Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back and Ask the Bear...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back and Ask the Bear...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist




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 is Pleased to Begin New Youtube and Please Vote for My work

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!

I am so pleased to be working on a new Blue Ridge painting!  I was going to use it for a demo Youtube but I don't think it would work out that well as a video so I am going to try another approach.  Still, I have a great start on it in the first layer and will get back to is as soon as I can.

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.

I am real pleased with  my latest Center of my Mind painting!  I don't have a file of it yet but I will get one soon.  I actually got away from the computer today and did some Yoga on a dock right next to Claytor Lake with my teacher and some other class mates!  Then we had a great lunch and now I am back in front of this screen. 

So good to get away!

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

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 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

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.

Such beautiful weather!  This must be what it is like in Hawaii!  I still want hotter swimming weather but this will certainly do for now! 

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!

The others stayed in the first stage but I think I am going to change this one quite a bit.  Prints of the first stage will be available but I want to try something different with this one.  I hope it works out!

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

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

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

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 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. 

He is always good for a laugh!  Cheers everybody!  Hope you have  a great weekend!

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking out the Window

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy with Current Painting and Not changing the lock...

Blue Ridge Parkway


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!

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
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 is Looking for the Right Button and I am not Buying that One...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


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.

Looking forward to a wedding today! A neice on Clyde's side will be taking that big step this afternoon. The church is an hour away so we said we would come if the roads are clear. 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.

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 is Counting the Minutes and The Fuse is lit...

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


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...

Thursdays are difficult. Yoga in the morning and Dance Class in the afternoon. I don't really like Yoga but it sure likes me. I do like Line Dancing and will be real glad when the new class starts in Radford so I don't have to travel to Blacksburg. I need to get the next file of my latest commission to the patron soon. He was hoping I could finish the painting before Christmas, but that is unlikely due to the drying time of each layer. Anyway, time to get this published and get to class.
Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am still having trouble with an itchy back. It doesn't matter how warm or cold the weather is there is one spot that itches all the time. The dermatologist said the skin was dry there and that might be the problem. Well, lotion doesn't help.

I asked Clyde why does this one spot itch all the time? He said it is because you can't reach it and your back is laughing at you. But I have a back scratcher and I rake it every night. Yes, but you can't carry that around with you all the time so your back has the last laugh.

Argh!

I was beginning to think Garfield is right about Mondays in spite of the fact that we workaholics don't see any difference in the days, when I saw a great announcement from the company that handles most of my print options!

For the first time Fine Art America is offering a 25% discount on wall art TODAY ONLY!!! Since I mostly sell original paintings and wall art prints I wanted to be sure to mention this!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Last night Clyde was so pleased to get a phone call cancelling a meeting today. They always last so long and are after a hard days work.
Of course, that did not stop me from teasing him.

But you love meetings!

Oh yes. I have been thinking of holding a meeting to start more meetings on the days I don't have meetings.

Yes, and you could elect chairmen for those meetings and chairmen to start new meetings so you and they can really get the meeting ball rolling.

I think, as Snoopy once said, my mind reels with sarcastic comments.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so pleased that my favorite abstract painting, Gentle Fall, has a great Virginia home! There is a rather mystical look to the impasto surface of this work, hence the title. I prefer to work from representational subject matter but I also like paintings that are like music without words and am proud of my efforts.

I have included another favorite below Gentle Fall. As always, wall art prints and prints on just about anything including clothes are available. Be sure to check out the address under each painting to see all the possibilities to the right!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Many times I have mentioned how I try to eat organic food as much as possible. A lot of people think some of our health problems may be coming from pesticides and I think we are better off without pesticides whenever possible.

Anyway, Clyde thinks some of the people selling organic food may be taking it a little too far. I don't agree but he thinks it won't be long before pet owners can buy organic chew toys for puppies.

Okay, that might be a little over board.

Well, I was there, wasn't I?

No, you are not the nightmare I woke up with. This was after you left for work.

Oh.

We decided to get a separation and some dude found me an apartment to live in but he assumed I wanted him to live there, too! I sent him packing and then I woke up.

Wishful thinking?

No, I said it was a nightmare you boob!

Clyde has a lot of talents but singing is not one of them. He plays the guitar very well but just can't hit the notes in a song very well.

Blue Ridge Parkway is doing the Thanksgiving thing and Brain Dead...

Blue Ridge Parkway is doing the Thanksgiving thing and Brain Dead...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Getting ready for Thanksgiving with my husband's family. Usually I just bring a desert but this time I am bringing everything. My mother-in-law is not up to it this year. It is about time she took a break and I am bringing a lot of stuff that I hope doesn't come back home to me.

Since several family members don't like turkey so I am bringing turkey and ham and a lot of other traditional dishes. Looking forward to seeing everybody and I am not setting my scale back ten pounds as is advised on Facebook. I just won't step on it for a few days. It doesn't matter that much. I don't stuff myself at holiday meals. I love to eat and eating too much ruins the experience for me.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I sent Clyde on a art supplies mission the other day. The best store for art supplies in this area is in Blacksburg where he works. I wrote down what I needed very carefully but I explained the brush I needed several times. I needed a no. 4 round ox hair oil paint brush, not a flat one.

I told him several times there are flat ones and there are round ones.

Yes, and there is partial brain dead and completely brain dead. I am the latter.

Ha ha. You can do it. Just think of the frown on my face if you get it wrong.

Okay. Now I have incentive. I won't get it wrong.

That's the spirit!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Claiming an early Victory and Flying Rattles....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


My latest painting is thankfully past the driving-me-crazy stage and I am starting to see how it will work out. Unless readers of this post paint, I am sure no one knows what I am talking about. That's okay. There are a lot of things I don't understand but have great respect for. Physics is one of those things. Chemistry is another. Actually I am not well versed in Science at all.

I know I use a lot of Math that can't really be put into a formula except for Linear Perspective so I don't think I am as ignorant of that science as I am of the others. I really love the arts. If I had more time I would study other things, especially History. I think learning really is it's own reward. I believe if people studied more we could solve a lot of problems.

Anyone listening to me? I hope so.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
Last Thursday I braved the icy roads that were mostly slush to go to Yoga class. I should have know it would be closed. When I got home, I checked the website and the later class was still on so I went out again an hour later with my mat in the pouring rain. Of course, it was closed. Instead of the website I should have checked my phone that had a message that it was called off due to weather.

The next class was on Friday but it was a class for Moms and their babies. I told Clyde they probably would not want me without a baby.

Yeah, the mother's might throw one at you.

That's ridiculous. The baby might get hurt.

You're right. The babies would throw bottles and rattles at you.

I stayed home.

Running around in circles today. Too much to do. I think I will try to get some dishes help today from the guys. Working all morning and the dirty dishes are piling up with reinforcements on the way for lunch soon. I have to get work on my latest wildflower painting that is at the driving- me -crazy stage and prepare a hardboard panel for a commission I need to get to very soon.

I told the patron I would have the first layer file for him in a few days so he can decide if I should make any changes before I go ahead with all the other layers. Anyone out there that thinks artists just play around with paint should know you couldn't be more wrong, with all due respect.
Back to the computer chores.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I guess it is the abrupt change in weather but I am waking up with a headache. I googled this problem and didn't see anything to be worried about. I am not a hypochondriac but I do worry about health. Hypochondriacs don't really want to get well from their imaginary illnesses. They just want sympathy. I just worry about serious problems.

Anyway, I mentioned to Clyde my morning headache and he said just look to your left. Ha ha. I told him the headache goes away when I get up and, of course, he said that was because he had left for work.

I think I may have mentioned this before but I am not going to look through all my blogs to find out.

Cheers!

Wow! Life is so different in the car these days. I can remember the days when no one talked on the phone. Now people are either on the phone or talking to their car with blue tooth. This morning while I was driving through a parking lot I had a call I had been waiting for regarding a commission.

Since I can't walk and chew gum at the same time I pulled over at an awkward angle where there was only one empty car so I could answer it. Of course, while I was in the midst of the conversation the driver came out to pull out and I tried real hard to angle my car better so they would not have a problem.

When I hung up and started to back up my car acted like it was in neutral so I thought I had foolishly pulled up on the curb.
Well, it acted like it was in neutral because it was in neutral. Early morning adventures for a sleepy lady. I now have the commission and my car works just fine.

Glad to get back to the studio to work on the second stage of Wildflower Swirl!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Don't have anything from The Word Man today. We have been discussing Thanksgiving. We always go down to his Mom's house and celebrate with a lot of relatives. This year my mother-in-law is not up to it so I am going to try to bring Thanksgiving to her.

I am not much of a cook so that is like asking asking a turkey to come up with something which brings me to a great cartoon I just saw of a turkey with a groucho like mask on and a sign that said I am not a turkey!

I wish I could put on a mask and hold up a sign that says I am not a cook. Oh well, I will figure out something but I'll bet the Kroger Deli will have a lot to do with it!

Last night we were watching the hilarious Married with Children re-run! What a funny show. Clyde likes to flip back and forth between Star Trek and other shows during commercials.

Just for fun and in the hopes of getting a funny from him I asked him if he could be a TV celebrity, which one would he choose? Captain Kangaroo. Why? He is off the air.

Oh well. I tried. I think I will go watch Kangaroo Jack. If you haven't seen it, be sure to get it! Great movie!

Well, we voted , and, as usual, we were happy about some results and unhappy about others. I'm sure that pretty much sums up everyone's viewpoint. All day long I saw pictures of people with the I voted sticker and we were given stickers. I knew Clyde would not put one on. Neither did I. Maybe we should be that is just not for us.

I teased Clyde with, "Aren't you going to put on your sticker?"

No, if I did it would be on my beard and would say My beard voted but I stayed home.

Okay, that is a really weird one from my Curmudgeon guy but I like it!

Before we started I told him I didn't want the patron to see such a messy dump.

Well, I won't be here.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and puns go together like argh and groan! Actually I love them. I wish everybody did. Anyway here we go again.

Clyde and I were watching TV and he began to massage my calf.

Thank you! My calves are always tight.

Maybe you should give them some hay to make them happy. They won't pay you, though, since they are tight.

Why did I marry you? I don't watch birds.

One of the world's great unsolved mysteries.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Starting New Wildflower painting and Look out for Zombies...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am looking forward to painting today! I prepared the hardboard yesterday and now I can get started on another wildflower painting. I love to work with zillions of colors and nuances of colors and wildflower paintings are great for that. Constant change of color and texture as I load up the board. Today will just be the first layer and a lot of composition decisions and then things will really get going in a few days. Love oil paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Low on humor right now. Clyde is not asphyxiating me lately. I do hope that I either die with a paint brush in my hand or a laugh.

I did see something about calendars that I thought was funny. Of course, you have to like puns or you will groan big time. Clyde thought it was good.
Did you hear about the crooks that stole a calendar? They both got six months.

Okay, don't groan too loud. It is Halloween and you don't want the neighbors to think you are being attacked by a zombie.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I don't know of a lot to do on my blog today. I know what I don't want to do which is what I just did. I completely modified my last post like I always do and then realized I was working on the last one and not the new one. I foolishly left that one so it would not change but forgot to copy my changes so I have to start all over again. Arghhhh! Since I am a workaholic I don't usually have the Monday blahs but I am this time. Hope the rest of the day is better.

Need to get into the studio. There is no computer there.

