeded up ones I see other artists do.  In this one I did the first two stages of a Suggestion painting. 

In these works I paint in an abstract expressionist manner and then look to see if some vague form shows up.  Then I pull it out.  It is a great experience and prints are available.  I don't sell the originals because I use very inexpensive paint and paper for this series. 

The wall art prints and prints on just about anything are archival and great!  I am going to try to make one a week to get more attention on Youtube.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Clyde and I have a lot of criticisms for certain TV shows.  There are many we like and many we can't stand to watch for a minute.  When one of those comes on, I say. 

Oh no! Kryptonite! 

That show would kill kryptonite. 

A show can't kill kryptonite

That one would shoot kryptonite into outer space faster than the speed of light. 

Here's the remote.  You find something.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another print of Richmond on the James

July 19th, 2019

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another print of Richmond on the James

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


So pleased to sell another print of Richmond on the James to a great Georgia patron!  This certainly is a very popular painting from my Skyline Beauty series that I hope to get back to soon! Right now I am working on a demo Youtube and new Blue Ridge paintings.  I always love to return to the Blue Ridge for inspiration and the painting experience is different every time. 

The atmosphere is so elusive and the constant push and pull of warm and cool colors always mistify  me.  I agree with Claude Monet that we can't really reproduce nature due to the constantly changing atmosphere but it is a great experience to try.  It is always, first and foremost a creation of mine.  I express myself in my work. 

I do not labor over nature. 

I love nature and use it in my paintings, not the other way around!

Back from vacation!  We had a great time!  I love not cooking, not cleaning, and not doing the laundry! 
Not having to do those things puts a capital "V" in vacation!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have become very worried about black bears.  The population is thriving and Clyde has had encounters with them over the years when he worked part time with the Forest Service. 

I decided to buy those bear sprays just in case he or I ever have a bad encounter with one. 

On our vacation there were signs to be sure to tie up trash.  Help us to keep our bears wild. 

Before we went out to take some pictures I asked Clyde if he had figured out how to use the spray.  He said no and would just ask one of the bears how to use it. 

Arggh!  He hates to drive but has no fear of bears.  Go figure!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Took a Detour  and Please Vote for My work.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I sure am taking the detours lately.  I started a Blue Ridge painting and then decided to try again for a demo Youtube with a Suggestion painting.  It turned out to be too long for my camera card so I just finished the first stage of it and will add it to my portfolio.  Soon I will get back to my new Blue Ridge painting. I am looking forward to doing a few more from areas along The Blue Ridge Parkway that I will be traveling this weekend!

Seclusion Stage One Original Acrylic painting NFS
This new Suggestion painting is not in my portfolio yet, but will be soon!

The company that handles my print sales is hosting a billboard contest and I would greatly appreciate your votes!  The contest ends July 31st!  Here are the popular paintings I entered. The links have to be put in the title bar.

I didn't realize until people started notifying me, but FAA requires voters to set up an account.  It is free and you can cancel at any time.  Also, if you ever want a print of mine on just about anything, FAA is the place to go!  My work is great for gifts for the person that has everything.  You can't buy a yoga mat with my artwork on it in a store!  Check it out!
 
Thank you!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so pleased to be working on a new Blue Ridge painting!  I was going to paint it in acrylics but now I think it would work better in oils which is always my favorite choice of medium! 

I want to make a completely different type of Youtube so I am putting the painting on hold and am going to demonstrate one of my Suggestions paintings!  I hope I can do that with my voice as background but if it turns out to be real long I am going to speed it up the way I see a lot of artists doing these days. 

Looking forward to getting started!

People really liked my last Life with The Word and Bird Man so I thought I would print it one more time!


Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I had just gotten off the floor from my yoga mat when Clyde came in and kissed me. 

How nice!  A  handsome man walks in the room and kisses me. 

Who? When? 

You, you boob, just now.

You said handsome. 

You are handsome. 

Then why is the mirror on strike and the older one crashed to the floor? 

It is not on strike and no one caused the other one to come crashing down. No one was near it when it happened. 

Yeah, it was thinking about me when it keeled over. 

I think I will get back on the yoga mat.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Prints of Misty Cascades Day...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Still haven't gotten to the second stage of my latest Center of my Mind painting.  I did include the first stage in my Youtube!  Please check it out on !  The name of the channel is Kendall Kessler. I am trying to post a Youtube every week to get more attention for my work there.  Youtube is a hard nut to crack.  Some people actually make a great living with their videos just by posting them there. 

I can't imagine that!  I have looked at a number of these very successful channels and sometimes I can see why but sometimes I am amazed at their success.  I guess I shouldn't be this honest but I'll bet there are others that would agree with me.  Oh well, I keep trying to get viewers for my channel but it is difficult.  Too many other things to do and the most important task is to keep painting so that is next on the list. 

I am real pleased to sell prints of Misty Cascades Day to a great Minneapolis MN patron!  This time the sale was for greeting cards!  I mostly sell original paintings and wall art prints but my work can be purchased on just about anything.  Click on the link under Misty Cascades Day  and look to the right for all the possibilities.  Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist hates Her Mind Reel and Information Super Highway

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


My strong visual memory is bugging me as usual.  My mind is a photo album on steroids.  Everything and everyone is always flipping through my head and I wish I could stop it but maybe that is a price artist's pay for their ability to create.  I don't know.  It would be interesting if someone did  a study on it.  I know it is the reason I have a hard time listening to someone that says more than one or two sentences.  I get distracted by what is going on in my mind.  I use to try to convince people that think all artists are crazy they were wrong.  Now, I am not so sure.  Oh well.  I may be nuts but I am a well functioning nut and I can't wait to get into the studio!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Anyone that knows my curmudgeon husband knows he does not like technology.  I am sure I have mentioned that his solution to computer problems is to open the window and let gravity do the work.

Well, with all the aggravation with our printer, cache, and other assorted problems he has a new solution.

Tie the computer to a rope and drag it down the street.  Call it the Information Super Highway and watch it crunch.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Working Away and They don't make them that big....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Working Away and They don

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Still working on Music without Words paintings and looking forward to one more, this time a large one with a lot of depth.  I know that the illusion of depth is the main reason I like to work from nature most of the time. 
Since I like that effect in my representational works I think it will be a good idea to incorporate depth in a non-figurative one.  I have some ideas in my head and I hope to start tomorrow.  Today has been a whirlwind of computer work that is still not done.  Hope to get finished soon but I usually work in the evenings, too. 
Oh well, this is the life I have chosen.  If I could give up painting I wouldn't be working so hard to promote it but I can't give it up so back to promo! 
Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Yesterday I was washing dishes when I remembered I did not have my glasses on.  I can't get them clean without my glasses.  I was so surprised when I remembered they were on my head I had to run and tell Clyde. 


Clyde, I now know for sure there is hope for me. 

You got a big enough shovel to send me out the door? 

No, I remembered I had my glasses on my head and didn't run all over the house to find them. And they don't make shovels that big. 

Maybe you can take two snow shovels and attach them together. 


Too much work.  Back to the dishes.

I now have Turning Inward on my website!  I really do like to work this way for a while.  The colors seem like jewels sifting around misty systems of colors and brushwork.  They truly are visual music!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Still Staring at the Rain...

Still staring at the rain.  I will be glad when the sunny weather comes back.  I am having a hard time getting any artwork done right now due to various family matters.  But I did photograph my latest Center of My Mind painting in the first stage which may be the last stage.  We'll see. 

Anyway, it is pouring outside and I hope it lets up when I go to Line Dance Class.  I do Yoga twice a week and love it when the little clock the teacher uses is visible.  Can't wait to namaste right on out of there.  It does great things for the body but I don't like it. 

I wonder if there are people that do Yoga and actually like it.  One of the students in the class likes to say we should start with a Yoga nap. We never do.  I guess that is his nirvana that will never be realized in class. 
LOL!

