These two paintings are before and after Radford City paintings.  The New Memorial Bridge is beautiful but I loved the complicated lattice work of the old one.

 Radford University Ghost Story

I am still finding New River Valley Ghost stories!

There is a rumor that a girl hanged herself in an elevator shaft in Tyler Hall at Radford University when it was an all girl college.  The story is that she was with child by a professor and became so despondent that she ended her life. Student/Professor relationships were strictly forbidden in those days.


The writer of the story for The Tartan in 1995 said that one night an RA told her he noticed the door was open to the old shaft and he looked in and saw a rope hanging from the top of it. The rope startled him since he was familiar with the tale but just thought it was another rope.  He shut the door but had to shut it three more times that night.

Students on the third floor have reported sounds of a baby crying that seem to be coming from the attic.


I got this story from WHIM, RUs online magazine.


Too Much Information

I think we are so bombarded with words on the internet that we are reading way too fast and missing very important information.  Since I am a professional artist and I sell online I communicate with a lot of people all the time.

Sometimes I get messages from men that would like a relationship with me that is more than friendship.  I am flattered but I am happily married and I always send that in the message.  Oftentimes after I send that message I get another message with the same request for a relationship.

We need to slow down a little!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Before I met Clyde I didn’t know anything about birds beyond a robin, crow, or eagle.  I am still do not know anywhere near what he knows about bird and butterflies but I know a lot more now that when I was single.

Clyde is not much for the beach but I am not happy if I don’t get there once a year.  Many years ago at Rehoboth beach he pointed out an osprey to me flying over the waves.  I had never heard of that eagle before that day.  It is a beautiful bird and here is a painting I made to celebrate the flight of the osprey.

  1. What i don’t understood is in fact how you’re now not really a lot more neatly-appreciated than
    you might be now. You’re very intelligent. You understand thus considerably in the case of this
    topic, made me individually consider it from a lot of various angles.
    Its like men and women don’t seem to be involved unless it’s something to do with Lady gaga!
    Your individual stuffs excellent. At all times take care of it up!