Call it a Demacan or a Republicrat.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell a print of Memphis Spin and Internet eyes...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I actually got out and danced last night! That was great! I really do spend so much time at home these days that getting away is such a nice experience. Been too busy with restoring a frame and postal stuff to paint so I want to get right to that.

I started another Skyline Beauty painting of Memphis TN with a limited palette for a change of pace. The first stage is getting a lot of hits! I am pleased that my abstract works are appreciated. I prefer working from images of this beautiful region but I also like to paint different things in a more expressive style. It is all good to me!

Glad to sell a print of one of my more recent ones, Memphis Spin to a great AR patron! Though I mostly sell original paintings and wall art prints, this one is on a bag. Be sure to click on the print options to the left of the listing to see all the possibilities!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am have thinking about how tricky and dangerous the internet is and then I saw this cute illustration of a many eyed octopus that makes me think of it. In some ways the internet is like a many eyed monster.

Clyde said to think about the word. It is a net and what do you get with a net?

Fish?

Suckers. There are all kinds of fish with suckers.

I guess we all have to try not to be a sucker fish.

Wow. That is a weird one from the Word Man.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another print of Fall on the New River and Monkeys are Smarter than that....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Fall on the New River certainly is a popular painting! Another print of it was bought today by a great Virginia patron. A great North Carolina patron owns the original. Check out the print possibilities below the picture of it. This certainly has been a busy day.

I am communicating with a patron who is interested in a commission which I am glad to do. I had so many online things I wanted to do today but the day is about shot and I didn't get to much. Oh well. I do the best I can as the days slip right out of my fingers. I am sure I am not alone in that regard.

Cheers to me and everyone else!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I still have not ordered Clyde's Smart Phone. I told him I wanted him to find some plain pans that won't poison us and he hasn't done that yet so we are even.

I was thinking about what he said last time about how hard it will be for us to get a new phone going. He said it would be like two monkeys in a tree trying to open a banana with a coconut. Well, I think two monkeys in a tree would be smarter than that.

He said I was right. One of them would eat the banana and clunk the other one over the head with the coconut to open it. That sounds more like it!

LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Oh no! Clyde wants to get a new phone. Panic in the streets or at least in our house! When I bought my smart phone that is way smarter than me neither one of us could get it going so we had to talk to someone with a thick accent only to find out it was defective. We sent it back and got one we finally managed to get going. So far so good. I have not heaved it out the window.

Clyde is thinking of getting one like mine so the nightmare will begin again. He says it will be like two monkeys in a tree trying to open a coconut with a banana!

Clyde is taking a break from mirror jokes to get back to age jokes. He says he is so old that he kicked a mastodon in the butt and then pointed to another one and they battled it out.

Then the others joined in for a battle royale.

Now you know why they are extinct.

As I have said before Clyde calls me to make sure I get up. I like to come up with funny answers. My favorite has been, "Who dat?" The other day I
used that one and he said Crazy.

Crazy? Why are you calling me?

I thought this was Dial a Nut.

Right people but wrong place.

I like that one. I think I will answer, Dial a Nut for a while.

I think we both might be a few chips short of a whole cookie.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Doing Fast Yoga and You do not want to glow in the dark...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I have been doing what could be passed for fast yoga today. So much of the poses we take when we do housework are the same as yoga poses. The difference is I am not breathing slowly when I do table top to clean the bathroom floor and my downward dogs to pick up stuff on the kitchen floor are pretty quick.

I am so pleased that my arms have gotten a lot stronger and I can hold the downward dog pose for a very long time which is what the teacher requires us to do. I use to want to let out a dog yelp and get back to table top before my arms bent.

Anyway, now it is time to sit in front of the computer and get to all the sit down work I need to do. I really am a workaholic and sometimes I think I am on skid row, clicking and typing my fingers off.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Saturday night there is a old horror movie channel show on with a host that likes to make a lot of jokes about the movies. Last time he had a crazy advertisement for glow in the dark clothes. I asked Clyde if he would like a glow in the dark outfit.

No, then people that want to do me in could see me better.

Who would want to do that?

Don't you know why hunters are required to wear blaze orange?

So they don't get hit by a deer hunter.

No. It is blaze orange so a hunter that sees you can blaze away.

Ha ha. So no glow in the dark clothing for you.

Right.

Clyde doesn't like to hunt but his Dad lived to hunt so I thought this joke would be fun to put here!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased to Sell Two Suggestions Prints and Stick in the Mud...

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased to Sell Two Suggestions Prints and Stick in the Mud...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am so pleased to sell two prints from my Suggestions series to a great Va patron! This patron contacted me about looking at some originals, too. He recently bought a condominium on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. I will be pleased to have some of my work at that great location!

If you haven't checked out my Suggestions gallery on my website, please do! These are paintings that are only available in print form. Sometimes I like to just put paint on paper and look for images to show up and then I bring them out for a strong expressionistic effect. I use inexpensive acrylic paint and inexpensive paper for these paintings which is why I don't have them for sale but they are great in print form!

Most patrons buy them for wall art but they are available on clothes, computer items, beach items, and kitchen items. The two that were bought for wall art are Sunflower Burst and Wading. Wading that is picture above is one of my favorites from this series! The other one that sold is Sunflower Burst. Check them out in the Suggestions Gallery for print options!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have always had problems with popular phrases. I guess I am the stick in the mud that would have had no problem letting Latin die. We all know that if language does not change, it dies. Well, I always thought the use of the word "cool" was weird and didn't use it for most of my life.

Since it just won't go away I finally started to use it a few years ago. Like I said. I am a real stick in the mud. Do people use stick in the mud these days? Anyway, I am getting irritated with the phrase, it is what is it. I asked Clyde if it is what it is, what is it?

His response. If it is what it is it might be what it ain't. You have to think about that one but I like it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has some Twitter fun and Playing by Ear...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Once in a while a troll or whatever appears on my computer radar. Today I was asked to stop posting pictures in my tweets. I have had this ridiculous request before from this person. I am on twitter to promote my artwork so pictures are going to appear in people's feed.

If people don't like seeing my artwork they should not follow me so I told this person I had unfollowed him and he should unfollow me so he won't get anymore unwanted tweets.

He not only unfollowed me. He blocked me so I blocked him.
Enough of that nonsense!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde has been kindly putting up with a lot of piano playing these days. I am working on recording some pieces I love for two reasons. My mother, who plays much better than me, likes to hear me play so I will send her a CD. The other reason is my fingers are not going to be able to play forever. They are stiffer than when I was young and I want to preserve some of my playing, especially the piece I wrote.

Anyway, I don't have a music room so Clyde, the most diplomatic person I have ever known, never complains.

Anyway, I saw a cute joke about pianists. Why does the hare have his head on the piano keys? He is playing by ear! Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting with the Mouse again and That is Scary...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


No one can tell me a computer mouse is not alive. We bought a new one a while back because the one we had was doing crazy things. Cleaning it and changing the battery made no difference. The one we have now is doing those weird things right after cleaning it and a battery change. The reason I say it is alive is because it does all kinds of crazy things certain times of the day and then reverts to working perfectly.

I think it is protesting all the hours I am using it and letting me know when it wants to take a nap. I will end this with a LOL but I am not kidding, just trying to keep from hurling it out the window.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I love humor about the brain and if I could remember, there is a great old cartoon with an animal asking another animal, "Where do you get these brains?" You had to see it to get the humor but I think a lot of us would like to be able to purchase a great brain.

There was a great funny on Facebook the other day that I loved. A person is very concerned that a zombie is looking for brains to eat and walked right past him. Now that is an insult! Hope that does not happen to me!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Fighting with Email and Right to your Front door...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Computers, computers, computers. One screwy thing after another. I have learned a lot but if I were not marketing artwork on the net I would probably be the next thing to computer illiterate. Now my Gmail will not come in. It has not been in since last night which was very frustrating because I am communicating with a patron that is looking into buying Autumn Pond.

Fortunately there are great people to help. I asked some other artists and one said try a different browser. I did and now I can get into my gmail. I just looked up the term computer illiterate and had to laugh big time at the actual meaning. It refers to people that can't get the hang of a computer no matter how much you help them.

Ok, I may not have a doctorate in Computer Science like my brother but if I didn't know anything about computers I am sure I could learn. I think that term should just refer to ignorance of computers not complete lack of ability to use them.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have often said that it is a good thing that all the side effects of drugs are listed on commercials but now I am not so sure it is the best approach to educating the public.

The list is so long that more and more people might think they should not get immunizations since they can have side effects, too. I do not want to see polio or whooping cough come back.

Anyway, the other night there was a commercial that listed the most common sides effects of the drug that was advertised.

Clyde chimed in with, "The most common side effect is a coffin delivered right to your door that costs a whole lot more than this drug."

Enough said. LOL!

I spend so much time on the computer that Clyde said I need to get a t-shirt that says Computer Slave. I think he is right. I did a lot of work last night so I wouldn't have to do so much today but there is always a computer chore in my future. I can't get ahead but I do sneak away sometimes. It is beautiful outside so I will get out today. Here is a great joke about those of us that live on a computer. Love it!

Man says to his wife in bed. I don't get up to check my email at night. I have them forwarded to the people in my dreams and they read them to me.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having more Technology Problems and Swat that thing...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I know my camera has some years on it but why can't I put the name and number in Google and get instructions that I can use. I look up something I need help with and when I follow the instructions the selection that I need in the menu is not there. Are cameras updated without changing the precise name of it? I get so frustrated with all this stuff.

I still use Aperture because I finally figured it out and now I am told it is on the way out so if I do have a question it is almost impossible to find the answer. Youtube no longer has the stabilization feature or the color adjustment feature so now my videos will have a slight shake and the colors will be washed out.

It seems to me I should be able to make those adjustments with my camera but I can't figure it out. I will check the instruction manual that I got with the camera and hope I can find the answer there.

Of course, I have to find the manual. ARGH!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We are still swatting mosquitoes. The other night while Spock was trying to destroy a weird creature in a shuttle craft Clyde worked hard to kill a mosquito in our bedroom. I was the scout that kept losing it in the shadows and he was the warrior with the fly swatter.
Finally it landed where I could see it on a door and Clyde got it. We cheered and Clyde went to bed while I did some computer work.

It was going okay when I noticed something in my hair. Of course, it was another mosquito. I lunged at it as it flew away and then disappeared. Later, I was reading a book in the living room and one flew right by me.

I told Clyde the next day it must be a family of them all working together to get us. Yeah, a SUCKY family. I would say argh, but I love puns!

Saw a cute joke about a parent mosquito asking a young mosquito how his first flight went. Great! Everyone was clapping for me!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Still Working on New Website and The Mosquito Lunge...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


I am more than halfway through my new website on Wix! What a lot of work. I am one prolific artist and when it is done there will be a little over 400 originals available for purchase. I have been painting for more years then I care to admit and have sold a lot of work.

At this point I have originals and prints in 31 states and 6 countries other than the US. A lot of artists throw away the ones they don't sell but I can't do that. I have worked too hard to discard any of them. They are like children that I am determined to find homes for. Not all of them are framed.
When someone requests one of those I either get them framed or they have them framed.

Some of mine are professionally framed but most of them are in good but inexpensive frames that patrons either keep the work in or have the work framed to suit their needs.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Almost the end of September and we are still getting mosquito bites. I don't know how they are getting in but this morning one was hovering above me and I lunged for it. Of course it got away and Clyde spent some time chasing it in the computer room but lost sight of it.