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.  It rained yesterday and it is supposed to rain for the next few days and stop on Thursday.  Glad I got to the lake once.  It is always tricky to swim in the lake due to rainy days this time of year.  We need the rain but it would be nice if it just rained at night.  Oh well.  I will return before the end of the season. 

I can see why people want to live by the ocean but the weather at most beaches does not just include rain, it is scary, home wrecking stuff.  Glad there is a beautiful lake fifteen minutes from my house.  Yea New River Valley!  Love it! 

I decided not to change my latest Center of my Mind painting.  I started another one and may leave it in the first stage, too.  Check it out!  Blue Streak is now on my portfolio and wall art prints and prints on household items and clothing are available!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Yesterday we were on our way to the library.  It is a great library but the parking lot is a tricky one.  I am always looking over my shoulder when I park or leave it. 

Anyway, as we were approaching the parking lot Clyde pointed out the Slow Cross walk sign. 



Watch out. That cross walk moves very slowly.  You don't want to hit it.   

And it is named Bump.  Don't let it bump you. 

We made it.  No injuries.

Life with a wacko writer.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Music Without Words...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Such a beautiful Monday!  Not too hot and there is a nice breeze coming through the window.  A brown thrasher is digging under the brush where the bushes are.  It is making quite a lot of noise as it looks for food.  This time of the year the birds around the house are very loud.  Sometimes in the mornings they wake me up with shrill calls.  We have so many trees and bushes and many of them are building nests.  Glad to be of help. 


I put the finishing touches on my current nude paintings and I am considering working on some abstracts.  Music without words!  I mostly sell paintings and prints with recognizable subject matter but sometimes it is a great experience to create works that people either like or don't like just based on their visual reaction to the colors and textures. 


Looking forward to starting these!

Started my first new abstract painting and am going to start another one before I go to the second stage of the first one.  It is always hard to know when to say a painting is finished but I find it is especially hard when there isn't any recognizable subject matter. 

As I said last time, these paintings are like music without words but when are there enough notes and are they working together?  Anyway, here is Blue Streak Stage One.  It may change, it may not, but it will be included in my portfolio.

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am again saddened by another mass shooting.  This is crazy and I am so sorry for the loss of innocent lives.  I don't know what the answer is but I am bothered that the thought of being killed by an imbalanced person where ever I go is always in my mind. 

This did not happen when I was young.  No one thought someone would just start shooting people at a place of business, school, or anywhere else.  I wish there was a way to stop this madness. 

In the great movie, The Dresser, in one scene the main character played by the late Albert Finney gave theater tickets to a man that had just lost his home.  He told him he hoped they would bring him some comfort.  I hope that my paintings that are always meant to be uplifting bring some comfort to people.

On a happier note, I finished Standing Shadows and it is now on my website.  The original is available as are wall art prints and prints on just about anything. 

I hope everyone has a pleasant weekend.

I have the second stage of Standing Shadows completed and am pleased with the intense mood of this work.  The girl looks as if she is holding herself for security but she is about to walk off the podium into the shadows.  Pleased with the strong emotive effect that is accentuated by vibrant color contrast.  I think this one will be the last one for a while.

There will be one more layer but it may not look that different.  I achieved what I wanted to achieve with these new nudes and now I want to move on to something else. 

Time for a break!  Going to the lake before it rains.  The warm weather ends so quickly that I am determined to get to the lake as much as possible. 
Cheers on a beautiful Wednesday!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Progress on Latest Painting

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Progress on Latest Painting

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am having a great time working on my latest addition to my Beautiful Nudes series!  I keep wondering when it is going to start aggravating me.  It is in acrylics and acrylics don't usually aggravate me the way oil paint does.  Don't misunderstand.  I love to paint and I really do live to paint but it isn't easy.  If it were easy I think it would be boring and I would give it up.  It is always a new experience that challenges all that I am as an artist. 

It is such an intense mind experience.  As long as I can stand up I will paint.  I know many people think artists sit and some do but most do not because they have to walk back and forth and see how the work looks at a distance.  It shouldn't only exist up close.  We want the experience to carry far into a space. 

Time to get into that space and get to work!

Such a beautiful evening!  I work all the time but I still think Friday nights are special.  The temperature is just right and the birds are singing.  I look forward to joking around with Clyde after I do a few things on the computer.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a much tougher audience than I am so I am always pleased when I come up with something that makes him laugh. 

I am so tired of hearing all the claims made by drug companies. Tonight one was using the four out of five people that use their drug get the results they claim they will get. 

I said four of five people that used that drug are dead. 

Clyde chimed in with, and the fifth one is in a coma. 

Wow! Mean spirited tonight!  Just joking around.

Still trying to get to my latest painting. Yikes!  Too many other things to do with computer work and house repairs.  I have an appointment at 11:00.  Hope I can back to it after that.  Running around in circles.  It seems like Monday turns into Friday with the snap of my fingers.  I wish I could slow down time, at least a little.  Here is the first stage again.  It will change quite a bit in the next stage.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

What we have here is the failure to communicate. 

Clyde never misses an opportunity to turn one of my requests into a joke. 

With the acquisition of our latest car, I decided we, that especially includes my two guys, were not going to junk it up with trash that ends up under the seat and I get the fun job of getting it out.  I would have been shot into the middle of next week if I pulled that stunt on my parents. 

Anyway, when we got back from our NC wedding trip we had a little trash from the trip so my first remark before exiting the car was I am going to be sure to get this trash out. 

Don't worry. I am getting out. 

Droll.  Very droll.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking at the Rain...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Lots of rain today.  I have never minded rainy days.  They are quite peaceful if there isn't a storm going on. 

I am still adding paintings to my Beautiful Nudes series.  So far I have been working on 9" x 12" ones but I decided to work on a large one.  I always like to work on big paintings. 

I remember hearing an artist on TV say size is only measurement but I don't agree.  I like all sizes but I prefer the vista of a large work, especially for landscapes.  The bigger the better! 

I am glad for all the print options these days.  Patrons can get huge prints of my work and I do have some very small works that are not for sale due to the quality of the paper and paint.  The prints are great and archival!

Hi Everyone!  I am back from a great wedding.  We all had a wonderful time!  The ceremony was beautiful, the food was fantastic, and I enjoyed meeting friends and family of the bride and groom! 

Wonder, the painting below is a portrait of the groom I did years ago. Thomas is my nephew by marriage. The couple is honeymooning in Jamaica.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at a Broken T.V. and Walking to Afghanistan...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at a Broken T.V. and Walking to Afghanistan...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

More Fall of the House of Kessler. We are waiting on a plumber to give us an assessment on pipe replacement.  We still have a  hole in our son's room where the massive leak destroyed a large section.  Now the TV we had hooked up to cable decided to completely die.  We thought it might have to do with the cable service. 

It would come on but only show the symbol for the brand but not go to any channels.  The only way we could get rid of the symbol was to unplug it.  Well, the cable service provider came over today and pronounced it dead.  Now where do we bury it?  I don't want to pile more junk up.  I was hoping it could be fixed.  Oh well, time to get a new one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Our printer can be very irritating.  Sometimes when I turn it on it is ready to print and other times it boops and beeps for a very long time before printing.  I told Clyde I could knit an entire Afghan before it would print. 

He said he could walk to Afghanistan, maybe have to use a row boat here and there, but still be back before it started to print. 

I think he is right. I hope I can get the prints I need before someone writes my obituary.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at Inner Tubes

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

It is heating up outside and I am looking forward to blowing up my inner tubes and going to Claytor Lake!  Love swimming there!  Alan and I do some laps and then we spin around in our tubes.  The temperature is climbing and I am looking fondly at my swimming suit. 

Last week I went to the Aquatic Center for the first time in many months.  It is so hard to find time to get over there but I did it last Wednesday which turned out to be high on my list of worst days ever.  Irritations galore plus bad news from a relative made me look forward to Thursday. 