Saw a cute joke about mosquitoes on the net. A vegetarian mosquito is attacking an orange. The caption is This blood orange really sucks.

I don't think there are any vegetarian mosquitoes around here, just big time blood suckers. I wish I had counted all the bites I had gotten the past few summers. I'll bet this summer was a record number.

Wow! Those ones I got on my hand last night really itch.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents new Memphis Tennessee painting and Teeth look Okay...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Well, I am back to my Skyline Beauty series! I really enjoy this series in acrylics. I love the way I can achieve a bunch of layers in one session due to the drying time of the paint. I used to think that was a major disadvantage of acrylics but now I think it is an advantage - at least an advantage for how I paint. I decided on another view of the Memphis TN skyline and am very pleased with the first stage.

I may just tweak it and have one listing but I will see what happens when I get back to it. I was starting with just the center area of the canvas for my Skyline Paintings and then filling it up in the second layer but this time I wanted to cover the whole canvas for the first stage. I will be painting one more Memphis painting and will probably have two layers that are quite different.

Wow! There certainly is a massive effort to convince everyone their teeth should be as white as a piece of tissue paper. Of course, there are lots of products to buy to achieve super white teeth. I don't think teeth are meant to be white as snow. I knew a girl that had teeth so white each one of them looked like a little flashlight.

Clyde said maybe people should just put a flashlight in their mouth. Then they wouldn't have to work so hard to get them white.

I think I will just brush and floss. They look okay to me.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell Prints of Pawleys Island Atmosphere and Fun with Star Trek...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell Prints of Pawleys Island Atmosphere and Fun with Star Trek...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


We are all glad to see the water go back to the New River! We certainly got by with minimal flooding. I am glad that I am all paid up on my Home Owners Insurance. Funny thing. Well, not that funny but definitely an age thing. I accidentally paid it twice and when I was going over my statement I discovered the error. I realize that last statement is strange to a lot of people, if not most people.

I know I can bank online but all this online stuff makes me nervous. I just don't think it is safe. I was rather surprised that the company cashed both checks. I called about it and the local representative said my computer listing has a refund. Why couldn't they just send back one of the checks?

Anyway, I need to be more careful but I am glad it has been a very long time since I made that sort of error. One time I put the amount for my credit card bill on the check for my phone bill. Of course, they issued me a refund.

I know I am not alone in saying this age thing is not fun. I just keep on thinking of the lady in her nineties that performs on a balance beam! Yes, we can keep going for a long time!

I am real pleased to sell some prints of the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere to a great Va patron! This time a box of greeting cards was bought! Don't forget that my prints are on a number of household items, stationary, clothes, and kitchen and computer accessories! All the options are at the right of the listing!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I look forward to watching Star Trek reruns with Clyde. They are on the hour before he goes to bed and I can usually goad him into saying something I can use here.

If Star Trek has 400 crew members, how come we only see a few in the bridge and the captain and senior officers only take a few crewmen with red shirts that usually get killed. Where are the others?

They are below playing badminton and complaining that this five year mission isn't getting them any lines for the show.

Love to watch Star Trek with you.

You are just here writing your blog.

No, you just wrote it. Thanks!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist just got Rain and What did He say about our Marriage...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist just got Rain and What did He say about our Marriage...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


We waited for some torrential rains but it looks like it did not happen here. Roanoke had some severe flooding but we just got wet. The people on the coast did not have to evacuate their homes but North Carolina sure got pummeled. Love the beach but definitely do not want to live there!

I made a mistake in my last blog on the Specials. They ended Thursday, not Friday. Senior moment. I looked up a chart that compares Alzheimers symptoms with regular old age symptoms and so far I am still on the right side of the chart. I am reading at night to try keep my mind together and I know playing the piano helps. I really need to get back to reading Spanish novels. You have to stay sharp to keep up a foreign language. I have forgotten some words and some grammar so I had better get back to it before I can only say hola. Our library has next to nothing in Spanish. I guess I need to see what I can get on Interlibrary loan.

Anyway, I am hanging in there and painting away! Here is the final stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Last time I wrote about the different times that Clyde and I go to bed due to our schedules. He is in bed at 9 so he can get up at 4. I stay up to 11:30 and get up at 7:30. Funny thing. Every night at 9 I have an overwhelming desire to go to sleep and then I start to wake up .

I told Clyde that the reason my body wants to go to sleep at 9 is because we are soul mates. He gagged and said we were more like a ship wreck without a ship.

Ha ha! I love to goad him. Wait, did he really say our marriage is like a ship wreck? Oh well. I asked for it. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Worried about Coming Storm and Fun with Star Trek...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Wow, my painting progress seems very unimportant in the light of the coming storm! It looks to be quite a devastating one. A local weatherman, Kevin Myatt, is so concerned he said we should pray! Never heard that before from a weatherman.

I am so glad we live in the mountains and on a hill. Hopefully our little home won't be knocked over or flooded. We have one very large tree out front. I hope it doesn't land on our house during the high winds.

Oh well, we are stocking up on extra food and water and I think I WILL pray.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

For some reason we do not understand, certain channels on our TV disappear and then others appear. Right now a station that we did not have is on and has Star Trek episodes every day. Even though I have seen most of the episodes multiple times and I am not that big of a fan, I like to watch it with Clyde because he usually has some fun comments. Last night we were watching one with the crew stuck on a planet because the transporter would not work.

They have shuttles. I have seen them many times. Why don't they use them rather than the transporter. Also, if they are stuck, why can't they send a shuttle down?

Oh Clyde. The shuttles were probably sent out and arrested for parking tickets. Then they were towed away by the Klingons.
I think that is as logical as a machine that can take people apart and then reassemble them elsewhere.

Spock probably would not agree with me.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Arm Wrestled it Down and Nut Case...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Arm Wrestled it Down and Nut Case...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



Well, I arm wrestled my latest painting down and now it is just a matter of finesse. I hope I don't have back problems the next time. It is never good for me to have to leave a painting for a while and then begin work again. I am really tired of the saying, Seize the day, but it does apply here.

I have to seize the paint brush since I am changing every day and if too much time elapses between painting sessions the painting starts to yell at me. I don't like being yelled at.

Anyway, I am very pleased with the end result and when I have finished the tweaks it will go on my website!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A while back I told Clyde I thought I was a little on the nutty side but I am a well functioning nut. No artist likes to rant that artists are not nuts more than me, but I do think I am a little off - at least according to others. I think if I were actually tested I would come up normal but I am definitely a non-conformist to say the least. I hate to shop for clothes. How many girls can say that? The stores are full of them.

I love to paint even though at times I have thoughts of opening a vein due to frustration. If I had time I would play the piano most of the day even though the music running through my head can be an excruciatingly difficult experience. I wish there were an off button.

Oh well. Clyde is out studying birds right now and some people call him nuts. If every one did what he does we would not have environmental problems.

Saw a great joke on the internet about mental illness.

A psychiatrist asks his patient that is lying on the sofa, "Is nut job hyphenated?"

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist wants to Escape and What is that is your beard...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



Sometimes I think I should just take a break from all my work and just relax. I used to despise shopping and still don't like it but these days it is a break. There are zillions of things I would do if I could talk myself out of computer work and artwork but I am driven to get my art out to people and that requires a lot of effort every day.

I did get to the lake a few times this summer and my hubby went with me! He is not much for swimming but birds and butterflies always show up so he is happy where ever he goes. He actually writes down data every single time he is out of the house. Now, that is dedication!

Anyway, I am hoping to make a lot of progress on my latest painting today. It started out good but I had to take such a long break from it that it is presenting problems right now.

Live to paint, love to paint, but it can be a real pain in the you know where at times.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Yesterday Clyde was about to leave the house with food in his beard.

You have food in your beard.

That's just my reserves.

I thought your reserves were the pieces you drop on your chest when you lie down.

Those are my auxiliary pieces.

Considering how we eat and the clothes we wear I guess people could say we are uncouth.

I lost my couth in my youth.

Argh! The Word Man strikes again.

You know this is going on the internet.

Painting is such a weird process. One minute you think a painting is coming along and will be done soon and then the painting starts talking to you and asks you about your current approach to it. I hate, hate, hate wasting paint and sometimes I hold back on my loaded paintings because of the cost of paint. The second stage has a strong impasto surface but I thought I still needed one more layer which I started a few days ago but now I am working in areas because I don't think I need to cover everything again.

Some areas are truly done and I don't want to mess them up. The third layer is always the hardest and I'll best most people reading this have no idea as to what I am talking about. Oh well, I know there are other artists that understand. Love what I do but it is not easy. I still have both ears. I refuse to let it drive me nuts although I think Van Gogh would have had mental problems despite his profession. It ran in his family.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The Bird Man is out doing his thing with our son. Last night he saw over 250 hawks from our back yard as some neighbor kids made fun of him and teased a dog. Clyde has endured insults about bird watching his whole life so the rude comments he receives just roll off his back. The time someone reported him because they thought he may have been a terrorist was not something he could ignore.

I admire his naturalist efforts and have learned a lot from him about our fragile environment. I am too antsy to spend all the hours he does studying birds but I think it is great and I am extremely impressed that he has uploaded over 20,000 sightings to ebird at Cornell University. I don't think ignorance is bliss but I do think a lot of Americans think it is. We need to shape up.

Saw a funny cartoon about today's Holiday.

Happy Labor Day! Now stuff your self with hotdogs like a good American!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I love movies! I get a lot of great ones from our library and netflix. I can hardly stand to watch TV with all the commercials. It usually takes me several days to watch one due to the fact that I have so much to do and am a workaholic. Hard for me to sit still for the whole movie.

Anyway, I highly recommend Permanent which is a very funny comedy about a young girl that ends up starting the school year with an awful permanent she can do nothing about.

There is a lot more to the movie and one line will live with me forever! I told it to Clyde and he agreed! A lady in therapy gives her definition of family.


A family is like a plant. You water it and hope you didn't get a weed. Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is looking forward to lake time and Not like the President

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I wanted to get back to my latest shore painting but I got sidetracked so I am going to get in there and at least clean off my palette so I can work tomorrow. The trick is how to paint, get all my computer work done, and still get to the lake to swim before the afternoon showers. I hope the rain will hold off so I can swim one more time before the lifeguards quit for the summer.

People are allowed to swim without them but I would rather have them there. I have only used my float once this summer and I am looking forward to spinning around in it one more time. I am a responsible adult but in many ways I never grew up and I highly recommend staying a kid and never losing the desire to have the same fun we had when we were little!

I have finished the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere! Getting a lot of hits on this stage as well as the first stage! Be sure to click on the link and see all the wall art prints and prints on just about anything to the right.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was adding some Skyline Beauty paintings to my new Independent website and updating them on my website connected to Fine Art America. As I added them to my new site I also let the revised listings go to social media sites.

A twitter friend saw one of my New York skyline paintings and thought it resembled Donald Trump's signature. That had never occurred to me so I looked up his signature and didn't see the resemblance so I tweeted that I had not intended the painting to look like his signature and couldn't see the resemblance myself.

I didn't think the friend that tweeted the comment meant any offense but she let me know she just thought the up and down motion of the brushwork looked like his signature.

Clyde said you should have asked the friend to buy it and then she could compare it up close with Trump's signature. What a shameless opportunist and I wish I had thought of that! LOL!

Can't think of much to say today except I finished the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere and am looking forward to the last stage. The first stage that is getting a lot of hits is in the video at the top of this post. I will post the second stage on my website connected with Fine Art America soon.

I am working hard to finish my independent website with Wix but it will take a long time. There is a lot to see already but a lot more needs to be added and then I need to learn how to promote it effectively.

I have also decided, for now, to just send out my newsletter from Fine Art America. I started one with another site because I thought the number of paintings that could be added on the Fine Art America one was too few. Either they have changed their format or I was not working it correctly. There is plenty of room so I will not use the other one that aggravates me no end. The computer really likes to burp and default big time with that site and I have had enough!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

You know you have been living with a Bird Watcher or Birder, as they say, for a very long time when you go looking for him when you see unusual birds on the internet. Lots of times people want an identification of an unusual species or an explanation of certain types of behavior so I ask The Bird Man and he groans he should be paid for his expertise but he always helps out.

Sometimes I wonder about all these Nature programs. Are there any other inhabitants of this planet that are carefully studying us, making reports, and trying to figure out our behaviors? I don't think so but I do love the cartoon with bird using binoculars!

Crows are very smart and have learned to adapt to the changes we have made in the environment so I am just waiting for one of them to fly off with Clyde's binoculars and start checking us out. Wonder what they would say about all the paintings I make.

Clyde said they have probably learned to read and they want him to hit the delete button on all those poems he writes. That would explain all the bird noise right outside the window.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching out for Scammers and Don't Blow it Up...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching out for Scammers and Don

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Selling artwork on line can be a very tricky thing. There are a lot of scammers out there and I have known of artists that were tricked out of a lot of money. I am very careful and haven't fallen for any schemes so far. One of the most popular one is the shipping scam. The fake buyer sends a check for an amount that includes a very high shipping fee. The artist is requested to cash the check and give the shipper the several thousand dollar fee to the carrier. Of course, the check is no good and the artist is out a lot of money and the artwork.

Right now a guy from another country is looking into buying one of my paintings. He seems legitimate but, as always, I make sure the check is good and the shipping fee is up to him. I didn't start painting yesterday. Been at this a long time. That reminds me. I need to check my credit score. I have not done that in a while.

The internet is great in many ways but it is also very dangerous. Crooks love it, too.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When I want to get a quip from Clyde I have learned the best place to get them is when he is watching TV. He usually has some fun comments for shows and commercials. I just have to remember to write them down. I always think I won't forget them but I do.

Last night we were watching a Magician's show and he was flipping the channels all over the TV because of the ridiculous number of commercial breaks. He said the real magic is the commercials. They make the magicians disappear.

That's for sure! One commercial that kept appearing over and over again was an advertisement for a beach vacation that has a song we have heard so many times Clyde said he liked looking at the pictures of the beach but the song made him want to blow up the TV. It is a nerve wracking ditty.

Love the beach but this commercial has got to go!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is up to her Elbows in Oil Paint and Pet Rock Opinions....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Soon I will be finished with the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere which is pictured in the first video above. It is coming along and it doesn't seem to be such an arm wrestling event as usual. It is great to get better and better at a medium and not encounter so much frustration. Yes, it would be boring if there were no conflict but the ride to the end is not as bumpy as it used to be.

I used to destroy ones that just didn't work out. I don't do that anymore. Some are better than others but they all have merit and the benefit of many decades of working at my own style. I have accomplished a lot and my surfaces are complex and visually compelling.

Pat that back and get back in the studio! Love what I do but I don't do it for free. It is not easy. It is artWORK!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When I look at the stars, which I don't do often, I am astounded by the fact or theory that we are the only planet in the universe with life. As more and more planets are discovered that may not be true at all.

I asked Clyde if he thought there was intelligent life some where else. I got the usual curmudgeon response.
If there is, I hope they are smarter than us and don't tear up their planet to make life easier or fight others more effectively or whatever all the things we have invented are supposed to do.

My Dad was always so impressed with our technological advancements. He said that pollution and climate change could be looked at as the details that needed to be taken care of. I don't see anyone taking care of these details. I see people fighting tooth and nail to ignore these problems in the name of money.

Clyde is not the only one that gets on his high horse. Sometimes the crazy artist wants to chime in, too.

Clyde said another planet's pet rocks are probably laughing at us.

Ask a curmudgeon for an opinion and get a curmudgeon response.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I am still working away on my Wix website. Considering all the artwork I need to add to it, it will take a long time to complete, but I do want to get traffic there as soon as possible so I will have my header painting with the link to it on my website! Not sure why there is a add to cart button. I have not added the online store option yet so patrons will have to contact me right now.

Eventually I will have the Fine Art widget on it for people that want prints. For now I will include that link under the painting, too! Please check out what I have there so far! Quite a lot to see. I am hoping to paint today but it is so dark out that it will be difficult to see the warm colors. Light is everything. My Daylight Florescent lights can only compensate for so much.

As I have mentioned before, the main reason I do not paint plein air is because of the extreme change in light from outdoors to indoors and my work is not going to be hanging outdoors somewhere. It is very important to me that the colors are accurate in home light and office light. Hope to get more light soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
I can't believe the number of mosquito bites I have had this season. I am not outdoors much and all our windows have very secure screens but I keep getting more welts. They seem to prefer me over Clyde and I probably scratch them while I am sleeping because they turn into massive lumps. Recently I was bit in the same place on each thigh.

I told Clyde that I think a couple of sisters decided to have a competition to see who could get the most. One of them said to the other, "You take this thigh and I'll get the other one and may the best blood sucker win." The one that got the right thigh won by a landslide, body slide, leg slide - whatever.

Anyway, I don't think a Hobbit like me with secure screens should be getting this type of bite action. They must sneak in on our clothes when we come in the door. I hate mosquitoes. They really do suck. I decided to look up whether or not we would be better off without them and here is what I found. I am not surprised that we should not try to eradicate them. Everything works together in nature like an airplane in the air. We should not try to get rid of any bolts or that airplane is going to crash.

Should we try to eradicate mosquitoes?

No, because not all are bad. Mosquitoes are a fly in the family Culicidae, and there are over 3500 species of them! The females lay eggs usually in still water, anything from a shallow pond to a flowerpot or birdbath or puddle. The larvae live in the water, eating microbes and small particles or algae. They pupate in the water, and the adult mosquito eventually emerges from the water surface and flies off.

What do adult mosquitoes eat? Most are vegetarian. They drink flower nectar, plant sap, and fruit juices, and never drink blood. Killing these species is not necessary: in fact, it’s counterproductive.

The more than 90 species of one such harmless genus, Toxorhynchites, also known as the “elephant mosquito” because of their great size, are an ally to our cause: their larvae eat other mosquito larvae! Since they are helpful, we should make sure any strategies we use to kill bad mosquitoes will leave these gentle giants alone.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Pawleys Island Atmosphere and Fun with Koalas...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Too much to do today so I am trying to get most of it done early. One of the problems with oil paintings is that even with a cover on the palette the expensive paint is drying as I am typing so I have to get in there and get to work. Acrylics dry almost as fast as you put it out on the palette so they have to be used up each session. I would agree with acrylic painters that there are many advantages to that medium but oils are just so much richer in my opinion. And they can be built up into a fascinating web of brushwork.

Well, time to get off of my High Horse and get to the studio. Right after I finish the laundry, scan some music, and do some dishes. I am finally getting to the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere now that my back is better. I put the first stage up a few weeks ago and it is about to hit 2000 hits! Definitely a keeper!
The painting is picture below and prints are available of this first stage. Busy, busy, busy!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Our church has a great Faith and Film night and so far I have supplied most of the films since I am a huge film buff. I know of a lot of uplifting films that pertain to faith and last night we saw Return to Me which is one of my all time favorite films. It is about regaining hope and happiness after a tragic loss. I won't give the plot away but it centers around a zoologist who works hard to get a great habitat for her gorilla friend.

The actress Bonnie Hunt and Director of the film is from a large Catholic family and she wanted to make a film about Catholics. Most of the kids in the film are her relatives. Anyway, it is a great romantic comedy, emphasis on comedy, and I highly recommend it. Carroll O'Conner is one of the principal players.

I don't have a funny from Clyde today. He said a few crazy things but I forgot to write them down so here is a free clip art funny. Not sure why the word koalified is partially hidden. The site did say free clip art. I am very careful about these things. Just wish I could get creeps to stop stealing my stuff.

Seems like all the ones I check into are out of range or not pursuable.

Argh!!!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell a print of Riverview Spring and Namaste right on out the Door...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so tired I am feeling like the Walking Dead lately. Okay, you know you are an old person that does not watch much TV when you make a reference to something and not know what you are referring to. I decided I had better look and now I know The Walking Dead is a TV program about Zombies. I wouldn't say I am a Zombie but now that my back is completely well I am working too hard at everything. Sometimes I wonder why I am such a workaholic. I don't wonder long. Got it from my Dad. He didn't drink at all. He worked and so do I.

I know of too many people that developed a bad alcohol problem so I am not about to take up drinking. I might like it too much. I love everything that I do. I just wish I could turn into some sort of supergirl that helps the planet but still has time for everything else. Long ago I traveled to Spain with my mother and was having some stomach problems. She insisted I take some sort of medicine that had a tranquilizing effect on me. I never felt better in my life! Drugs are not the answer either.

Just wish there were more hours in the day and I had more energy. Shouldn't complain, but we all do.

Anyway, glad to sell a large framed print of Riverview Spring to a great Virginia Beach patron! Check out all the print options below. A terrific Richmond VA patron owns the original!

Yoga has helped me very much and I would recommend it to anyone that would like to keep their body going. I learned a few years ago that exercise is not enough. Muscles seem to freeze with age. All the swiming, skating, and dancing is not enough.

Anyway, I go to class twice a week and also do small workouts at home. I like what it does for me but I don't like Yoga at all. It is strenuous and time consuming.

There is always a clock there and I try hard not to keep looking at it but I am anxious for the class to end.
I told Clyde I am always very glad to Namaste my butt right out the door when the class is over!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is back to a Shore painting and Ruff, Rest, Ruff...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Google and I are becoming close companions as I work on my independent website which I think I have published. I hit the publish button and I now have an address but, as usual, I am very confused with the site directions. I keep going back to Google and ask questions on how to work the site. The help buttons on sites tend to confuse me and chats drive me crazy. I have spent hours on those getting more and more confused. I have 82 paintings on it right now but they are not in collections which is something I should have done when I started.

I am going to take some time to set up the collections and then add more work. I am one prolific artist so there is a lot to add. I will add the Fine Art widget when I figure out how to do that. Now people will be able to go to the print collection on Fine Art America but my independent site will have all of my available originals so people won't have to wade through over 900 selections to find the paintings that are for sale.

Now that my back is completely well I am going to work on the large painting of the marsh side of Pawleys Island that I started three weeks ago. The first stage that I uploaded for print sales has already gotten 1800 hits.It is the cover image for the Youtube at the top. It is not going to be easy. I don't know about other painters, but I have to be in practice with the medium just like I have to be in practice to play the piano well. I would start a little one but I think I will just risk having to scrape expensive paint off this new large painting if it messes up.
Art is so much more complicated then I think most people realize it is.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I think I have mentioned before that we have problems with barking dogs in our neighborhood that seem to really get into it when we are trying to sleep. One neighbor manages to get dogs that bark slowly over and over again. Bark, rest, bark, rest, bark, rest,etc...
We have decided that it is practicing for a band it is going to form. The name should be Ruff Ruff and the Monotonous.