Oh well, we all have bad awful days like Grover from Sesame Street.  I read Grover's Bad Awful Day to Alan many times and I often think of the solution.  Go get a ice cream sundae and cheer up!  I had a caramel creme yogurt bar instead but it was great!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Bull Dozing Paper work...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Wow! I try so hard to organize everything but sometimes I feel like I am on a sinking ship without a life boat.  I have a huge section of documents on one of my shelves that I can't put in the computer room because that room is filled with Clyde's Naturalist and Poetry documents.  The closet and three book shelves are loaded. 

So, today I decided to play Librarian.  I sorted through everything and placed them in sections and typed out a document with the list of what is there starting on the left side and ending on the right side.  Hopefully that will help so I won't groan big time when I need to find something. 

I remember a long time ago I bought an organizing gift for my Dad since he was covered up in documents.  He, of course, thanked me and then said, "Now where am I going to put it?"  These days everything can be on a computer but we have to have paper back up so the paper chase goes on!

Trying to get away but it is hard.  So much to do but I would like to get down to the Aquatic Center.  Haven't been there in a long time.  I am not a great swimmer but there is more to life than Line Dancing and Yoga.  I am stretched out so it is time to pick up the pace and do some laps.  Not the most exciting thing to do but definitely a good thing to do.Looking forward to lake swimming soon! 

Maybe I can get out right after lunch and before grocery shopping. 

Here's to moving fast!

Such a gorgeous day!  Clyde and I got out for a walk in beautiful Bisset Park yesterday!  Glad to get away from work for a while.  Can't do it today but hope to soon.  Clyde is a one-man educator.  I always learn about birds, butterflies or plants when I walk with him.  I wish everyone had his interests. 

I think if children were taught more about nature they would appreciate the world more and get off their phones.  I liked it better when we didn't have to take a phone with us.  In the house and on street corners was fine with me.  Oh well, we can't stop progress but sometimes I am not so sure what we are told is progress- is progress. 

Time to get off the soap box and work in the studio.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased with Latest Painting and More Big Foot

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased with Latest Painting and More Big Foot

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am very pleased with my latest Beautiful Nude painting! I had the first stage on my website but it turned out so well that I just replaced the file with the finished painting that was not much different from the first stage.  Sometimes they really come together without a lot of torment.  I hope the next one that I just started works out that well.  I have my doubts from the first stage. Not real happy with it.

Oh well.  Never give up and don't let painting drive you nuts.  That is my motto!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
I don't have anything from Clyde today but since some of Alan's friends used to tease him and call him Big Foot, I thought he would like a joke I saw on Facebook. 

Under a picture of Big Foot tramping through the Forest there is this caption.  Leave the camp site without a trace. 
If Big Foot can do it, so can you. 

Love it!  So did Clyde.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Loves her new Table and Not Crocked...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so pleased to own an adjustable table for my computer!  Now I can stand up rather than get all stiff in a chair!  The table can easily be adjusted for sitting or standing. I highly recommend it!  They say sitting at a computer is the new smoking. 

I much rather stand to work!  I have always had good feet.  Not as good as they used to be, but they still keep me up! 

Here is the first stage of my new Beautiful Nude!  It is working out very well!  I don't think this one will be an art arm wrestling match. Hope I am right!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have been looking for a wedding gift for a  great nephew and bride and I decided a fancy crock pot would be a good one.

When Clyde called to get me up I mentioned that to him.

How about a crock?

You say you are crocked? 

You know I don't drink. 

A crock pot for Thomas and Sophie. 

OH.  Glad to know you haven't taken up drinking.

Not yet.  Give me time.  You may give me a reason to start. 

Wish I could go back to sleep. 

Well, since you don't need an eye opener, get up. 

Bye.  Go bug someone else.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Celebrating Easter

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Happy Easter to those that celebrate it! My hairdresser was selling easter eggs to benefit a church so I bought one.  It was a maple one and fantastic!  I am eating a little each day.  Haven't had an Easter egg since I was a kid getting my own basket.  Great memories of those days.  Loved the Easter egg hunts.  I'll never forget one that my Dad gave when I was very young.  I don't remember who it was but a real nice boy was worried I wouldn't find any so he pointed out some to me.  What a nice guy! 

Anyway, for Christians this is a great day of celebration!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with New Wix website and Out Back...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Well, I managed to send out my first Wix newsletter without too much screaming at the computer.  You would think this sort of thing would be easy, but I am definitely computer challenged.  I didn't quite get it the way I wanted it to be but it was sent out and received.  I don't know how to see who opened it yet but I will stumble around until I find that info. 

I did have some bounced emails so I will have to clean up my list.  I sometimes wonder if the bounce is correct.  I have had some bounce on one newsletter and then open in the next.  Maybe their email box was too full.  Oh well, I will remove the bounced ones or Wix will get mad at me.  If you are signed up for my newsletter and you don't get one from Wix once a month, let me know and I will re-add you address. 

I will alternate with my Fine Art America newsletter which is quite a different format and includes print options. 

Now, for the most important part of my work, below is the final version of Alone which I am very proud of!  I don't mean it to be a sad painting, just a pensive one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A while back my sister was asking about our Subaru Forrester.  If it were up to me we would get a cheap car but Clyde is better at purchasing things than I am.  I look at the price tag, he looks at the car so we got a good one.  She was considering buying one but she thought she would like something a little bigger so she bought a Subaru Outback. 

Clyde said that is so she can keep it out back and take up the whole field.  She has a few acres.  We don't.

Her name is Sue so her husband calls the new car Sue'sbaru.

I am getting it together with my Wix website!  I may be computer challenged but I eventually figure things out.  Sometimes I can find the answer on Google and sometimes I just wander around until I get what I want.  I will be sending out my first newsletter later today if I don't run into any more glitches! 
If you would like to get a newsletter from me, be sure to let me know!  I only have originals for sale on Wix but I am considering their offer to sell prints.  I will continue to sell prints on Fine Art America.  I know they do a great job.  I have ordered cards and am very impressed with the quality of the image.  I send out a newsletter every two weeks so I am going to alternate between Wix and Fine Art America.  Hope that works out. 

Cheers on Palm Sunday if you celebrate it!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Appreciating the Advantages of Acrylics

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am really getting into Acrylics these days. I can remember a time when I just didn't like them at all.  The fast drying time didn't work well with the way I used to paint but now I can pretty much make paint sit up and beg.  I will always like oils the best but now the fast drying time of acrylics is an asset to certain types of my paintings. 

Since I am working on some expressive nude paintings I am pleased to be able to paint many layers in the first stages.  The colors are strong and sometimes a water medium is great!  No smell of mineral spirits.  Anyway, check out the first stage of my new nude!  I don't have a title for it yet and it is not on my website but it will be soon!

I am having such a hard time getting to my Wix site due to all the other internet stuff I do that I may take a break from Wordpress for a while and see if I can get a blog going there.  My wix site is free right now so I probably won't get much traffic but I want to get it going before I upgrade.  I think I need to be more centrally located to get more exposure for my artwork.  It is a beautiful day and I was able to begin another Beautiful Nude painting that I will add soon.  I am not happy with the first stage so I am going to wait until the next layer before adding it.  I love to work with the figure!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I think I have mentioned before that I have always had trouble with grammar.  I thought those line diagrams sentences were too weird to understand and simile and metaphor don't make sense to me.  No one can be a pig.  They can be like a pig but they can't be a pig.  Anyway,  I also have big time problems with not ending a sentence with a preposition.  Who are you going with? makes much more sense to me than With whom are you going? 

Clyde came up with a good one. Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put. 

Yikes!  I think I will continue to hide out from the Grammar Police.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Enjoying the Warm Weather

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so glad to have some warm weather!  Such a long winter and my skin has dried out so much it itches.  My doctor said I may have some eczema so I am going to buy some hydrocortizone.  Lots to do today but I hope I can get out for a walk.  Hope it does not rain. 