Dogs are great in many ways but I would love to have a dog free night. I don't sleep well as it is and I hate being awakened by a dog over and over again.

A lot of people these days like to look at everything as good. I hear people say the phrase, It's all Good, all the time. I don't think they would say that if they slept by our window on a cool summer night.

Time to get some more tea so I can wake up.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another print of Reaching Out and Look out for that Door....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I will never look at my front screen door again in the same way. Today as I was going out to mail a package the bottom metal section caught my heel and gave it a big gash. It bled for a while and then stopped so I don't think I will need stitches but ouch!!! One time my mother clipped herself with the dishwasher door. After that every time I got near it she said watch out. I thought she was being overly cautious but not anymore.

I will be creeping out the front door for a long time. It was a freak accident and I let out some loud choice words. I was hoping nobody heard me but my great neighbor came over to make sure I had not fallen down and hit my head or something. Great to have nice neighbors! If I weren't chained to a computer I would socialize more. I will try to make more time for people. Life is so short.

The good news is I sold another print of my best seller to a great Australia patron! "Reaching Out" is my most popular nude drawing and as I have said, ad nauseam, it was chosen to be on the set of the hit sitcom The Mindy Project which ran for six seasons.

Check it out below and my Specials end this evening!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, I am back to trying to find the answer to an Insurance question and being sent round and round in circles. I have a pad filled with the numbers I should call. Each person I call has a number I should call instead of their number. I think I may have the right one now but a robot answers and those robots drive me crazy. I say the wrong thing and they can't quite hear it and we go round and round in circles.

I will never forget how one company had my son older than me so they weren't going to cover his health costs. That one took months to straighten out.
Clyde said maybe they will send you the answer in 2096 when we are dead.

That won't do. I will strike up a conversation with the robot on Monday.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a Print of a Thesis Painting and When to Lie to a Judge...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am so pleased to sell a print of Blue Life to a great New York patron! This painting is one of many paintings that I did for my thesis. I compared the use of color of The Impressionists with the use of color of 20th century colorist Pierre Bonnard.

The thesis was both a written study of these artists and a comparison of their technique. I painted the same subject matter as I thought Monet, Renoir, and Bonnard would have painted them given what I know of these artists and what they wrote about regarding their approach to art.

Blue Life is a simple pitcher painted in the way I thought Pierre Bonnard would have painted it. I am very pleased with the strong glowing colors that are like those he used in his work. He pushed the color to it's limit.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I heard a TV judge tell a litagant not to ever lie to a judge in court.

I asked Clyde when should someone lie to a judge?

When you offer to buy them a martini and then go out the back door leaving the tab for the judge.

That says it all.

I decided while I was away visiting family that all my computer work could just drop off a cliff. Laptops and me do not get along.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler
I have great respect for Mathematics and I don't like all the quips about how someone that has not used Algebra in their adult life wonders why they had to take it in High School.

Actually we use Algebra and Calculus every day with our devices and many High School students haven't decided what they want to study in college so if they decide to become an engineer then they will be behind when they start college if they didn't take Algebra in High School.

Everyone should have to take Algebra.

All that aside, I do love the cartoon with the caption - Dear Math. I'm not a therapist. Solve your own problems.

I asked Clyde if he had anything to add to the cartoon and he said he couldn't add.

Ha ha.

My To Do List is so long today I want to hang it up somewhere and shoot it over and over again until it looks like swiss cheese. Oh well. I have already done a lot of work and there is plenty more to do.

To quote the Irish restaurant owner that Carol O'Conner played in one of my favorite movies, Return to Me - I am blessed with work. Now that is the attitude to have, not pot shots at the list.

Anyway, pleased to sell a print of Richmond Ripples to a great Massachusetts patron! Check it out below and click on the link to see all the prints option to the right. Original is still available!

Wow! I think the objects in our lives are becoming way too automated. What was the problem with rolling down a car window?

Why do people have riding lawn mowers when they could get some exercise pushing a mower?

Now there is a cup that stirs the drink for you. When I mentioned that to Clyde he asked if the cup takes the temperature of the liquid, too? Actually, there are cups that do that.

Well, I have said it before and I will say it again. If they computerize bathrooms we are going to need an out house.

Nothing today. Clyde and I both have a very long To Do List and that is not funny at all. If Clyde were here he would probably say change the words to do to don't do it and have a great day!

Feel like I am trying to get somewhere on one of those stationary exercise machines that we would never buy. No room and no desire to run in place. Our exercise must cover some territory, even if it is Line Dancing in the Living Room which I did do last night for the first time in three weeks!

Maybe we can get to the Lake today! Dream on!

Back to Yoga but still taking it easy. Twice I thought my back was completely better and twice the piriformis muscle acted up again. Still not painting.

One thing I have noticed over the years is that when I paint if I am in pain I can hardly feel it. All my attention is on the painting. Oh well, I can still play the piano. We creative types have a hard time slowing down but sometimes the body insists we stop working so hard.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I didn't have a funnie from Clyde but I did see a great artist joke on the internet. Well, great to me. I love puns.

A cowboy rides into town in the Wild West and shoots an artist.

The sheriff asks him, "Why did you do that?"

The cowboy says, "I thought he was going to draw."

Clyde liked the joke and added another one.

Just be sure you don't paint a pony.

Why?

It might ride off into the sunset.

Ha ha. Yes, Sheldon. That was a sarcastic ha ha.

Clyde came through with something after all, however weak.

I hope this is the last time I say my back is better. Don't want to jinx it. I thought it was better two other times and that piriformis muscle just laughed at me and started acting up once again. I have slowed down to a crawl but there is so much to do. My studio and house will just have to exist without me for a little longer.

Oh well, I hope I can get back to my latest painting soon. The first stage has over 1000 hits already! I just put it up a few days ago. I shouldn't complain.

I sold a print of Monumental Flare to a great Ohio patron yesterday! That's worth a smile! I am very pleased with the success of my Skyline Beauty paintings! Hope to get back to them soon, too!

Our reflections are not the mirror's fault.

That's what you think. There is a whole army of them out to get us. Somebody has to start shooting them.

This is getting to be a monotonous note on my blog. Last time I was so thrilled to be better and back to work and here I am again complaining about my back. When it feels better this time I am not going to do much of anything for days.

Got to get well. Planning a trip to see family at the end of the month. This workaholic has got to slow down and smell some roses.

First I have to find some roses that do not require me to bend down.

Very discouraged with my piriformis problem. I have so much to do. Usually I am like a very busy bee but since this muscle keeps acting up I am like the bee in the cartoon I saw. The bee is carrying buckets of honey that is too heavy for him.

Clyde said I should let the honey ferment and then drink it.

I'll bet that would take care of the pain in my back!

Yea!!! My back is well and I can get back to work not that I stopped work completely. But for me the last few days have been a vacation. We workaholics pay for being workaholics. I can't help it if I am a revved up painter. Also, there is always a dirty dish in my future and various other household chores.

And my piano must be played. It isn't a piece of furniture. Anyway, I will be working on the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere. I posted the first stage a few days ago and already have close to 900 views of it! Since it is doing so well I decided to post it here again! Prints will be available of all stages.

Wow! I decided to look up the calorie count of a very popular restaurant that specializes in buns. I don't want to get into any trouble here so I will not give the name. One of the buns has a calorie count of 1080! A lot of them are 500 and there is only one item that is 250.

Clyde said you get 250 calories when they let you lick the spoon that they use to ice the buns.

Well, I would like to blame my shipping mistake on my computer and I sort of can. I know I updated the business address on my mailing list but the computer reverted back to the old one. I know that for a fact because I changed one yesterday on the list and when I saved the changes the old one was still there.

I should have double checked with the one I had in a Facebook conversation with the patron but I guess I didn't so I think both the computer and I deserve a great big raspberry!

Anyway, the patron now has it and loves it!

Please check out Stage One of a new Pawleys Island painting! I am looking forward to working on it as soon as my back is completely well.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I used to have a cup of coffee in the evening and we both drank those great zero calorie vitamin drinks but he has quit them due to some esophagus problems he has.

He says he still drinks one cup of regular coffee at work so he won't fall into the computer, break it, and then get fired.
I doubt that will happen.

I can't believe the mistake I made last week. I sent a painting to the old business address of a repeat buyer and the carrier gave it back to the Post Office. My return address is on both sides of the package and my phone number is right under the address but I didn't get a call. I was so sure I put the new address on the package but I didn't. Hope it is sent back to me and then I will ship it to the correct address. No charge.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have always been amazed that so many people are too lazy to pick up their trash. A friend of mind retired to a beach house and picks up trash around her property.

My mind reels with sarcastic remarks on this subject. Maybe the manufacturers of trash cans should put instructions on how to use it on the front.

Here's Clyde's suggestion.

Put your trash in here or jump in yourself.

Wow! Not going to say that one to anyone but I am going to allow it here. I think only people that are too lazy to pick up their trash will be offended.

Hope no one sends me a nasty note.

Not getting much done today as I have been forcing myself to avoid work so my back can completely heal up. Still, there is always some computer stuff to do. It is the Never Ending Computer Story we have all joined.

Received a scam from a so called Facebook friend who is no longer a facebook friend. The nerve of some people. I gave him the link to the google post that exposed this scam and he said it was not a scam and completely legit.

I did not start typing my fingers off on a computer yesterday. I have been around a computer monitor and all the scams for a long time now.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When it comes to back problems I will never learn how to convalesce. When I start to get better which is usually the second day after it goes out I try to do too much and then I am in big trouble.

It is a lot better today which is the fourth day after the injury and I am not going to do much of anything. Clyde has K.P. and all other chores.

Over the years I have heard a lot of different approaches to back pain. One wife of a chiropractor said ice should be used the first day or so and then heat. Others have told me to start with a heating pad. Still others say to alternate between cold and hot.

I have decided on the alternating hot and cold treatment.

I will not try Clyde's suggestion which is, lean back and get the whiskey out.
Since we are both teetotalers, booze is not an option.

Not so far.

Clyde has had his share of knee problems but, so far, no back problems. That's my domain. I did go for a long time without any trouble and then ouch! I pushed a mountain of groceries up a hill when my back was a little sore and yesterday it was at the I -can't- do- much- of -anything sore.

A lot better today so my awful workaholic self is crawling back to everything. I was very good yesterday and did not make it worse which is my usual way of handling an injury. So look out house, computer, and studio! Here comes the crazy lady!

Yesterday I was hobbling around but today the art maniac is back!

Another Sunday shot out of a rocket. Oh well. After church that Clyde officiated at we attended a wonderful celebration of the life of Richard T. Jackson, a good friend and excellent neurologist who will be greatly missed. His three terrific sons gave a program complete with slides and music. It was very well done and we saw a lot of people we have not seen in a long time. Life is fleeting. It is always great to get together with friends.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Friday we all went to Claytor Lake and had a great time! Clyde even got into the water for a while and found a strange dark colored shell that looked just like some of the small conch like shells we used to find at the beach! He keyed it out when we got home.

Before we went to the lake Clyde hauled out a bunch of clothes in an attempt to find his bathing suit. Now that he has lost 36 pound he has a lot of balloon pants that we need to get rid of.


He said some of them were big enough for an elephant's butt and his at the same time!