I don't have anything from The Word and Bird Man but I did see a great funnie on Facebook. It was a picture of a ground hog singing into a mike.  The lyrics were, I am nothing but a ground hog, lying all the time!  That is for sure!

Be sure to check out my Specials on large canvas prints that end today.  I always have three popular selections but I leave one up for a while.  I will take down Wildflower Current soon.  Don't miss out on the 40% reduced price!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other night I was thinking about how little problems  almost always turn into big ones.  We have had so many problems with our house in the last few years that I am naming it The Fall of the House of Kessler after one of Poe's stories.  We had a small leak that turned into a big leak and now we have to have all our pipes replaced.  Yikes! 


I mentioned to Clyde that I was beginning to see how little problems always turn into big problems. 

Sorry about that. 


Not you.  You are not the one cause of every thing bad. 

Good to know. 

Argh!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Letting the Painting talk to her...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Letting the Painting talk to her...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist
Having an interesting time with a new Suggestions painting.  I thought I knew what to do with it and then it took a completely different direction and now it is going back to the first idea.  I am letting this painting take me along for the ride as I am working on it without preconceived notions of what I want or what it is supposed to be. 

The first layer seemed to indicate flowing brush of some sort so I decided to have a landscape of the sun as seen through weeds.  I didn't like how that was turning out so I went back to just reacting to colors and textures and then trees seemed to appear so I decided to have a landscape with trees and brush.  I may put the sun back in but that is a decision for another day! 

I always like what happens with my Suggestions series!  They are a great painting experience! 

I now have my latest still life on my website and prints are available!

So pleased to finish a still life!  I don't have it on my website but I will put it there soon!  I don't paint a lot of still lifes but when I do I try real hard to make them special and visually captivating.  I think the surface and delicate light effect make this one something to see!  Be sure to check out others in my Still Life Collection!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Last night I asked Clyde how his knee is doing. 

Do you still have pain there?

Yes.

I have a pain now. 

I am not leaving. 

Not you.  I have a pain in the back of my right ankle.  So, if I were to compare you to a  pain I wouldn't say you were a pain in the neck.  I guess I would have to say you are a pain in the heel. Or, maybe just a heel.  I think that word is still used to describe a crummy person. 

Married too long to a writer.  You can't help but pick up on the weird word play.

So pleased that a yoga friend decided to try out Line Dancing today!  I tell people all the time about how great Line Dancing is.  We had a big class today with two new students that did great.  Both of them had Line Danced before so they picked up on the steps and did well.  Both of them will be back!  Exercise doesn't have to be a dull experience.  Dancing is a great way to keep fit  Now, if someone would just open another Skating Rink I would be completely happy!  So sorry the terrific one we had closed.  I don't have time to go to Roanoke so I hung up my skates.  Oh well, dancing and yoga keep me going!

The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Clyde and I have been having a hard time with itching.  He thinks it is because of the long winter.  He is using cocoanut butter and I am using some salve that I like.  I don't like smelling like an Almond Joy bar.  Anyway, I have so much itching on my abdomen that I am wondering if the material used in yoga pants may be the problem. 

I just looked up namaste and there are a lot of different meanings.  I thought it was like saying peace to someone.  Actually most sources say someone is bowing to the spiritual in the person they are saying namaste to. 

Clyde said if that is true then he doesn't think those pants have namaste threads. 
There is nothing peaceful or respectful in pants that make you scratch. 
Maybe I should find some other pants.

Well, I have taken a detour from my new nudes series. I found an old painting that I decided to finally finish and I started a small Suggestions painting.  Glad for both of these paintings since I had a lot of oil paint left on my palette and like Renoir, I hate to waste paint. 

Anyway, I will get back to the nude series after I finish these two paintings.

Clyde and I are still catching up on Married with Children.  What a great show! The other night they showed an episode where Al's life is saved by his lucky shoe horn that he had in his breast pocket.  Of course, he had to make the crack that he didn't die so the shoe horn let him down. 

I told Clyde he would never say he wanted to die like Al Bundy.  No, you would kill me. 

Ha ha.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I keep seeing on TV that we should live in the special moments.  Okay.  Call me Sheldon or Spock but how do we not live in any of our  moments? Do we die during some of them and live during others? Why are some moments more special than others?  I guess what they mean is we should really pay attention to special times. 

I asked Clyde if he lives in the special moments.  He said he consults his pet rock to find out which ones are special.

Again with the pet rock. 

I hope we move on to something else soon.

Wow, so many Insurance commercials.  I do think we need health and car and home insurance but I know we can be over insured.  I know I could have bought a number of washing machines for the amount someone asked me to pay annually to insure it a long time ago.  Glad I didn't take him up on that.  I think there are Insurance Companies for just about anything these days. 

Clyde said there is probably one to insure your pet rock. 

One scratch and we will throw another one right at you.  Don't forget to duck.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Determined to Finish Current Painting

My latest painting is really aggravating.  The second stage was great.  I should have left it there.  I am so glad I preserve the different stages.  A common complaint among artists is that sometimes we go too far and kill a good painting.  Well, I am nothing if not extremely stubborn.  I had two stubborn parents and have three stubborn siblings. 

As my older sister said, "Two big stubborns make four little stubborns."   No offense to my family.  Let's just say we are all very determined to accomplish what we set out to accomplish.  Oh yes! That sounds much better. Anyway, I am going to get in there and try to save it.  Crazy artist to the rescue, I hope.

Below is the painting I did right before my current arm wrestler.  This one turned out really well! Ah, the good old days! This is Stage Two.  I forgot to get the finished version copyrighted and I don't have time to do that right now so be sure to check out the final version in my portfolio!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Arm Wrestling and Out to Lunch...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist It looks like my new figure painting is turning into an arm wrestling match.  Oh well, my recent wildflower painting was a beautiful stroll through paint.  I guess it is time to appreciate the ones that aren't so difficult by dealing with one that is.  It is coming along but it has taken a few detours that I had not anticipated. 

As I told Clyde right before I mailed a landscape that I really didn't want to let go of, you probably have no idea what I am talking about.  I tried to explain to him why I thought it was an exceptionally successful work.  He nodded politely while I rambled on. Art is so much more complicated than the average person understands.  I really think you have to make it to fully understand what a strange process it is. 

Time to get off the soap box and get back to work.  I never give up!  I decided to list the second stage here again.  I was happy with that stage.  We'll see about the third.

Well, our phone is acting up again.  It doesn't want to work in the morning.  This has happened before and it is irritating. So many things are messing up in our house that should not be messing up.  We may have another problem with our solar system that was recently repaired. 

I told Clyde everything in this house has a mind of its own.  His reply.  Except us.  We are both out to lunch.  He may be right. 

I think we could both win a Ditsy award if one is ever offered somewhere, somehow , someway.

Very excited about my new figure painting in acrylics!  I am using more layers than I usually use in each stage so I can properly build up the figure's form.  As I told my students, ad nauseam, anyone can draw a figure.  To get it right is the mark of an artist. 

Most people don't realize how much time artists spend learning the human form in drawing classes.  It is quite a discipline as we go through mountains of newsprint to get it right.  Since I am using more layers I am learning some things about acrylics I didn't know before this painting. 

Oils is my main medium and I am usually more spontaneous with acrylics. Should be interesting to see how this one turns out!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day someone was talking on TV about how home doesn't have to be one place. There can be many places that people can call home. 

I brought up the saying I had always heard.  Home is where you hang your hat. 

Clyde said home is where you can still unlock the door because the lock hasn't been changed. 

Well,  I don't think I will change the lock on him. 

At least I don't think I will.

Probably not today. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Figure Paintings and Right out the Door...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am back to the figure which is a particular love for artists.  We don't draw and paint nudes to be provocative.  We just love the beauty of the human form and all the expressions that different poses give us.  I am working on an expressive painting of a woman's back as she is turning slightly to her right.  There will be many layers as I build up the form and add colorful brushwork.  I was pleased with the first stage so I added it to my portfolio for prints. Here it is!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am still going to Yoga twice a week and I have a short practice at home the days I don't have Yoga.  Yoga does fantastic things for the body and I still hate it.  I want Clyde to take it when his schedule allows him to so I should keep my mouth shut about how I hate it. 