Still no funnies. Oh well. I am going to dunk Clyde in Claytor lake this evening. He doesn't really like the water and told me this morning he doesn't have any slides so I am going to the store and get him some. No excuses this time. There are plenty of birds and butterflies he can watch there.

I will make sure he doesn't have his keys in his pocket. I will never forget the time his keys fell into the lake and we had to scramble for them. That was a mess! I know he isn't looking forward to the lake but I am.

Summer is always over before you know it. You have to seize the lake!

Looks like I don't have a funnie today. I kept waiting for one from Clyde as the ants packed their bags and moved into the bathroom, but nothing. Time to get that Ajax and try that.

I literally work my butt off. It is definitely smaller than it used to be. Some of my clothes are getting too big. I will have to get around to the hated chore of shopping.

I know. A big sarcastic Boo Hoo to me.

Anyway, maybe I can goad Clyde into something for the next blog.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

All of my life I thought I was definitely different. High School certainly proved that. I didn't fit in at all and lived in my own world of art, music, and literature. When I was a kid and definitely different I told people I knew I was crazy. I didn't think it was because I was an artist. I used to argue with people and students that artists are not crazy.

Van Gogh had a history of mental illness in his family and I think it is very likely he would have had problems regardless of what career he took up. I gave up on that one and just agree with people that think artists are nuts. Now that I am pretty old I have noticed some strange mental lapses.

I told Clyde sometimes I think I am losing my mind and then I say to myself, did I ever have one? Oh well. I may be on the wacky side and getting wackier by the minute but I am a well functioning nut with a lot of paintings to paint.

Why is my number four paint brush on the shelf with the cookies?

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I live about ten minutes from the hospital so unless it is something serious we don't wait on each other. The one in the hospital calls the other one when the procedure is done. Yesterday I was asked by the receptionist who would be waiting for me or picking me up. I told her and gave her the number.

Every other person I came into contact with asked me with a slightly worried look on their face if someone was going to pick me up. I would be woozy and unable to drive. I told them Clyde who was only ten minutes away. One of them asked me twice.

When we got home I told Clyde I was asked that question over and over again. He said I should have told them no and they were going to have to drop me in a rickshaw and drag me home and please include a mint julep.

Just a joke! The staff was great!

I am not looking forward to tomorrow or Thursday. It is that awful time again for a colonoscopy. Yuck! I am glad that the prep has changed so much. I just have to be on the liquid diet tomorrow. It certainly is an important procedure and I am glad there are people in the medical profession that are willing to do it. Wish there was an easier way.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I see a joke on Facebook that cracks me up and I have to run and tell Clyde. He is a much tougher audience.
While I am gasping for breath he may be laughing but not losing it like me.

This one really caused me to lose some air.

Always remember that Jesus loves you because everyone else thinks you are a jerk.

Actually, I changed the last word. I don't want to offend anyone. No disrespect to anyone's faith intended.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, I think this will be the last post this summer on the Ant Chronicles. There are no ants in any of the rooms! I keep expecting to see one holding up a white surrender flag or saluting us for our victory.

Clyde said not to wish for that. If one shows up it will be to case the joint for crumbs and then signal the troops to come back.

No!!!!!!!

If that happens I will be waving the white flag!

My yoga teacher pulled some modifications of old moves that she learned at a yoga learning session of some sort and I think those new moves might be a little too much. I have a sore muscle in my hip I didn't have before today's class. Hope it doesn't get worse. Lots of work to do but I think I had better take it easy. I will do that right after Line Dance class. Hope I don't pay for lack of caution.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Some interesting developments regarding dogs these days. Man's best friend sure is getting some special treatment. I recently saw a car seat for dogs. Looked just like one for a baby.

The other day there was a dog food commercial that claimed to put the puppy back into a fat, old, lazy dog. First there was a video of the fat dog looking pretty awful and then the same dog trimmed down and running around like a puppy.

My curmudgeon hubby said the videos were presented backwards. The dog got fat and lazy off of the miracle dog food. Don't get me wrong, dogs are great, but they are not people and I think we need to dial back some of these efforts to turn them into humans with fur.

Lots of pictures of them wearing clothes, too. Next thing you know they will be sitting on boosters seats and eating with a knife and fork at the table.

The arm wrestling is over for my latest painting! I am getting exactly what I want. When I started I wasn't sure what I wanted for my latest wildlife painting. I knew I wanted to get an intense expression with a complex surface. I am almost done and will be glad to add it to my portfolio! It is completely different from the first layer. Now I want to get to a large painting while I am in practice with oils. It is my main medium but when I go to the very different medium of acrylics I have to get my ease back with oils or I waste a lot of expensive paint. Looking forward to the last session! When my painting is working I feel like I'm out on the bay enjoying life!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Lately I have had Steven Sondheim's song Send in the Clowns on my mind. I told Clyde it is because of the ants. For several mornings now I have been singing Where are the ants. There ought to be ants. I have been singing that because there aren't any in the kitchen but a little later I sing the last two lines. Don't bother. They're here.

One or two keep showing up but I think we are on the verge of success. I am starting to put back a few things on the shelves that are closed but I know from past experience that ants can work their way in.

Clyde said to quit singing the first two lines or a whole troupe of them may hear it and come in with a very loud, Don't bother. They're here!!!! They might to start a rock band.

Fingers, knees, and eyes crossed!

I am arguing with the computer once again. Trying to bulk edit my listings on a site and only a few were changed. I know I checked the change all listings simultaneously box but, as usual, the computer did what it wanted to do. They really do have minds of their own. I just wish they had a cooperative mind or I was much more computer saavy. I would say back to the drawing board but that doesn't apply here. Back to the computer screen that I am looking at too much.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I was very surprised that a show I liked so much has been cancelled! The Last Man on Earth was great with great actors and writers and the last episode is a cliff hanger. A small group of survivors was on its own for a long time and some of them even reproduced. In the last scene they are surrounded by dozens of people with gas masks on. That's it? Show cancelled?

I complained to Clyde and he said well Star Trek was thrown out way before it completed it's five year mission.

Yeah, they were beaming people up all over the place and then the space rug was yanked out from under them.

Maybe they should have beamed up some TV execs and had a talk with them.

Oh well, I guess I will never know how the merry band on The Last Man on Earth handled all those other survivors.

Also, I needed to get a hair cut but I did manage to paint a little so who am I to complain? Beautiful day that I got to look at from my studio and car. Anxious for the hot weather. Too cold to swim at the lake right now. Looking forward to getting there as soon as the water and air warm up!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I woke up with the intention of just greeting the ants as guests. All of the food items they can get into are sitting in a chair in the living room. What a place for a pantry! According to Clyde they don't usually climb furniture. He has always been right about that in the past and so far every thing is fine.

When I entered the kitchen there weren't any ants. I couldn't believe it. Maybe the traps worked this time. Yea!!!! I almost put everything back but I thought I would wait and later on there were two walking along the counter and thumbing their noses at me.

Today there was a party walking around in circles.

A Wordpress friend said to try Ajax. I think I will put that on the grocery list.

I would greatly appreciate a Google review if you like my work! Here is the address!
https://goo.gl/rV7F9a

I can't believe that I am deciphering things on my new Wix website! I have such a hard time figuring different site layouts but I am moving ahead. Sometimes I have to look up instructions on Google and then when I go to the Wix site the word I need to see is, of course, not there.

The instructions are clear but sites are always changing and aggravating me to no end. It took a long time of going around in circles but I got the No Right Click set up so in most cases people can't steal my images. I say most cases, because I am sure there are some clever computer geeks that can get around these protective devices.

Oh well, hopefully people can't get prints for free. I am going to add more work and then publish it while I add a lot more work. Then I am going to work to make the connections I couldn't make with my website on Fine Art America. Hope all goes well!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, the ant traps are not working. The ants crawl all over the trap but don't go in.

Clyde says that is because they know it doesn't work but they are just checking it out because they have stock in the product.

But if the traps don't start working the ants are going to lose their shirts, or whatever they lose on the stock market because no one will buy them.

I guess they figure it will be a long time before people figure it out and by that time they will be rich.

What happens when they become rich?


They kick the queen out and move to a bigger ant hill.

https://goo.gl/rV7F9a

I am real pleased to get back to another wildlife painting. I have had such a hard time starting this one that I went back to acrylics for another Suggestions painting. I already posted it in another blog but there was a problem with the website so it wasn't available for prints. It is there now.
Other than a strong appreciation for nature I am not into statement art. I am a formalist and will probably always be a formalist but a message can be read into this painting. We all lose so much that was important to use when were kids. The balloons that are just floating around can be taken to refer to that loss.
Anyway, like all of my paintings, the way I handled the colors, spacing, and texture is what it is mostly about.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I take a lot of vitamins. When I was young I studied up on nutrition and have been mindful of it ever since. I have made some mistakes, especially with potassium. The daily requirement is so high it is tricky to get enough. Anyway, a while back I bought multi vitamins just for women and forgot about them. I am working on finishing them up and just use the ones for adults. I noticed the women's vitamins are huge. They are the size of a bullet.

Clyde said maybe they are the size of a bullet because women have to bite the bullet. Perhaps.

I saw a cute joke on the internet about vitamins. A guy claims he gets all the vitamins he needs at work. Vitamin C from coffee, Vitamin D from doughnuts and vitamin B from bagels.

I think I know my way around this one now and can keep adding work to it which will take a long time. When I have a good number of works up I will publish the site and keep adding more.

As I said, now people won't have to wade through close to a thousand images to find originals that haven't already been sold but are available for print sales. This will be great to put all available originals on my own website that is not connected to any other website! Yes. Moving forward!

Clyde and I like to take a lot of walks through the beautiful Radford parks, especially Wildwood Park. These days I think it is important to have a cell phone with us in case of emergencies. I left mine in the car so I asked Clyde if he had his. I wasn't sure if his took photos so I asked and it does.


Why, are you going to take a picture of the mugger while he is mugging you?


Sure. Then he can have a nice picture of himself when he steals your money and your phone.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Suggestion Painting and They are Marching Again...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Suggestion Painting and They are Marching Again...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist




I would greatly appreciate a Google review if you like my work! Here is the address!
https://goo.gl/rV7F9a

I am real pleased to get back to some Suggestions paintings! They are quite a trip. In these paintings I paint in an Abstract Expressionist manner and then look for some forms to pull out. This time it looked like balloons swirling around. Here is the first stage which may be the last stage. I don't have it up for print sales due to some problems with the site that sells my prints. I keep getting an error message when I try to add something to my portfolio. I hope they fix that soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Time once again to add a post to the Ant Chronicles. I have a new strategy for getting rid of them. I am cleaning their paths over and over again with ammonia hoping that will asphyxiate them or at least make them think twice about congregating in our kitchen. The ant traps don't work. It sure takes a while to find all their meeting places.

This time they set up a motel in an enclosed plastic mouse trap that did not have any bait. It is funny how you see one or two and then zillions.

Clyde says they probably have cell phones they use as soon as they see a crumb. Last year he said they get on a horn for a shout out but he thinks they have updated their methods by now.

Got to get back to work and I don't mean computer work. I get real uptight when I can't get to a painting. I have a gessoed board and I hope I can get the first layer of a wildlife painting started tomorrow. On our trip to Wintergreen I saw the first and only bear I have ever seen. Glad I was in a car riding away. I prefer wildlife from a distance, on the TV, or in a painting.

There are a lot of aggravating commercials on TV right now. A local lawyer is telling us over and over again to support our great service people such as fireman, policemen, etc.

Glad to be back home after a grueling trip to Wintergreen resort near Charlottesville, Va. We had a great time but the trip there was an awful experience in horrible fog and the trip back was behind about 500 bicyclists on some sort of race. Clyde had to crawl and get around a few at a time for what seemed like forever! When we finally got to the Blue Ridge Parkway so we wouldn't have to travel on I-81, it was closed. We had to go through Roanoke and get on an extremely congested I-81.

Like I said. Glad to be home.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Wow! We just got back from a Naturalist Symposium that Clyde was a part of. It rained and rained and rained. The wifi was so miserable that my i-pad came very close to becoming a frisbee. There was so much water I'll bet I could have skimmed it like a rock over the sidewalks.

I don't know why I think I can get any internet stuff done at resorts. I finally gave up and declared myself off the grid and had a great time at several lectures and the pool! Great hot tubs! Clyde did a terrific job as always!

If you ever want to see all the naturalist stuff he does just put his name in Google!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Like my dear father I am a workaholic. I don't know if that is hereditary or if there is something in our chemical makeup that causes me and caused him to work all the time. One time when he had to be in the hospital he was given a tranquilizer and could not believe how great he felt. My mother slipped one to me on a trip and I have never felt better. I don't want to take something to slow me down. I like working but yesterday I decided I should cut back and not do as much as I usually do.

I called Clyde to tell him I was sort of chilling - taking a mini-vacation.

He asked if someone came to door and gave me a Speeding Ticket.

Ha ha.

Yes, Sheldon. That was another sarcastic ha ha.

My new website will only have originals for sale. Considering how on all the pages that I offer originals for sale, there are a lot of sales, looking through my current website for available originals is quite time consuming. Now patrons can find originals all in one place!
It will be a while before I publish it but it will happen!

No.

But you usually have all sorts of quips pouring out of your mouth.

Well, I am not equipped to drop quips out of my mouth right now.

How can I get them going again?

Pay me.

I don't have any money.

Then I don't have any quips.

Shoot. I guess the birds and the butterflies have all his attention right now.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde gets really aggravated with shoe laces these days. For some reason the ones he has been getting like to untie themselves without a finger of encouragement from him. He will be walking along and presto change-o the shoes are untied.

We have decided that they are that way on purpose so people won't have to work hard to untie them. Since they come apart on their own Clyde has decided they must treat the laces with slug slime and the ones he buys have too much of it.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I saw a commercial that astounded me. The announcer was asking for people that had suffered injuries due to
medication to seek financial compensation. There was a long list of injuries and the last one was death.

The list was written out and the announcer read it including the word death.

I told Clyde and he added, If you can read this you are not in heaven. Give us a call.

Clyde is going to get me a new mouse this week and it will not come a moment too soon! I told him we should torture this one before we scrap it. I don't feel bad about saying that since it is a just a creature in name only. I may at least throw it up against a brick wall. I had to start over four times yesterday on my newsletter because it kept deleting the whole thing when I tried to delete a single word. I started just backing up to delete but then it deleted the words I didn't want to delete all by itself.

This is the most aggravating computer device I have ever had - bar none!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Shipping costs continue to astound me.

This past week I mailed two paintings that were the same size in the same package to addresses in Virginia, not that far from each other. The first one was going to be so high I decided to take a chance and not insure it, a decision I greatly regretted right after I dropped it off. I worried over it and was so glad when the patron contacted me to say it had arrived safely. The next day I insured the second one and the price was less than the other one without insurance. Go figure!

Clyde said the first one was so high because the clerk forgot his lunch and needed a burger.

I doubt that. LOL!

Well, this rodent is working a little better but not much. I know it is not the battery. I guess these mice just die on you and you have to replace them. This one is not very old so I think it has a lot of nerve to act up so much. Anyway, I mailed out two paintings this week so that is always good.

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Wow! Yesterday was such a pain! Between this ridiculous mouse that selects when it wants to, problems in the studio, and a printer that did not want to print I was cussing up a storm!

I called Clyde and griped and cussed to him for a while. When he came home I told him the great thing about working at home is you can cuss up a storm and no one has to hear you.

Except me.

Oh yeah. Whoops! Well I'm sure you have heard worse.

I am trying to relax between work. The work never ends but that is the way it is. I will be mailing two paintings out this week so crates have to be made. Crating artwork is a real pain but it just can't be put in any old box. It has to be double boxed and completely immobilized or it can be damaged. I learned how to do this in school. Also, lots of internet stuff to do.

Relaxing on Sunday is an art.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Lately I have been thinking about all the words we have for old age. Senior citizen is a nice one. It implies seniors are the top of the heap. You have to wonder about "mature". Considering how our bodies are falling apart mature seems a little off the mark.

I asked Clyde what he thought.

Over ripe might work better.

That sounds about right to me.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


The other day I actually spent some time dusting the house. I am really bad about that chore. Too many hurdles to get around. Even a feather duster can't take care of the dust in our dump.

When Clyde came home I told him I was dusting because I saw there was an inch of the stuff on everything. I am trying to get it down to half an inch.

Either that or start growing some potatoes.

That sounds like too much work. I can live with a half an inch of dust.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


As I have said before we eat at much organic food as possible. I have given up on the homemade frozen yogurt thing with organic ingredients. I can't find a recipe I like that has less than 400 calories a half a cup so I am sticking with store bought that has 130 a half a cup. If that is because they add sea weed, so be it. I'll take my chances with their additives.

I make my organic bread and cookies. I was very surprised to see organic oreos so I am buying them sometimes.

I told Clyde how amazed I was to find organic oreos.

Are you sure they weren't hijacked off an oreo truck and put in to boxes that have organic on the label?

I hope not.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


Our bodies certainly change a lot as we age. I knew Clyde would not know about one of my changes so I told him.

You know what is really funny about aging?

There is nothing funny about aging.


Yes there is. I have to put on glasses to see the few hairs that grow on the front part of my legs that used to be filled with hair. That hasn't happened to you. You still have the same amount of beard hair.

Give it time.

Why, what will happen?

It will turn purple.

Why will it turn purple?

So it will glow in the dark and you can find me when I fall.

Now, that is a weird answer.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


This rodent is really acting up! The battery was just changed so I know that is not the problem. The selection holds when it feels like it. Sometimes when I select words the mouse mixes up the letters.

Then the real fun one is when I select something and am flipped to a different page on the computer!

Yikes! I complained to Clyde and he said maybe it is time to tie a strong on it, drop it out the window and let some cats play with it.

Sounds good to me.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


For some reason the amount of meat that we get in a serving of take out Chinese food varies quite a lot. I started to get the large because sometimes there just was not enough meat. Clyde gets the small and has noticed that he was getting less and less pork.

He thought they were just getting chincier.

I explained to him that it just varies a lot and yesterday he had more than enough and I had enough for two people.

Now he believes me. He said maybe it just depends on the size of the pig they catch that day.

Ha ha. Pretty sure there isn't any livestock out back.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A while back I decided to tackle all the mess in our house a little bit at a time. I have too many regular things to do with housework and artwork to try to organize it all at once. I have finished two rooms, two closets, and a bathroom.

I will spend some time on another closet and then I will bravely enter this room unarmed and wrestle it down. It is filled with mountains of Clyde's stuff so I don't know if victory will be mine.

I told him cleaning and organizing a little of it at a time can be done. You can take anything that way.

That's what the old roach said to the fly swatter. It died anyway.

Okay, that was a weird funnie but I like it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

In my last blog I said our Prius had never gotten over the loss of our Ford so it laid down and died. Well, I guess it decided to carry on because it is now repaired and zooming along! We had to pay for a very expensive battery. The Prius has two batteries and the little one conked out.

Of course, it is past the warranty. Cars parts know just when to die. Some sort of automotive intuition. Anyway, we are glad we don't have to buy a new car. This one should hobble along for a few more years.

Clyde and I are both hobbling along pretty well. You'd think the car could do the same thing. Our parts aren't replaceable.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Last August we had to buy a new car as one of our cars laid down and died. I think the other one has never gotten over it and it took a turn for the worse and had to be towed to the repair place.

Since Clyde was without a car today I had to drive him to work which is a 30 minute drive. I like to have some humor in this section and I pretty much depend on Clyde for the funnies.

I didn't have one today so I asked him if he had anything I could use.

I thought I gave you a few. What did you do with them? Dropped them in the trash wishing they were me?

Wow, he is one glib writer.

Enough said!

My mouse is driving me crazy today. The selecting is whacky. I can't select and then write over it. It knocked one of my youtubes to the bottom when I was trying to change something. I know what the problem is. I keep putting off changing the battery. It needs new juice but I keep pushing the old one a little more. After my last loud cussing session I think I just may get off this seat and get a new one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I read an interesting tweet today. If a writer falls in love with you, you will live forever. I don't know about other writers, but Clyde is always cracking me up with his off beat sense of humor.

So in my case if a writer falls in love with you, you are in danger of asyphixiation.

I may laugh to death some day but what a way to go!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is not interested in writing novels or humorous books. Poetry is his thing but every once in a while I tease him about writing a book.

Since he is such a curmudgeon I said he should write a book called The Stupidity of Everything. He said that would take 5000 pages for the first sentence.

Now that's a curmudgeon deluxe!

I have been doing my Happy Dance today! I played for Thursday night's service, Friday night's service and today's service but I don't play next Sunday! Great to have a break! As I have said before, I love to play the piano but I don't like to perform.
Stage fright is awful. I thought I was done with the stage when I retired from teaching but somehow I got back on. Oh well. I hardly shook at all today so I am getting better at it and I get great compliments from the parishioners!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working diligently to improve his knee with exercises and leg lifts. He also gets a shot every so often right into the knee which is very expensive. I asked him if it hurts.

He said the small ones that are administered more often than the big one don't hurt but the doctor said Insurance will not cover those. It will cover the one with a big needle. So, in order to keep the Insurance Company happy Clyde has to be harpooned every six months.

Yuck.

One great thing about Social Media is that a lot of what I do to keep up with it can be done while I talk on the phone. Just finished a good conversation with my brother while I got a lot of computer chores done.
Always like to talk with him about computer stuff. He has a doctorate in Computer Science so he is not next door to clueless about this helpful but aggravating device.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde doesn't speak Spanish but I like to practice my Spanish around him because he usually comes up with a funny comment on it.
I also like to us a little Spanglish now and then. The other day he asked me when I was leaving to go Line Dancing.

I said around quarter after dos a clock.

After you had a dose of what?

I don't drink booze. I married you. Why would I drink booze?

Why wouldn't you?

Ha ha and again, yes Sheldon, that was a sarcastic ha ha.

Roads are great now but a lot of surrounding areas will not have power for a few more days! What a Spring storm! Our power was only off for a few hours. We certainly have had it easy compared to some. I hope that was the end of the winter weather that showed up late.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I said to Clyde while he looked parked in the living room chair without hope of removal. Looked like he was stuck.

Anything new?

No.

Anything old?

Yeah, sitting right here in this chair trying not to fall off.

Don't think that will happen. He is 36 pounds lighter than he was last Spring but I think he can still stay in a chair.

Fifteen inches of snow! Wow! Radford City is great about snow removal. We were able to get out by early afternoon. Not sure how many times the plow came through but I know it was more than twice!