Anyway, yesterday I told him one of the teacher always suggests some alternative moves to the ones she is demonstrating and she says whatever feels good. Well, there are stairs over there and the front door at the end of them.  I think it would feel real good to walk down those stairs and go right out that door.  Of course, I keep my mouth shut in class.  I just keep forgetting to keep my mouth shut at home.

Don't misunderstand.  Yoga is a great way to keep the body going and I will keep at it.  I don't have to like it.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another print of Richmond on the James

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am very concerned about our environmental problems.  I don't think ocean's temperature is rising or the polar ice caps are melting because it is just time for that to happen.  I think we contribute to  this problem with the amount of carbon dioxide we are pumping into the air.  I realize there are many people that think climate change is a hoax but I don't agree. 

I am also concerned about all the plastic materials that are not being recycled and ending up in the ocean.  Yesterday I saw a post about the use of recycled plastic in roads in India and I was so pleased to see that.  I shared the information and someone said it was a bad idea.  The person said it was a environmental microplastic generator.

I don't get into debates on Facebook but I do look up issues to see what is a reasonable conclusion.  I found many articles that support the use of plastic for roads.  These articles carefully back up their position so I think the announcement about these roads is a good one.  There are those that think the heating of the plastic can cause problems. 

Here is a section of an article that explains how that is not the case.

To environmentalists who believe that the technology could be harmful because of toxic fumes from plastic residue, Dr Vasudevan points out that the plastic used is softened at 170C. “Plastic decomposes to release toxic fumes only if it is heated at temperatures above 270C (518F). So there is no question of toxic gases being released,” he says. Since plastic coats the stone and interacts with the hot bitumen, it’s properties change and it doesn’t break down when exposed to light and heat.Here is the address to the whole article.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Reflects on Favorite Author and Do not want a Chrome Dome...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Reflects on Favorite Author and Do not want a Chrome Dome...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I don't have much to say about anything going on in the world.  I am encouraged by some events and discouraged by others.  I guess Dickens first line in Tale of Two Cities will always apply to this planet.  It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the epic of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way– in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. 

I am, like many, a big Dickens fan and I have been fascinated by the sources for his novels.  They are mostly about specific events in his life.  Every one knows that David Copperfield is based on much of his life but I'll bet not many people know that the character Estella from Great Expectations had her origin in the young actress Dickens left his wife for. 

The character Tiny Tim was based on one of his girls that died when she was very young.  His father spent time in a Debtor's prison like the father of the main character in Little Dorrit.  There are many more examples. 

He wisely drew from his own life and created some of the most memorable and fascinating characters in literature.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When I was young there were two things young guys did not do to their hair.  They did not shave their head when they experienced hair loss and they did not dye their hair a different color.  Yes, they let it grow which really shook up the previous generation but that was it. 

Times have certainly changed.  Now most guys have short hair but there are plenty that don't and they have no problem with changing the color.  The famous violinist David Garrett is really a brunette but he dyes his hair blonde. 

I don't have any problem with hair dye or long hair but I really have a problem with shaved heads.  I don't know why but I prefer to see some hair.

Anyway, Clyde still has plenty of hair and I told him that I would hate it if he shaved his head if he started to go bald.  He pulled his beard. 

Does it look like I am going to use a razor any time soon? 

I don't think I will be seeing a shiny Clyde chrome dome in the future.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Checks out the Oscars and He Hopes it sprouts wings...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Checks out the Oscars and He Hopes it sprouts wings...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I was just looking at the oscar awards for this year and I have heard many people say they are pleased with the results.

I used to keep up with the oscars since I am such a movie buff but I don't follow them now that there is no end to the type of movies I can get on Netflix and at the library. 

I have found so many great independent films and foreign films that I have bought a number of them.  I have quite a collection and keep adding to it.  I love all kinds of movies and admire all the people that take part in producing them. 

I will definitely check out the winners when I get more time, especially At Eternity's Gate starring Willem Defoe.  I am a big fan of his and there are two lesser known films that he starred in that I want to order.  Victory and The Reckoning.  Sam Neil also stars in Victory and I think it was one of, if not, his most powerful performances.

I even have a fantastic restored version of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari which is one of the first horror films.  By today's standards it is not that frightening but it is one of my all time favorite movies.  When it was first shown in Germany people were screaming in their seats.  How times change!  

I could go on and on. I still agree with those that think Citizen Kane is the greatest film ever made.  I think the main reason I am so impressed with it is the cinematography.  Orson Welles was a painter and the compositions in Citizen Kane are fantastic! 

Anyway, back to my work.  I was going to start another wildflower painting but I am thinking of painting a home flower garden.  I love the way some people arrange their flowers. 

So many ideas, so little time.  Cheers on a Monday!

My phone is always beeping and booping at me.  It makes a type of bell sound every time Facebook adds something.

When someone wants to contact me directly I get a sound that makes me think of the game of ping pong. 

Anyway, the other day it started sounding off and I told Clyde I had to talk to my phone too much of the time. 

He said he wished it would sprout wings and go fly off a cliff. 
Gee, do you think Clyde hates cell phones?

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sad to Hear of the Death of Peter Tork and Too much Rain...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sad to Hear of the Death of Peter Tork and Too much Rain...

Blue Ridge Parkway

I was so sorry to hear of the death of Peter Tork. I was not a big fan but I admire anyone that can be successful in the music field.  The show was just a two year hit but it was fun and after a struggle he was able to obtain work when it was taken off the air.  Music has always been an important part of my life and I play my piano every day and hope my fingers can keep going.  So far no arthritis.  My grandmother and great uncle attended Peabody Conservatory which is difficult to get into and they both taught music. 

My niece is married to the celebrated composer, Atli Orvarsson, who makes an excellent living composing music for movies.  The most prominent one that comes to mind is Pirates of the Caribbean.  The music world has changed quite a bit.  There was a time not too long ago that accomplished musicians that played with rock and roll bands were not accepted by orchestras. 

Now there are cross over musicians like David Garrett that play classical and popular music.  I like all music and own a lot of music CDs. 

My latest wildflower painting is just about done.  I have two stages of it on my website and after some tweaking I will post the final version.  I think I may switch to some abstract acrylic paintings for a while.  Oils is my main medium but it is such an intense experience I like to work with mediums that I just use water with.  Time to switch on that exhaust fan!  The studio is full of the smell of mineral spirits.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sounding Off and Dinosaur Fun..

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

As always this blog is about my artwork and, yes, one of the purposes is to sell it.  My artwork is extremely important to me and in order to make it I have to sell it.  As I have said may times I can't take them with me and I want them to exist after I am gone. 
Having said that I have decided to continue to talk about my work AND to start paying more attention to what is going on around me.  I tend to hide in my own world. 

I am going to start giving my opinions about other things that are happening starting with this Jussie Smollet news item.  Either way this is an awful event.  If the actor was attacked by people that want to equate racism and homophobia with Make America Great Again then I am appalled that there are people that think that way.  If the actor made up this attack I am appalled that he would do that to get attention for himself or to bring more emphasis to a terrible trend among some citizens of this country.  I can only hope people that equate the slogan Make America Great Again with hate will come to their senses. 

There.  Opinion stated and now I have to get back to a lot of art promotion on the internet.  My latest wildflower painting is in the third stage and coming along without intense aggravation.  I keep wondering when it will start acting up but I think this one is smooth sailing.  Yes!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Last night I was watching a commercial that asked people why they didn't take something to improve their brain since they take medications to improve their body.

I asked Clyde that question and he said taking a medication to improve his brain would by like spitting water melon seeds at a tyrannosaurus rex and expecting it to stop charging.

I think we will continue to be as drug free as possible.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy she is not Arm Wrestling and Lock the Door...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am still waiting for the arm wrestling on my latest painting. I am amazed at how cooperative it has been so far. I think there is a demon hiding behind my storage bin that is just waiting to come out and pounce. I hope not. Nothing wrong with a painting that comes along quietly without my pulling out a gun and putting it out of its misery.

I have been at this far too long to get that mad at a painting. I wish I had some of the ones I thought were losers when I was too hard on myself.

Glad I got over that nonsense. I have won many awards from prominent people and I now agree with them. I think my work will last!

Last night Clyde was watching How to Train a Dragon. Such an unusual movie! The one that looked like a cat was especially strange.

I asked Clyde what could I do to train him?

Throw me out the front door and lock it?

How would that train you?

I don't know. I guess you will have to try it and see.

Too cold out there and I don't think it would do much good anyway. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is on the Wildflower Path and Where is the Cup...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Still happy with my latest wildflower painting. I have finished the second stage and will add it to my website on Fine Art America where prints can be purchased. I have been posting my stages for a while now and prints have been bought of different layers of a painting that no longer exist. This is a great way to preserve the journey through a painting.
The first stage is usually the easiest. The arm wrestling tends to happen in later layers. I work until I am pleased with each stage. I just know it needs more. This one is coming along without much aggravation so far. I think I will paint one more wildflower painting and then move on to something else.
Love to paint! Live to paint!

We have had quite a few things go wrong in the last two years. The biggest one was the new roof. I think we are experiencing the Fall of the House of Kessler. Just joking. Now, my coffee pot has blitzed out. The water won't go through the pipe thingy. Anyway, it was a cheap one so I am thinking of getting a better model.

Clyde says the more expensive ones have gotten too complicated.

I don't want one that has to contact China to find out where the cup is.

Ha ha. I think we will manage.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Still complaining about computers. I keep trying to work on my Wix site and weird things happen that are not supposed to happen. I wonder if it is a cache problem. Every time I mention to Clyde we need to clean out the cache I get some sort of run around about how that would mess other things up. I would handle these problems myself but I think it wise to listen to someone that is on a computer eight hours every day. I am sure he knows more than I do about this machine that helps and irks me every day. I don't get as mad at it as I used to. All these road blocks just seem to be part of the experience now and I am tired of throwing tamtrums so I will keep on trying. I know there is a friendly button somewhere that I am missing. I will keep on looking.

I am getting real tired of these commercials with people that claim they have a car but don't use it because they can't afford insurance. I don't believe that one for a minute. I'm sure there are plenty of people driving without insurance. The courts are full of them. I mentioned that to Clyde when one came on carrying a large bag next to her children.

Sure, she doesn't drive. She has a gun in that bag. Give me a ride or else!

I think my scenario of driving without insurance is more likely.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having Computer Fun and Cheap Turpentine...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am having a great time with my latest wildflower painting and hope to get the second layer done soon. More and more I am letting the paint take shape with a strong impasto effect that seems to melt beautifully into the canvas.

I have seen a number of how to paint youtubes that are speeded up so the viewer does not have to watch for a such a long time. It is fun to see the work look like it is magically appearing.

I may do one of those myself. I tried a while back but had trouble with the software which is never a surprise. As usual, I am not figuring out the instructions on a computer. I now have two blank pages on my Wix site that I did not mean to add. According to the site, one of my pages needed to be modified. When I did a blank page appeared.

Computers, computers, computers. I keep plugging along while they trip me up at every opportunity. Time to paint. I don't need a computer for that.

Nothing from The Word Man today but he did get a kick out of a great funny I saw about artists by Pablo Picasso. Art critics look at art and talk about design, color, texture, and meaning. When artists get together to talk about art they talk about the best place to get cheap turpentine. Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Mourning a Friend

I received some bad news a few days ago. A great friend, teacher, and excellent artist found out she had cancer throughout her body and just had a few days to live. She and her wonderful husband had recently moved to Williamsburg to be near her son and were awaiting the birth of their first grand child. Her daughter-in-law was due so a decision was made to induce labor so she could see the baby before she passed. She was able to see the baby and say, "I'm a grandmother!". She passed yesterday evening and we will all miss her.

Nothing funny today. Clyde and I are both saddened by the loss of Jeannie Albertson Fender. We have been talking about her life and her husband Richard and the trip to Paris I took with her and two other friends a while back. When we returned we took a short trip to my parent's house in McLean, VA and had a nice time. It is sad to think that out of that group that chatted and had refreshments, only two of us are left.

My Dad came home early from the office to see us. He already knew Patty but he had never met Jeannie. He was such an outgoing gregarious guy that he gave them both a kiss on their cheeks. Jeannie was so pleased she said, "I want another one!". Dad give her another one and then we had a great talk about Paris. I went on a number of other trips and outings with Jeannie. I am so sorry she is gone.

I am very excited about my new wildflower painting! I love to work with all the textures and colors in field of beautiful flowers! This one has white and magenta flowers and I am looking forward to the next stage. I am pleased with the last one and will do a few more before I move on to something else. I may do some expressive still lifes. I do not know the meaning of the phrase artist's block. I just know there are never enough hours in the day for all that I want to do and I had better get some housework done before I start choking on the dust.

Yesterday I was winding something up in the kitchen and it fell apart. I complained to Clyde.

Why do so many things fall apart when I wind them?

You mean like my brain?

How do you wind up your brain?

The real question is how did I wind up with a brain.

Love it! This is what happens when you marry a writer. Lots of goofy comments to laugh at.

One of the members of our church has a problem with sugar. According to the tests he has had, sugar is affecting his memory. I didn't know that could be ascertained. Anyway, he is addicted to sugar like me. I tried twice to give it up and I am not trying again.

I told him there should be a group called Sugar Anonymous for us.

When I mentioned that to Clyde he agreed and said they should serve cookies at the meetings.

Sugar free cookies, of course.

Yeah, like that's going to happen.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Trying to Smile and That ought to do it...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I have been dragging for the last few days. It is so hard to lose a parent, especially a mother that was so supportive of what I do. So many kids are discouraged from becoming artists due to the financial considerations but I am glad my mother always encouraged me and I know she honestly liked my work. She was incapable of lying and if she did not like my work she would have said so in a polite way.

She was also thrilled that I took up the piano and am now paid to play. She said my grandmother that attended Peabody Conservatory would be so proud. Artists and musicians tend to run in families. I am glad I was born into one of those families.
I have worked very hard at both my painting and piano skills but I do think some people are born with a natural artistic aptitude that has to be developed.

Just a short blog before I head home to visit family for a funeral. I am going to go off the grid for a few days as we mourn our wonderful mother. I have posted two beach paintings in her honor as I know she loved the shore, especially the North Carolina shore. Cheers to everyone in this cold weather.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Nothing from the Word Man today but I did see something on Facebook that I knew he would like. He has a business page but is too much of a curmudgeon to have a personal page.

The joke was, I don't think Facebook has taught the lame to walk but it has caused the dumb to speak.

No offense to anyone that loves Facebook! Just thought it was a good funnie!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Smiling again and Dishes will Fly...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


The patron for my latest commission came by yesterday and was very pleased with the painting and also with many of my other paintings. He is interested in bringing his wife by and selecting others. He also has some reverse glass paintings that he would like me to restore. Great visit with a great patron! He brought a friend that works with him in his business and he had many compliments on my work! I don't have the painting on my website for prints yet but it will be there soon. I am officially cheered up and looking forward to Line Dance class today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I had so much to do that I just didn't want to get the evening dishes done. I had already done dishes earlier and many other things so I just stared at them. I told Clyde that even though it was freezing outside he would have to put up with a few minutes of cold while I heaved the dishes out the front door.

A cat may try to lick one and get it's tongue stuck.

That is a chance I will have to take. Maybe I will hit a few of those ground hogs that converge on our property.