Where I come from if you want the snow off the street you had better pick up a shovel and get to it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

A while back I mentioned I actually put the cheese in the drawer with scissors, tape, rubber bands, etc. It was there for quite a while before I found it and decided that was one huge senior moment.

Well, the other day I couldn't find the lettuce that I was sure I bought with my weekly grocery trip. I told Clyde to look out. He may find lettuce in one of the drawers.

He said to check the computer room.

Why the computer room?

Because that is where you are parked most of the time. Put lettuce in the Google search and it will probably show up.

How can the lettuce get into a computer?

Why not? Computers are sucking up our lives. Maybe it can suck up some lettuce.

Groan.

Not looking forward to being snowed in tomorrow! I hope the forecast does not come true. If it does I am putting on some boots and walking around in it. I have not done that for a long time and I always used to say if we have to have winter it should come with snow.

It really is beautiful and Radford is great about clearing the roads.

Maybe Spring will show up on Monday!

Our Land Line rings all day long with vendor calls of one sort or another. Some have addresses but most of them say private caller.

Today I saw a cute joke about these calls.

It says private caller so I am going to respect their privacy and not answer!

Clyde said we get so many private calls that he thinks one of these days someone will show up with a private caller hotline and put it in our house. Nothing surprises me these days!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Yesterday we saw a commercial about a dog food that helps out of shape dogs get their vigor back.

The worn out dog is lying on the floor. The next scene shows the same dog running around catching a ball and looking great.

Clyde said that's the dog's stand-in.

The first dog is chewing on a fattening treat right after he told the director that running around after a ball was not in his contract.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The other day I learned something new about health and wanted to tell Clyde.

There is another reason to keep your weight down other than all the things I have been preaching to you about.

So when people throw rocks at you, you are a harder target to hit?

No, we all know that one. A doctor has a hard time checking out ovaries if the patient is over weight.

Glad to know. Last time I checked I didn't have any ovaries.

Ha ha. Yes, Sheldon, that was a sarcastic ha ha.

I am excited about my new genre painting of a man fishing at Pawleys Island on the marsh side. I have completed two stages of it and after I make another video for Youtube I will start on the third but the second is close to what I want!
The colors and textures seem more spontaneous than usual as I try to not over think the work which is very hard. Anyway, looking forward to working on it tomorrow!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Sunday afternoon I was changing out of my church clothes and into some crummy clothes that Good Will would hand back to me if I tried to donate them.

I said to Clyde there is nothing too crummy for around the house.

Thank you.

I was not talking about you. I was talking about my clothes.

Oh.

Wow, there is nothing too crummy to wear around the house and there is hardly anything I say that Clyde won't turn into a funny!

You know you are losing it when you get your March 1 Business License renewal over due notice and say to yourself, "But it isn't due yet! It's February." That actually happened to me a few days ago.

Time is moving too, too fast! Somebody slow it down a little! Somehow I misplaced the first ten days of March.
Yikes!


I always have three Special Promotions each week but I like to leave one of them up for a while. The special for Ranges by Arnold Valley pictured below will be gone in a few days.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before Clyde goes to bed much earlier than me. He has to get up at 4:00 and I don't sleep well. I have learned that if I stay up late I will sleep better. Just wish I didn't have to get up at 7:30.

Anyway, oftentimes when I come into the bedroom I notice that Clyde is asleep with a smile on his face. I asked him about that and he said maybe it is because he is basically happy for a sad sack curmudgeon.

Well, I guess if you are a curmudgeon it certainly helps to be a happy one!

I am real pleased to sell another print of Fall on the New River to a great VA patron! This is my most popular New River painting. A great NC patron owns the original.
Working hard on my latest Pawleys Island oil painting. So glad to be back to oils. The only problem is I am low on paint and a number of the tubes I use are now $50. Yikes! Got to sell or I can't paint.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have said before, Clyde wakes me up from his office at work. Fun alarm clock! Lots of times when I answer I say, "Who dat?" The last time he said an old goat.

Hey, goats eat things other than food, right?

Yeah.

Well, maybe I can get the old goat to eat some of this mess in the computer room?

I doubt it could take care of all that stuff. I still think our only hope is to lob a few grenades.

In other words, the mess stays where it is.

Yep.

I wanted to get this blog out this morning but the day got away from faster than it usually does. Oh well, I like the saying about it all being good. I hear a lot of people say that and it is helpful to just keep going in spite of adversity and be content. I would be a lot more content if someone would hours to the day but I don't think that will happen. Better to have too much to do then not much at all.

Clyde is a very smart husband. He was not married yesterday and he knows all about the things that should not be said to a wife. I was joking with him about how some husbands will make comments about their wive's weight.

I am not overweight but I goaded him with a whiny, am I fat?

If you were bigger than the side of a house I would say no. I want to stay alive.

Like I said. Smart husband.

Well, got through another church service with shaking legs as I played the piano. Did okay but I get so nervous. A friend of mine that plays the organ said after a while you just play and it doesn't bother you anymore. When is that going to happen? I have been playing for over a year. Oh well, I will keep at it until someone else will take over for me.

Looking forward to that!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Right now there is a commercial about a drug that helps people stop smoking. The testimony people give is that it really reduces the urge to smoke.

Clyde said wouldn't it be great if there was a pill that would reduce the urge to do something stupid?

Considering all the counter productive things people often do, I think that pill would be great!


I'd take it!

Yesterday when Clyde came home I told him there was something I wanted to say to him but it went right out my head.

You changed the locks but it didn't work?

No.

You meant to change the locks but forgot?

No.

Maybe the next time you come home with a snarky comment I will remember.

Go watch some birds.

Working at a hundred things at the same time but I am trying to get my latest commissioned painting of an enlargement of Wading on its way to Richmond. Had to take some pictures with very few mishaps. I didn't trip over the tripod but I did have trouble attaching the camera to it. Sometimes the little gizmo fights me. Anyway, ran into a frame problem so I will be mailing the painting tomorrow.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I always get the Bird report from Clyde and a lot of people think that is all he studies which is not at all true. He studies all wildlife and plants, too.

The other day he told me he was out watching a plant grow.

No one watches a plant grow.

It was moving faster than me.

One for the naturalist books. As Charlie Brown would say,"Good grief".

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We recently watched a movie that had an elaborate wedding. It involved a wedding planner, lots of guests, dance lessons for the wedding party, rehearsal dinner, lots and lots of pre-wedding drama, etc.

We threw something together with the help of my Mom and just had the two immediate families at a club. I didn't even want a cake but the minister said we should have a cake, but I did not stuff Clyde's mouth with it. Don't like that custom.

Anyway, after the movie with the fancy wedding Clyde said if I had wanted all of that stuff he would have gotten a speeding ticket zooming down the interstate in the opposite direction. I think our simple wedding was right for us.

I am getting the crate ready to send my enlargement of Wading to a Richmond painting. Artwork has to be immobilized for protection so it has to be double boxed. It is a pain to cut all the cardboard pieces but it has to be done. The paint is still wet in a number of places so it looks like it won't be shipped until next week.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler


This morning I spent a full hour at a car dealership waiting to find out why my check engine light is on a car we bought in July 2016.

When I got home I told Clyde he would never guess in a million years why that light was on.

The gas cap was loose.

How did you know?

It is in the manual.

Then why didn't you check?

Don't know.

Okay, do you have a funny for my blog?

You are looking at one.

Not after wasting my time at the dealership.

Okay, nothing today.

Waiting for the paint to dry on my latest commission of Wading. Should be soon. I hope to be able to mail it out at the end of this week! I think it has turned out real well and the patron contacted me to say he was looking forward to getting it.

Below is the original that he wanted an enlargement of. Prints can be bought of this one. I don't know if I will offer prints of the enlargement. The spacing is a little different due to the change in proportions. Still thinking about that.

Wow, some very important people want to get to know me! Prince Harry is following me on Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg wants to be my friend on Facebook! Scammers to the right of me and scammers to the left of me! Scammers all over the internet.

Clyde said he was sure that Mark Zuckerberg and Prince Harry want to discuss a collaboration of my artwork for the Palace and Facebook!

Just saw a whole pack of pigs flying by my window!

I have just about finished the enlargement of Wading and will send it as soon as it completely dries. I know there are a lot of artists that prefer acrylics and the main reason is the drying time but they just don't have that rich glow that oils do. To each his own!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I think about teaching, mostly I have night mares about it. Clyde didn't have any problem with standing in front of large groups of students. I had a lot of great students but the problem with teaching is you tend to remember the difficult ones more than the good ones.

I feel sorry for teachers. They have to contend with cell phones and students that think if they learn how to use Google, that should be all the education they will need. Saw a cute cartoon with a teacher showing a child 1 + 1 = 2. She said to the child that, yes, she would use this knowledge later in life.

Yikes!

I am real pleased with my latest commission. Enlarging a painting can be tricky, especially if it has complicated brushwork as this one has. The original is only 6" x 5" and was painted with acrylics. I am painting the 24" x 18" one in oils. Oils is my favorite medium. I hope to have it done in a few days and then send it after it dries.

Also, pleased to sell another print of Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great Chicago patron! This painting and Breakers at Pawleys island are my two most popular shore paintings!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I was talking to Clyde about how I am getting ditzier and ditzier. I need to read more. I play the piano every day. That is supposed to help but I am doing some really strange things.

The other day I cut the plastic to open a cheese packet, got a piece of cheese and then put the scissors and cheese in the drawer. Clyde said one time he put his phone in the frig. He said his brain must be fried. Too much time spent writing poetry.

Should have been drinking beer.

Waiting for the paint to dry on my current commission. Some artists work wet-in-wet but I prefer to add layers to dry layers. I think the thin to thick method of painting is the best.

Most people don't realize that most paintings are done in layers and oil paint layers can take quite a while to dry. Well, I will work on some others while I wait.

Acrylics dry practically as you brush them on.

I have a tendency to work so hard that I injure myself. Now that I do Yoga every day it doesn't happen anymore, hardly ever, well, once in a while.

I told Clyde I have a new take on the saying, "No rest for the weary". I say in my case, "No rest for the stupid" .

I doubt I will ever wise up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I keep hearing this commercial that talks about "Feel Good Fruit".

I asked Clyde which fruit isn't "Feel Good"?

The fruit that falls off a tree and hits you in the head.

That makes sense. Especially the fruit that is over ripe and has a tenant.

My Dad used to joke around about being a famous singer when he was young. He said he was so good people would throw fruit at him. He wondered why they threw fruit that was very, very ripe.

LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Thinking outside the box. That saying has always sounded weird to me. I know what it means but I still think it is a strange way of saying try a different approach to something, so I asked the Word Man what he thought it meant. He says you find a box and get inside. Then you get out and see if you have a thought.

I think if I did that, my thought would be why did I get into that box?

I mailed Memphis Lights out yesterday and will begin a new commission today! A patron that owns two of my paintings wants an enlargement of one of my Suggestions paintings, Wading. These paintings are done on small pieces of cheap paper and I use cheap paint so I don't offer the originals for sale, but great prints of them can be purchased. This patron wants an original so I am pleased to enlarge one with good paint on canvas!

Clyde loves the X- Files. I am so glad they are back on! It is not for me but he really enjoys that show.

I asked him if he was really an alien since he liked the show so much.

No.

Are you sure?

Positive. Too Tired.

You have to be energetic to be an alien?

Of course. How else would they get here and be on the X- Files?

As Archie Bunker would say, case closed. Or is it? Is the answer to my question still out there or in our living room parked in front of the TV?