Not a chance. They are hibernating under the shed next door and laughing about the times they have eaten all our apples.

Well, put on your sweater because here I go! The dishes will fly!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Blue and Trying to Cheer up...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am in a very bad mood today. Most of the time I am an up person which is contrary to what many people think about artists, but today I am, as Clyde would say, lower than a snake's belly. We have to deal with a decades old problem that can be awful at times and today is one of those days. I am trying to cheer up but it is difficult.

We have been working for months on a new strategy to see if there is help for this problem but the latest effort did not work out. Oh well. We are well. We have a roof over our heads and do not want for food or material things so I will cheer up. We all get down at times. I am glad that I don't get down that much.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have always been fascinated by marine life, especially sharks, so I was pleased to see footage of the recently discovered huge twenty foot white shark. Many people don't know that most species of sharks are not interested in eating people but they sometimes take exploratory bites and then spit the person out. Clyde was amazed that in the footage people were swimming rather near the shark.

That shark certainly isn't Jaws.

Why are they swimming that near the shark?

I don't know but the shark doesn't seem to be interested in them.

They just fed it an elephant. That's why.

Ha ha. I doubt that very much.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is About done with Commission and How do you think you drink it...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Well, I have learned to be more careful with commissions with letters. I thought the garage that was also owned by the Roanoke family that owned the store I made a painting of was named after them. In the photograph I could just make out 9th Street Garage but I thought that was the name it is today.

Whoops! Oh well, I covered over their name and corrected the sign. The painting would be gone if it were not for that error. Live and learn! Next time I will make sure I have it right before I do brush lettering which is very hard especially on such a small scale. Anyway, I am looking forward to starting some new paintings!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
As I have mentioned before Clyde read the encyclopedias when he was young and I don't think he has forgotten much if any of what he read so when two people were talking about moon shine on TV he was, of course, correcting them. Here is how the conversation went.

TV moderators - Most people do not know that moon shine originated in Pennsylvania!

Clyde - Scotland.

After a number of other comments one of the moderators asked this. What I want to know is how do you drink moon shine?

Clyde's exasperated response - Shove it up your nostrils. How do you think you drink it?

Good thing he was not really part of the conversation.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Tired and Why a Hippopotamus

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Not in the best mood today. Usually Mondays are like any other day to me since I haven't figured out how to stop working all the time. I can't even watch TV without doing something with my hands. I don't really care much about my nails but the cuticles sure do want to cover them so I usually try pushing them back and I always do my home yoga to TV.

Anyway, it sure is bleak and cold out there and I have too much to do. I finished my current commission and will put it in the frame when it is completely dry so that is something to cheer about but I can't seem to get a cheer going to day. Oh well, complaining never gets any one any where. Someone will always complain louder so I need to cheer up and get back to work.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Clyde does a lot of channel surfing and many times when I come into the room he doesn't know what he is watching. Yesterday when I entered the room there was a big hippopotamus on the screen.

What are you watching?

A self portrait.

How in the world are you like a hippopotamus?

Mean and grouchy.

Time to go back to the studio. Nothing weird in there, except my artwork.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

We are waiting for the snow to fall and I am trying to get a lot of work done. I keep saying I will put on my boots and walk in it like I did when I was young. In so many ways I never grew up and I like it that way. I have been a responsible adult but I still love all the things I loved when I was a kid. I keep getting under the pile so I don't do all those things but I will get out there this time! I have always said if we have to have winter then we need some snow. It is beautiful!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Well, we finally got Clyde's phone set up. We waited so long tracfone sent us a message asking us to reconnect and get bonus minutes. His phone is just like mine but because of the identification system on his email we had problems getting through the instructions. Anyway, Clyde has some choice comments to make about it.

I left the room and heard a very loud yell. It had slipped out of his pocket and took a nasty fall. Fortunately, it was not damaged. Yesterday we were watching a movie that had a cell phone noise go off during a scene.

Clyde said the sound of a cell phone makes him want to put up his dukes and fight. He really hates cell phones but like I said in another blog, those birds on Rocky Knob are not going to call me. He must have a phone, like it or not.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Far from the Computer and Fish don

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Well, I made it to Yoga and Line Dance and now I am back in the new "Smoking" position in front of the computer. I don't smoke but I have heard that sitting is the new smoking. That is kind of a weird phrase. I don't think sitting here will give me cancer but it sure isn't good for my muscles. I do think the radiation is a problem if people are right up against the screen.

I have read that everyone should be 19" away from the screen and I am about two feet. I am definitely a low risk person. The only way I would jump out of a plane is if someone pushed me to save my life. I stay away from planes as much as possible.

Tomorrow I will put the finishing touches on my current commission. I think it turned out well and the patron is very happy!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Clyde and I are still catching up on the great show Married with Children and I am still accusing him of writing it and putting the money in a Swiss bank account.

Now he says it was lost in the ship wreck.

Ship wreck? Why aren't you just using the internet.

You know how I hate the internet. I put it in big bags and the fish got it in the wreck.

Fish don't eat money.

Yeah? Then why did that sharp bite my butt while the others swam through the money. You should have seen that octopus play with the coins. You would have thought you were in Las Vegas.

Wow. What a fish story.

Oh well. All I know is that show at times practically asphyxiates me just like Clyde does. He may not have written it but he certainly has the same sense of humor.

I don't usually write a to do list. I try to keep it all in my head but yesterday I did write one. If I have an appointment I have to hang a note from the entrance to the kitchen so I see if every time I go in there which is quite often. If I don't do that I will miss appointments.

I sent a file of my latest commission to the patron and he said he loved it! Commissions are tricky but I have had great success with them. I still have to work on the lettering and some fine tuning. Check it out below!

Anyway, I have quite a Monday list so I had better get to everything. Cheers on a grueling Monday!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I stay out of conversations on politics, especially these days. The country is so divided on how well the present administration is handling things that I would rather not get into an argument. I am not giving my opinion on Trump here but I did see a very funny comment on Facebook about the wall. I don't mean to offend anyone.

The comment was that most immigrants enter the country on airplanes. Don't tell Trump. He will want to build a roof.

I mentioned that to Clyde and he said he didn't believe the immigrants were hitching rides on airplanes. They would have to have the money for it.

Anyway, I thought it was a fun joke!

I am so pleased to sell a wall art print of Mabry Mill in Fall to a great Texas patron! This is one of my favorite fall paintings of this beautiful sight in The Meadows of Dan.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have been catching up on the great TV sitcom Married with Children. I was too busy to watch TV when it was on and didn't know what a hilarious show it is! The actors are terrific and the writers are fantastic!

The humor, especially the barbs that come out of Al's mouth, are so like Clyde's humor that I accused him of writing it and hiding the money in a Swiss bank account.

Yeah, and look at those pigs flying by the window and don't wait for me while I take a very expensive cruise around the world.

Tell me that isn't something Al would say! You know it is!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching her Language and Keep it in Spirit Only...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I actually worked on a painting, did computer work, went to yoga class, went to Line Dance class, practiced the church piano for Sunday and fixed dinner. House is a mess and I did a load of dishes before and after dinner. I wonder why I am tired? I wish I were on a beach where the sun is shining.
Still a lot to do.

The trick is to do it without cussing. I find it is hard to watch one's language when haste makes waste and the kitchen demons are after me. I know they are in there. I am clumsy but some things fall without my help.
LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Last night we were watching a PBS program on Foxes and at one point in the show the foxes were on a cliff and there were whales below.

I love to look at whales! I want to see a whale.

I just look in a mirror.

You lost thirty pounds and have kept it off for a year. I can wrap my arms around you twice!

Ok, I have been lazy about keeping up the blubber but in spirit I am still waddling around.

Keep it in spirit only.

New Years Eve! Time for resolutions or, as I saw on Facebook - the to do list for the first week of January. Well, I don't really make any resolutions. I just keep on trying to improve. I have some ideas for more art promotion that I hope will be helpful. Too much to do to pick out certain tasks for resolutions.

I am ending the year on a nice note! Sold another print of Memphis Lights to a great Tennessee patron! This Skyline Beauty painting is certainly very popular!So I look forward to 2019 and hope it is a great one very all of us. Happy New Year!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Yesterday Clyde noticed a real nice colorful hat at a store in Christmas colors. He was thinking of buying it when he noticed what the design was. He pointed it out to me and I realized the red and green motiff was of marijauna leaves.

I said I guess that hat is for people that want to have a Hempy Christmas.
Clyde added and a Hempy Hemp New Year!

Not going to buy one. I am crazy enough without wearing something that will make people think I am a pot head.

I actually got out to a movie today and got away from this computer! That was great! We saw Aquaman. I am not real big on super hero films but this one was especially fun for me since I love to watch marine life and I love all the fascinating special effects in these movies. There certainly were a lot of great white sharks. I got a lot of my work done this morning so I was glad to see a movie!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Today I needed to make two prints and, as usual, my printer booped and beeped for such a long time. All of our printers have been that way. Sometimes they print something right when I turn it on and other times it boops and beeps. I told Clyde I could write my memoirs and be done before I got a print off of this computer. He says he will not write any memoirs. It is all in his poetry.

Oh well, the printer will never be on fire like the one below, not unless I light a match.

Christmas was great! Always love to see relatives! We made it down to Clyde's house without any spills of the food we brought. His mother was so grateful that we provided the dinner. She can't manage it anymore but she is cheerful as always and doing the best she can. I am so glad she has many friends and relatives nearby to help out. She is a great lady! Time to get back full force on all my art and computer work. So much to do! I am almost finished with the commission of Murray's Store in Roanoke. Still waiting on the lettering that is not very visible now that it is being used for storage. I hope everyone had a great Holiday! It has been so cold lately that I wish I were the lady in the painting!

I can't believe I forgot to do my yoga last night. I take class twice a week but I try to do a shorter session every day. I was so tired I just went to bed. As I have said before I love what yoga does for me but I don't really like it.

I told Clyde that sometimes the teacher makes us hold Downward Facing Dog so long I want to start barking. He didn't have anything to add. I don't think I am going to get him to take class. Oh well. I better get my mat and head on over there.

Not much to say today. I wrapped my last present and am trying to get other things done.

My commission is in a good place right now. I am waiting on a little more information about the store I am painting before I can get back to it. I think the patron is waiting until after Christmas which is a good idea.

I am anxious to get it done. Lots of ideas for abstracts and some ideas for more wildflower paintings. I am in the mood to work in oils and acrylics right now.

Anyway, the computer rules so I need to get to work. Hope everyone has a great Holiday!

I am pleased with my first painting in my new series, Skyline Beauty. I have painted many Blue Ridge Mountain Skylines and will continue to paint them but this series gives me a chance to do some creative things with buildings.

I have always been fascinated by architecture. It is the slowest artform to change so it is a great visiual experience that connects us with our past while we enjoy it every day.

Thursday is run around day but there has to be more to my life than my painting so Yoga this morning and Line Dancing Class this afternoon! Good to get away but it is hard to get all the computer work done.

The latest layer of my commission is drying so I can get back to it tomorrow.

Still a few things to do before Christmas and I will be bringing the dinner down to my Mother-in-law's house. I brought too much for Thanksgiving but I would rather have too much than not enough.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I tell Clyde about the funny thing he said that I put into my blog. He usually reads it later. I told him what he said about the Frosty the Snow man statue in Radford- that he may be smiling, but when no one is looking he ducks behind a bush for a cigarette. Of course, he had something else to add.

He isn't just frowning about needing a cigarette. He is worried about climate change and is looking to buy an iceberg before they are gone.

Yikes! Maybe we should pay Frosty to stand there. LOL!

I am looking forward to getting back to some wild flower paintings after I finish my latest commission. It is coming along but the drying time for each layer has been longer than usual. I hope I can get back to it soon. I need to get out some acrylics for some abstracts but I just can't seem to get it together this time of year. I am still trying to out run Santa. Not much time left and I keep finding something I need to do.
Gee, I wonder if I am the only one complaining about Holiday stress?

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

In our little city there is a smiling Frosty the Snowman across from the bridge that people enter Radford from Fairlawn. It is looks real good there. When I pointed it out to Clyde the other day and remarked on how happy it looked he, of course, had a goofy comment.

Sure, it is smiling now, but when no one is looking it ducks behind a bush and smokes a cigarette.

Frosty wouldn't do that.

How do you know? No one is paying him to stand there and smile. I'll be he frowns big time behind the bush.
Another wacko comment from my curmudgeon.

Frosty may not smoke a cigarette behind a bush but I'll bet he would throw a snowball at Clyde if he got the chance.

Well, the back roads are not clear so we are going to take the interstate. We both hate the interstate but that is our only option. I have only been to one other winter wedding and it was beautiful! Time to get ready! All my artwork will just have to wait until way later today. Signing off from the internet.

Now that is something different!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have a lot of forms to fill out that are really irritating. We take turns getting them in. Clyde has one right now that may require him to check with an official that works with this sort of thing. Unfortunately, this clerical worker has to travel a lot and is hard to reach.

I mentioned that he would probably have to get help from that official and he said trying to get in touch with her is like trying to find a pink elephant when you aren't drunk.

Don't see any pink elephants out there and since we are tea totalers I don't expect to find one.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Running around in circles today. So much to do! I still have some Christmas shopping to do and Yoga class and Line Dancing class are today. I will be playing the piano this Sunday for church so I have to go over and get used to an electric piano with action that is three times slower than my great Jesse French and sons upright.

Also, the paint on the third layer of my latest commission is about dry so I hope to get to that today, too. I hope all the people in Dallas that keep looking at my favorite beach painting, Rehoboth Beach houses are planning to buy a print. I sold that one years ago to a VA patron. It is a very popular one for prints.

Anyway, time to run out the door!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell More Beach Prints and Just out of Reach...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am very pleased to sell two more prints! One of them was of my most popular beach photographs to a great South Carolina patron and the other one was of a very popular Pawleys Island painting to a great New Hampshire patron! Both of these prints were for Christmas ornaments that can only be bought on Zazzle.

There are a lot of wall art prints and prints on household items and clothes on my Pixels site but, so far, no ornaments. Be sure to check out New River Artist on Zazzle!

Still working away on my latest commission and I am pleased with the progress. Because of the drying time of each layer I don't think I can have it ready for Christmas prints which would have been nice for the patron's family but oils just can't be rushed.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

My curmudgeon hubby is at it again. There was another Fix -Your- Back- With -This -Device commercial on last night we had not seen before. One of the buyers said after he used the device he took the first steps without a cane he had taken in a long time.

Clyde said that was because there was a pay check for being on the commercial just out of reach. He had to get there.

A little tequila would also help.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Trying to Relax and Please Add those Minutes...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am trying hard to avoid work today which is a laugh. I have already completed the first stage of my latest commission, two loads of dishes, and some cleaning up. Workaholics have a hard time relaxing. I have noticed that when I do watch TV for about twenty minutes I am doing something with my hands the whole time I am watching the DVD. I have tried to stay perfectly still but I can't do it. Oh well. Better to have too much to do then nothing at all. I am never bored.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I grew up during a time period when people could not put their phones in their pockets. We managed to live without a cell phone for a long time and then realized they were necessary. I don't think there are many public phones these days. I have to have one for my Art business and Clyde has one because he should have one. Those birds are not going to call me from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

No one could ever accuse us of zoning out and staring at a phone screen. To give you an idea of how out of date we are, I bought Clyde a new phone weeks ago and he still has not transferred the minutes from his old broken phone to the new one.

Yesterday I suggested he do that before he is dead. Still hasn't happened. Maybe in a few days, weeks, years...
